    Uh NOPE. By the time I recover from this it'll be time to do it all again. :lol:

    There are still dishes in the sink and folded laundry on the table, and let's not talk about the junk in the yards. But the floors are clean and I polished the wooden furniture. So, that's clean enough. :weee

    It was "clean out the kitchen" day here in preparation for all the yummy food this week -- made the chickens a treat. Found an expired graham crust in the cupboard so I tossed in what was left of a bag of dried meal worms, a handful of cat kibble that had gotten spilled in the feed storage cupboard and a partial jar of applesauce from the refrigerator. They also had a side of old tomatoes and some chopped up pork chop. It was perfect timing because DD had texted me a request for a pie recipe for the "friendsgiving" she and her roomies are hosting tomorrow, so I sent her this picture:

    That is so wonderful! Are they in the house? Keep an eye on them for a while.

    I have a BYC friend who has had some amazing little bantams, with some Silkie in them. Older chicks will come around and try to help mother the new chicks. Not every one will be like that, but Silkies in general, are good mammas, and it can start early!

    Yes they're inside. The baby can't go out for a while. Thank you so much for suggesting that. This I'd wonderful. They will probably be best friends. If all goes right my baby chick won't have to be an only child.

    Me. Are they still happy together? If you see them snuggle together, you've got it made. The Silkie may not like the little one trying to get under her, which I'm sure it will try to do, so watch out for that. Also, the Silkie may be too warm under the heat lamp, but the little needs the heat, so watch out for that too.
