I'm ignoring this shitty weather (ie: freezing rain and snow) by focusing on good stuff - besides, it can't rain all the time* - right?
My friend's hatch went brilliantly: 23 beautiful healthy chicks out of 24 eggs, which is a phenomenal success rate! I'm keeping one, and he's picking up the rest tomorrow evening. We're both so thrilled :)
Today was for driving a few towns over to meet my mom & stepdad for lunch - lovely time, btw - and pick up a young easter-egger hen as well as seven blue laced red wyandotte chicks: yey! They're gorgeous and they're very rare around these parts so I hope they grow up to be good specimens.
I'm all chickened out now.
Yes, you heard me: I've reached my limit, LOL!
In other news, one of the idiot boys (Dakotah) took himself off on a rabbit-hunting expedition this afternoon, in the muddy rain, only the rabbits are someone's pets in a hutch the next street over - GAAH! We got a phone call to come get our dog, quick - and let me tell you he got a beating! MoFo! He's escaped over a dozen times now the past month with no repercussions and today was just the straw that broke the boombah's back.
Time to pretend to make dinner. Vegas is downstairs training and he expects a hot meal right after, I've instructions to have food ready by 7pm. I wonder if he'll like Kraft Dinner with ketchup in a smiley face?
Oh shut up, you know I kid.
Have a great weekend, peeps!
