Went to the surgeon yesterday and not very good news, he said my back is in his own words was (jacked up!!). Then this morning I made Dianne's and sis in law Kaye's day cause I jacked up and locked myself in the chicken pen! Ha!! Ha!! Ha!! Dianne always tells me if I go outside to always carry my cell phone. THANKS!!! I had to call Andrew on his phone to let me out. No he wasn't laughing but he was grinning from ear to ear!!

Room getting pretty scarce for our chickens. We have 17 month old chicks in one pen, obamma and halbreed are in another pen with 3 three week old chicks, and we had to build a partition out of pvc pipe and 2 inch wire to separate stepanie who just went broody so chickzilla won't lay eggs on top of her, yep she will. They like to lay eggs in the same nest whether a chicken is in it or not. Chickzilla is our biggest hen we have right now and is also the calmist and will jump up on your lap to be petted if your sitting down!! She will also follow you around the yard!!
Finally caught the coon that's been killing our chicks and removing their toes. We've been trying to upgrade our pens so nothing can get in, we recently added 2ft to the top to make it 7ft tall so obamma and stephanie can't fly out. We also have a motion sensor light that's how we got the coon. Andrew saw the light on and saw the coon run up the tree, I held the light while Andrew shot him. A few days ago two of our chicks got killed (a white silkie, and a buff orpington) and halbreed lost a toe. The night we got the coon it got one of our barred rockchick's toes. We now have the pen where cats can't get in so we now have traps under the brooder just in case!! Don't know what else to do, we just keep trying.
