Good morning on this beautiful crisp spring day. As I sit outside on my back deck watching my chicky babies doing their morning foraging, I am contemplating building my “12” a special coop back here so that I can still spend time with them everyday. I’m afraid once they get moved out to the bigger coop and run I won’t get to spend as much time with them. I’m thinking of just using the big new coop and run for the 22 white rocks I have in the brooder in the garage. That way they will have plenty of room out there. I have become very close to my “12” and just love being with them. If they are right here in the back yard I can see them whenever I want and don’t have to go to far. It is so cute right now because Daisy , Foghorn and Henny Penny are actually on the deck with me. They haven’t ever done that yet. I guess they consider me part of their flock now. I’m afraid I will miss them to much if I move them to the other side of the yard.
I finally got my 2 guineas yesterday. I bought them to help with bug control and for protection for the others. I’ve read that they are good for those things. I’m thinking of naming them Rambo and Mr. T. or maybe Navy and Marine. I guess we will find out in a few weeks, when we can tell if they are boys or girls. They are really cute right now and they sound like crickets chirping in the brooder.
Well signing off for now, got a new coop to design.
