How hot was it

How the heat has effected our place.

The dogs – only go out to do business and then promptly retreat back into the house and onto the vents.

The chickens – when brought snacks will pick them up and run back to the shade; under the deck, in the pine tree, the broken sprinkler, and only come out for brief moments for substance.

The humans – only go outside when needed and when we do sweat off 10 pounds but quickly replace it with 10 gallons of liquid apron our returning indoors to rehydrate!

Seeking donations

I like to tease my friend that lives with us about her chicken legs – mostly because Carmine our roster likes to chase after her. I tell her it’s because she’s one fine chick and he just wants to add her to his harem. It would not be so bad if she had not been traumatized as a child – but she has to carry around a lunge whip to keep him at bay.

I saw this the other day and I thought it might help her.

Yesterday

Had a rough day yesterday- lost one of the baby chickens, the nest then got flooded out and mama refused to go back to the eggs. Had to find an emergency incubator but we don’t know if the eggs will hatch. I also dump weed killer all over me because I forgot to put the lid on my backpack spray and got burnt because I spent longer than I excepted cleaning up the little truck.

And that is why I didn’t post yesterday.
