Farm update :
Our morning started off with an unrealistic but optimistic idea to move our meat chicks into the big barn so our smaller chicks could have more room.
This did not go as planned.
As we checked the fence to let out the meat chicks for some air and sun, Corey discovered a Rhode Island Red chick had somehow escaped the locked down chick coop. (The pigs are really causing a lot of headaches.) Unfortunately, one of our cats ALSO discovered the RIR chick roaming around and beat Corey to it. This escalated into a frantic family chase for the cat, finally caught by William, although too late. We buried - Spice the chick next to Pepper the chick (a chick that died during hatching).
They are buried in the same box as Corey's peppers are growing.
NEXT, one of the dogs bit Steve (or Wilbur - I still can't tell them apart) Which evolved into ANOTHER family chase to catch the bleeding pig.
The chicks didn't get moved - for another week or two, and I'm still missing a piggy. I don't think it's the injured one either.
