Buff Update

The Buff Orpington doesn't look or act like she has a problem. The holes are closing slowly.

She would rather eat her feed and scratch off the floor so I sprinkle the feed and treats on the straw.

We hope she is going to be ok.

Today there was a beautiful blue sky and now and then a breeze. It was still in the 50's.

I'm looking forward to seeing some green leaves on these trees. And I will welcome some warm weather.

Tom bought some 3" screws for me to use to hold the planter beds together. I was going to use nails, but I think screws will be better anchors.

I fed the sprouts to the chickens today. They made short work of them. If I do any more sprouting I will wait until I can get some better lentils. The store brand lentils didn't all sprout and they took a long time to do anything.

I enjoyed watching The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency on my computer. I liked the shows even better than the book which is unusual. Kristine got the DVD's from the library. She checks out DVD's and books for me. I'm so lucky!

I think the Buff cutie will be OK. I hope the others will accept her when it is time to go back after being out of the clan for all this time. She just may want "room service" forever. :) I see you have a pine tree, too. I really enjoy ours during the winter months. Our other big trees are mostly hackberry and it takes them forever to leaf out. 3" screws: Screws definitely better than nails. I did nails and some of the boards warped and pulled the nails out. 3" = even better. I've never seen lentils take so long to sprout. Better luck with the next choice, but this one was lucky for the girls - what a treat! I worked at libraries for a few years a long time ago, and I really loved it. (Please check your wire basket and clean eggs link, it didn't work for me, thanks.)
