Hey, all, I want to thank you for your nice gifts, and visits today in honor of my diary pick. Mom did discover it fairly early this morning, but she was busy ALL DAY today. She said she was making up for yesterday when she couldn't get out of her own way, BOL!!!
Anyway, she had to work this morning and the boarding kennel is pretty full cuz it's school vacation. While she was over there along came Julia and her Mom. Our Mom was going to a nearby bigger town to deliver Lola back to her new Mom and to have lunch with Lola's new Mom after work so, she invited Julia to go along so, of course, her favorite dog, Toto, got to go, too. So, they had lunch, did a bunch of shopping and finally headed back home.
Along the way they had to stop at a new Tractor Supply store nearby to get a bigger trap to try and catch Joey. Well, they were looking around there and discovered it is chick week.
Mom is an old farm girl, and, in fact, up until a few years ago she ALWAYS had some hens for their eggs and had been thinking about getting some this year. Well, she and Julia decided it was definitely time to get some chicks again!!! Mom bought a really neat hen house they had, and will be picking up the chicks on Wednesday.
When they got home I helped put the hen house together. I was a BIG help!!! Not sure they could have done it without me, BOL!
Mom is going to put the chicks in the Crested pen outside since all us dogs now go together in the same outside pen so we don't need that one. Mom says she certainly HOPES they will eat the ticks, in fact, she says she may even pick up a few guinea chicks as well.
But, until those chicks are done brooding (see, I even got the terminology right, BOL), they will have to stay in our inside puppy pen. Hopefully, they can stay in the hen house in there cuz otherwise I suspect those kittens will be eating chicks, hehehe!! Hope Mom has realized that, too, and will make sure they are safe!
Anyway, with all that stuff going on all day long we didn't have any time to write any diaries. Sooo, better late than never, I guess!!!
Oh yeah, be sure to congratulate my friend Zaidie cuz he was a diary pick, too!!!!
