Another One Bites the Dust

I usually check on the chicks in the morning after I milk the ladies.  Today, I went into the barn instead to give our hens some cucumbers from the garden.  Hubby checked on them instead and called to me to stay in the barn and I knew there was a creature who shall not be named about.  A legless lizard.  A demon that starts with an ‘s’ and ends with a ‘nake’.  I can’t even say it…  After much commotion including delicious clubbing sounds, the coast was clear.  Did I ever tell you my husband is my hero?  Superhero.  One of our chicks was dead in the chicken tractor.  We removed the heat lamp & the tarp and drug the tractor into the pasture where there are really (really) big dogs.  If they freeze to death, so be it.  If we left them where they were this morning, they would starve to death because I would never go in and feed them again.  I’m just saying….

    Hey there! Nice blog. You’ve got a great start at it.

      Hi Mieljolie! I do not know what kind of visitor we had but it killed one of our chickens so is a very very bad one. We want to kill our chickens!
