Whole New World

The chickens have moved out of the basement. The publicist is happy about this but I am not happy about this AT ALL. The chicken tractor is IN MY GOAT PEN.


Can you imagine such a thing? Harumph! Now I have to admit that the male person did a very nice job in building the chicken tractor. The roof even matches the roof of my barn. Here he is putting some finishing touches on it:

It took some thinking for the publicist and the male person to figure out how to get the chickens from the basement to the tractor. They had about destroyed their brooder.

Then the publicist thought of the cat carriers! This worked very well. They could carry three chickens at a time this way and she had three carriers so it didn't take too long. The hardest part for her was catching the chickens. She is very glad that no one was taking video of her because she feels that SHE looked like a chicken chasing them around!

Here are the first three in the top part of the tractor:

After a bit half of the chickens were in the top part

and half were in the bottom:

It is a very nice place for the chickens to live; inside the top part there are rows of roosts for the chickens to use at night.

There is even a cute little ramp for them to walk on to go in and out of the top part.

They seemed happy today but the publicist did have to "help" some of the chickens out into the warm sunshine. She figures that in time they will understand that they should come out during the day and go back in at night. In fact the male person had to help them in to the top part last night. Silly birds!

Tomorrow you will see how we all reacted to the presence of the chicken tractor in our pen.

I want to offer my congratulations to Rabbit Hill Farm. They have won the sample sized soap for winning the "What's That Smell" game from yesterday. The publicist really chuckled at Buck Muck. Heh heh. That is a funny name.
