Big Daddy is leaving for his new home in a couple of hours.
I'm so very happy for him, but a kinda sad to see him go - he's been a fixture here for almost five months now, wow does time ever go by fast.
I hope his transport goes well as it's a few hours away... No more spending long lonely hours all by himself, at least I hope he has many companions at his new place - he needs that. I wish I could tell him how sorry I am that I wasn't able to erase his inner demons, but at least he's physically healthy again, big and strong.
What an adventure this has all been!
I wanted to thank you all for your kind words of encouragement along the way, and for helping me clear the brain cobwebs the other day.
Not having a paying job is a daily fight to not feel worthless, I don't know where that comes from because no-one but me is pointing the finger. I do see myself more as a human doing than a human being, it's not that I'm lazy - far from it, I have a hard time chilling out - but still, not seeing an influx of funds in my bank account every two weeks takes some getting used to.
Yeah, OK, 'nuff about that.
I have to prep the last flock's new winter quarters in the barn, Vegas and I are moving them this afternoon. Finally everyone in the same place, woo!
Yesterday's move went beautifully, the chooks adapted super quickly to their new surroundings and seem quite content - hurrah! The girls found the nesting boxes this morning, no eggs on the floor or in strange places, mama's very proud :)
Mind you, the horses didn't seem so impressed with all the hollerin'... those damn roosters and their karaoke sessions!
