First off I need to tell you how very much I have enjoyed the broodies you have so graciously sent my way. Okay, two were too stupid to get the job done, but hey! you tried right? Even if Jethro and Ellie Mae are clueless little...at least Doe got it right. It brings joy to my heart every day watching her raise her chicks. The thing is my dear broody magician friend, DH and I are finally planning our trip to Florida to see my dad. We'll be gone about a week and a half, at least. I am refusing to go until Doe's chicks are around five weeks old. I want to make sure everyone is settled and happy in that coop before I leave them in the care of my stepdaughter. Let's face it, I can barely depend on the girl to keep all the critters alive, let alone expect her to deal with a broody. So, could you please hold off on sending me any more broodies until, say, the beginning of April? We'll be back by then and any future broodies will receive the care they deserve. I know it's asking alot of you, but could you do it for me, just this once? Please?
