But then, I decided that maybe Myrtle, Harriet, Elsie, Gertrude, Eggatha, and Scarlet might like to go to the farm for a holiday away from Rocky (I know I'm enjoying it). It was hot, hot, hot on Monday (and humid). I didn't feel like chasing chickens around, so I brought the Vari200 in the house and waited. I figured Gertie or Elsie would lead the others to the patio door at some point looking for cheese. Gertie was the first to show up, so she got a ticket to the farm. It wasn't long before the others followed. The crate was a bit crowded, but they didn't seem to mind traveling steerage. Once at the farm, they ran around checking out everything. At night, they roosted in their old spots. Yesterday morning as I was getting ready to drive the DH to the airport, I heard a "scratching" on the door. Yup--Myrtle was demanding to come in for cheese. I think I might be a chicken enabler...besides maybe babying them a bit...When I stopped at the house in the City, Penny "scratched" on the patio door to come in...I see that I might have started something with letting them in to have a bit of cheese...they love cheese....
Now you have to give it to them when they ask so politely.

Are you going to be like my father and take pictures of every critter born? When I was a kid my dad got us out of bed to watch every litter of baby pigs being born. I think he had more baby pig pictures than pictures of his kids. LOL.

Since I don't have kids, I have to take pictures of something!

PF--I thought you'd come up with a "knock-knock" joke.

Not yet--at least not this a.m. I checked at at 6:00 a.m. Just got back from serving as a volunteer at an all-day charity event since I'm a board member for that charity...I'm beat! I have a bit of time before dusk settles and I have to go out and lock up the chickens...probably just enough time to watch a segment of a cooking show and have a glass of red.

Peep-peep! There are two baby chicks (so far--it was almost dark when I went to make sure Miss Broodie and her eggs were locked down--I left them locked down this a.m.). One is "dark" like Rocky--oh-oh, the other is a little blonde chick. I put them back in the nest box with Miss Broodie and will be up early in the a.m. to take pics! Peep-peep--we have baby chicks!
