Goal: a Hen in Every Yard
Paperwork was picked up from the city offices this morning, and after a brief glance everything seems pretty straightforward. We’re in compliance with all the rules, now we just need to draw up the dimensions and submit the application along with the $35 license fee.
The girls are strolling around their run during the daytime, and being brought inside like spoiled pets at night. What? it’s getting down into the low 30’s at night right now, and I’d be a hot mess if I inadvertently harmed them by leaving them out in the cold while they’re still so young. The good news is that the chicks are learning that the cat carrier is their best friend, and they walk right in with a little shooing when I come out at dusk.
Little Girl still has some of her head fluff hanging on, despite looking like a mini adult everywhere else. So cute! I love that she looks like a painting in this picture below. Part of me will miss having these little girls in the house, despite being relieved that I won’t have to clean up the wood shavings they kick out of their brooder box.
