The bad news is that winter is sticking around for longer than I want to think about.
Oh, and Bart attacked me every time I tried to collect eggs today. And filling the waterer was almost impossible.
He definitely has my number. He is totally making my chicken farmer routine very unpleasant.
Continuing to make the day interesting, I dumped almost a whole bag of pellets on the floor.
Which I had to pick up quick, as someone thought it might be a new kind of CAT LITTER.
Not saying any names.
I spent the afternoon tying on a new warp, for more mobius shawls. Not a problem really, just tedious.
The good news is that my friend's husband came and took Bart home with him late this afternoon. Last year, all his chickens but one, were killed by a marauding group of raccoons. I gifted him with four of my young hens, to give him five.
He went into the coop today, grabbed Bart by the legs, and took him home. Bart promptly jumped up on the roost with the new girls, in his new digs. He probably crowed. Fickle b******.
Bart doesn't know it yet, but his new owner is not going to put up with any crap from him. So maybe it will work out.
I will miss him crowing. And that's about it.
Anybody know of a rooster recording that you can program???
Maybe I need to invent that one, for all those "roosterless" hen houses.
I am so excited, now I can go into my hen house, without being assaulted.
Speaking of excited, tomorrow I am going to pay this little lady a visit.
It doesn't get much better than that.
