And so you should. I was planning a midnight raid for chicken pot pies. But someone squealed on me. Said they would be there with the shotgun. I didn't like the sound of that at all.

I did dream about them last night...Harriet and Myrtle's feathers changed color--they looked like they had peacock feathers!

Gosh-darn, what have the girls been doing? Well, Silly Millie is laying her eggs in the barn loft---I have to assume a yoga position for which I don't know the name to collect her daily offering--cluck-cluck-purr...she's so proud of that egg and helps me find it--she doesn't know I go inside and apply a heating pad to that spot...Scarlett is looking, well, a bit abused--she's molting. Cocky Rocky is not doing his job when it comes to mice, but once I stop feeding the chickens, maybe the mice will move out--the grass is coming back, and they can go outside, take dirt baths, eat grass, etc., and really aren't happy when I "force" them back in the barn at 5:00 p.m. I am worried that the hawks might be out hunting--one almost hit the windshield of the car the other day--so far, the "loss" rate for chickens (purchased 17, still have 16) is, I think pretty good for a first-time chicken keeper (pat-pat-pat is the sound of me patting myself on the back for not killing them or poisoning them by feeding them something they shouldn't eat). I am having a debate with myself about ordering more or to get a couple of ducks....or a dairy cow/goat....I love it that they still come running when I go out to check on them...They are so funny. Maybe I should just hold steady and not add any more livestock...

If you rally want some enjoyment let one of the girls hatch a clutch. The only thing is if one of the babies turns out to be a boy, you are going to have to make a tough decision. You just can't have two Kings of the Roost struting around the barnyard. One will have to go into the pot.

Definitely more babies. Then you can watch them grow. and watch the other chickens try to mother them. Let a clutch develop in the barn. They will be safe there from those dang hawks. Just not up in the loft. then therewill be the problem of how the mother hen is going to bring them down.

We have huge black crows...worry about Patron when I take him outside at work.

I would just carry the chicks down in a bucket...

I am probably wrong, but I'm under the impression that crows prefer carrion. Do they eat fresh meat also? I have always put them in the class with buzzards.
