eleven...

again.

Another black pullet/hen came out of hiding from the dog attack. Now there is eleven. And the dog is gone. Guilt. Guilt? I thought he killed them, but now it seems he only injured two of the eleven. But that dog was a ticking time bomb. So I shouldn't feel guilty. Right?

The Lesson:
  1. Do not forget about hope.
  2. Don't count your chickens after a dog attack.
  3. Bella (the beagle) and I are Super Heros.

While I had my camera out, I thought I might take a picture of my Goat herding chair.



So far, goat herding is very much like watching TV.


Meanwhile, these little darlings have no home. They can't be in the barn with the President Day chickens, they can't be in the coop with the ducks and the second batches. I have turned their old home into a rooster jail. So now they live under the jail. Benefits: free food, teasing the killer above, living life adventurously. They seem to be doing well. They are super cute.

Lesson:
  1. Don't be afraid.
  2. Adapt to change.
  3. Travel in pairs.

Lesson:
  1. You made your bed, now lay in it.
  2. Maybe I like my mucky bed.
  3. Be a good bed maker.


That's all for today.

  1. Wow. I wish my missing chickens would show up :-( Also, we had a snake eat one of our chicks, which was in a chick box so we thought it was safe.

  2. I thought of you when "ring-tone two" showed up.

    Poor chickie. Gosh Lisa, you really have been getting hit from all angles. :(

    I hope you have a chicken who comes home.
