Yeah I will keep them in, I am surprised. I did my last check for Ethel at 9PM and she wasn't there. I kind of gave up. My husband went looking into the wooded area across the street from us in case she hopped the fence and decided to cross the road . We were just talking yesterday about how everyone else has adventurous chickens and ours are too lazy to even go into the garden which only has like a three foot fence. Lucy on the swingset was the highest we have ever seen anyone...and she climbed the ladder. So my eggs are scheduled to be here tomorrow but I am nervous because tracking says they are still in Florida. Also we finally had an architect out here on Saturday and another is coming tomorrow with an estimator. It looks like my kitchen will finally be bigger. Also my husband and I are talking about adding five or so fruit trees in the back yard and some blackberries/raspberry/blueberry bushes. I have two blueberries already which have borne no fruit even with two species. Sooooooooo big projects to tackle in the next year. Did i mention the shed coop? from last years 'honey do' list. I think I am going to have to resort to keeping chickens in the house again to get THAT rolling... SB Mom I need a pancake chicken. MC good luck with the head count.
