Okay, the girls pulled at my heartstrings this morning by running and bumping into the side of their plastic tote brooder...they looked like a bunch of criminals in solitary confinement. So, I moved them into new digs...meaning hubby gave up 1/4 of the living room. The girls went from a 96 QT tote into a 6' diamieter octagon portable hot tub. Yes I sacrificed my hot tub. It is warm enough now that I can live without for until they are coop ready...or fall sets in. hahahaha The alarm girl...she refuses to perch anywhere but on the side...my SLW Speckles Playing in their dirt: While I was outside dismantling the hot tub, I got buzzed by a neat critter...a brown bat! I scooped him up to check him out as it was very bright and warm outside. As soon as I touched its little back to check it, it took off. Still odd to be out midday: My DH actually helped me bring the hot tub frame inside and put it together....and cut the limg for their perch. He says he does not care about the girls but I know better! He is no longer greeting them by saying "good morning soon to be sandwich" he is now greeting them with "where are my eggs? Get busy with it."
