As soon as I started doing housework; the phone rang.
Wouldn't you know it? The chick order I placed came in early by a whole week. WHAT???? Mrs Parker was as surprised as I was --- she even got a box of bronze turkeys chicks. (are they called chicks?)
Yeppers sure did....so not only do I have to prepare for rabbits today. Tomorrow I will pick up 45 little peeping Buff Orphinton and Americana chicks. Mrs. Parker asked if I was interested in turkeys as well? I might just wind up taking a few females to raise for butchering this fall -- the males get quiet big at 35 pounds -- so I plan to stick with females. While, I am in town picking up the chicks I will order some Red Bourbon or Blue Slate to raise. Our little farm is expanding.
(Mrs. Honey & Mr. Johnny are driving down from Camp Wood with the rabbits so, I can not pick up the chicks until after they get here.)
ALSO, Zephyr has developed a chest cold. DRAT!
This weekend, since he passed a 'family milestone' (private issue) he will be getting his first bicycle. Woooo Hooo, My little man, Daddy's cubby is growing up so fast.
