Ever since losing them we have been wanting to get Alexa another Silkie or two. or maybe five?
These 3 came from a really nice young woman who is a Vet Tech and loves chickens.
These two came from a breeder of show quality birds who also does a lot of rescue work and has an amazing place up on Mt. Charleston.
So now Lexi has Furry Chickens again, we relocated the juvenile aviary to the fence line of the Chicken Run and cut a hole in the fence for the door so that she can go visit her babies anytime she likes without any risk of letting the Big Chickens out. Karen is going to find a stool or small chair to place inside the pen so Lexi can just hang out with her new friends.
About 2 weeks ago Karen got a call from the Humane Society asking if she could bottle feed/ween/socialize 6 kittens. As you can see above they are eating on their own and well adjusted to humans and other critters. They were all healthy and had all of their limbs so all of them went back Saturday to take featured billing at an adoption event soon!
The latest craze in chicken feeding over on BYC is fodder and I had planned on writing up a description of my plunge into creating a fodder system but I just aint in to it right now. Maybe next week, but until then go check out this thread on the subject.
