We've been getting busy with work so when I get home I sit down to relax and fall asleep right away. Last night I forgot to lock the chickens up for the night but it's worse than that. I accidentally locked them OUT of their house (they were in the run) and even left the soaker hose on (soaker hose+shade cloth=swamp cooler when it's hot but over night = mess) and FLOODED the coop. It dried out over the course of the hot day but still... Then today I fell asleep again. I had locked them inside the house but they didn't look happy so I let them out again but didn't lock it LOL. I woke up at midnight and ran out to check on them. No chickens in the chick-house. No chickens in the coop. Where the heck are they? Then I hear something...I look up. They flew up onto the shade cloth ceiling! I thought for sure they would end up being eaten by an owl or something. I had to stand on a bucket and grab each one by hand to put them into the house. I even had to "pop" a few to get them closer to the edge. I felt so bad, I'm a bad mom. That will sure teach me a lesson. Tomorrow I'm setting an alarm just in case I fall asleep again. Anyone else have these moments?
