    [​IMG] Good Morning Peeps!

    Yesterday, @Sally Sunshine , asked what our plans for the day were and I had to work [​IMG] Today I am OFF! Okay, I'm "off" everyday but today I don't have to go to work!! [​IMG]

    Since we will have daytime temps above freezing for the next few days, I will be doing some coop chores today (and some inside housework but I'm not happy to be doing that)! My DH says he never imaged someone could be happy about cleaning dirty "chicken dishes" and chicken poop, but I am! [​IMG] Love my flock!!
    I will be:
    1. removing the heated dog dish waterers and giving them a few days of rest and put the plain waterers out.
    2. "stirring" the litter and adding some fresh shavings and shredded leaves.
    3. checking the nest boxes to see what needs refreshing with new hay
    4. hand feeding some meal worms and canned corn for some personal time with my girls and guys

    I hope everyone has a great day!

    [​IMG] Sorry you lost one chick. I know I am always so apprehensive the first morning after putting new chicks out in a brooder! You never know what will happen when they are so young! But the good thing is - every day the chicks make it is a day they are getting stronger and more likely to thrive! [​IMG] and prayers that the rest of them will do just fine through the rest of the cold season!

    I can't see any on that list that you should take off, maybe add pigeons and ducks though [​IMG]. And add some other coturnix quail colors besides Pharaoh, like maybe silver or scarlet.
