Well, not entirely housebound. I did have to make some trips to the store.
I am going to my sister's to see my niece's daughter dance in a dance recital.
I'll only be gone 2 days but even leaving for that long requires planning. Mostly because of the animals.
I have Carol from my old barn, who is also a petsitter, coming in to take care of the dogs and chickens!
(It's ok, she does farm sitting too!)
My sister is coming back with me for a visit here for a couple weeks.
This is the last week for the chickens in the bathroom. I'll be moving them to their coop when I get home.
I let them out from their little brooder for long periods during the day.
Yes, they make a big mess.
The top picture is after I brought them some yogurt. They love it and it helps keep their poop from being too runny.
This is Martha, every time I sit down, she's on my lap!
This is Mollie. She's a little shy but looks a lot like Martha the other buff orpington.
This is another shy girl. It's Lilly, she's a light colored easter egger.
And here's Dottie. She's very friendly and probably the head of the pecking order.
She looks a little rough now but will grow into a beautiful Silver laced Wyandotte.
Eggo didn't want her picture taken today. I think she was having a bad hair day.
