I was so happy to have worn a hat to protect me from the sun rays!

We had the chicks again last week and they are so big now! We enjoyed taking them out to the garden as they were living in our bathroom, not a good place to keep chickens! Still we would spend time watching them adventure out into the garden and forage for little treats. One day maybe we can have some of our own?

Then we went to the last Poultry Project meeting for the year and Missy was bathing chickens – the chickens did not like it at all! You would wash them in dishwashing liquid, and clean their feet with a toothbrush, check their vent (butt) for lice and mites and then rinse them off and dry them with a towel. The chickens were happy when it was over!

Oh and those pygmy goats that were due to have babies had them last week and boy they are so cute! This one is sleeping as it was just born the day before – Mama goat was so tired!
