OUT OF THE BOX
I'm holding the camera inside the brooder but cannot see what I'm taking a picture of. Nice legs on my girls, huh? LOL
Here is a curious soul peering out through the brooder's tattered skirt. Today it will probably get warm enough for them to take their first adventure walk in the chicken house.
The thirty Golden Comets (aka Golden Girls) are out of the box. They are now on the ground in the chicken house and free to run in and out. This time the cold weather has been a good thing because the little girls are not as eager to run out and are taking a little more time adapting to their surroundings. The big chickens peering in at them. The hen shown is Chicken Little, the last of my Aracauna's.
This brooder is rusted and the skirt is torn but it still serves the purpose with a lot of inventive upgrades by Ron. My chicken house is functional and works well for all our needs but we would not win a spot in Better Homes and Garden magazine.
Ron is doing great and his pain is lessening every day. Our doctor does not believe that he will have any lingering effects from the accident and now we only have to concern ourselves with replacing the vehicle.
Thanks for asking about my phantom post from yesterday morning. I did make and entry and then deleted it. Sometimes I do that. I felt badly because Linda G. made a nice comment just as I was deleting.
