It was very nice here this morning...not too hot, not too cold. In honor of that, Mom decided to leave us outside since she gets home early on Wednesday.
Well, she got home early and went out to collect the eggs. As soon as she stepped out the door, she discovered a dead pullet. Ooops! She looked around and there were feathers everywhere. Furious, she brought us all inside and put us in our crates.
She went back out and realized that only ONE of us could get out of our pen. Riley red toes (now they are red with blood, BOL) digs under the gates and obviously he let the chicken out.
Mom looked in the chicken pen... NO BABIES were to be seen anywhere. Now she was REALLY MAD. She went in and there was a dead Guinea, right by Riley's hole. Looking further, she didn't find any more dead ones so she lifted the roof of their house and found two pullets and one Guinea in there.
To get to the end faster, after she found some of the babies hiding under the lilac bush, she realized only 4 were actually missing. She had found two bodies and lots of feathers, but two were still missing in MY pen.
Well, it turns out MY belly is really bulging, and I have nasty sticky stuff in my ears and on my front legs, (looks red???). Everyone else ate their dinner, but I wasn't hungry. Sooo, that makes me guilty!!!
Soo, now she has banished me to my crate for the night and until I can get groomed again.
Soo, I am thinking this is sooo not fair. Riley digs out, digs a hole for the chickens to get out, they do and they come into MY pen and I am punished for taking care of them???? Does that seem right to anyone else?
