Too many cats!!
Battery in my camera died and I didn't get hardly any pictures this weekend... just didn't get to it. Did get a couple of pictures of one of the cuckoo marrans.. they're getting big! Sunday I'll be bringing in my bunny hutch to get the bigger babies out of the brood cage I have set up, give them more room to wander around in. Still too unpredictable for weather for them to go outside yet.. if I'd taken them outside yesterday, they'd been blown to Kansas! Plus I don't have the coop built yet. That's probably next week's project when I feel up to it.

But one of the Marrans decided that she wanted to explore.. and I had the door open to their cage, so she just hopped right onto the door frame! no no no.. little chickies stay INSIDE the cage for right now. I don't think any of my cats would hurt the chick, but I don't want to take any chances. Me holding a chick for a cat to sniff is one thing, a little floofball running around looking all for the world like a mobile cat toy? That's a different ballpark.

I'll be introducing some dandelion to the bigger babies when I move them over. I don't have hardly any grass growing right now.. I may offer them some beet tops too, if they want. And carrot mush as I'll be juicing some carrots next Sunday (along with the beets & some oranges.. they LOVE oranges).

But here's the Marran who decided she wanted to explore.

Never be afraid of a scar. It just means that you were stronger than something that tried to hurt you.

I had a horrific night last night, finally got to sleep at 5am just to be awoken at 7am by my alarm. Groggy & still half asleep, headed into work without checking on the chicks. When I finally woke up enough to be coherent, I asked John (who works from home) to check on the chicks. They needed to be fed, which he fed them. But he didn't check their water, so when I got home this evening, they were desperate for water. Poor babies. They went through 3 containers of water! Of course the heat lamp doesn't help either. so I made sure that all 3 of the containers had water. One of the babies, I think one of the Columbian Wynadottes, was in bad way. I gently helped her drink her fill separate from the other chickens. She was much better after that. If she makes it through the night, she should be OK. *sigh* I hate things like this and it's purely my fault. But I honestly almost ended up in the ER last night (my right lower leg was the same size as my thigh... it was so badly swollen and red & painful & had a nasty rash on my entire shin.. that's why I was awake all night). But I won't let this happen again.

You need to trip your boss with the swollen leg so he gets a good look while he's on the floor!

Oh no, so sorry Toni, both about the chicks and your leg. I asked on other thread about your boots but I see, you won't be wearing them if your leg is that bad. Can you get in to see the doctor?

Legs.. well, we don't talk about them. Mom always said if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

But this morning, got up & took care of chicks first thing before anything else. Everyone's doing good! While I was feeding/watering them, I put the camera right inside the cage & started to snap some pictures. One of the cuckoo marrans is VERY feisty! Kept attacking the camera.

The Wynadotte I was worried about.. here she is doing her "chicken yoga". She's the little one in the bottom left.

Then as I was doing the waterer, she stuffed her head in the food dispenser.

I took out the food dispenser so I could fill it up and dumped the crumbs on the mat inside the cage. They all took advantage of that.

Then the chicks noticed the camera.

The very last picture.. that particular chick (Cuckoo Marran) was actually pecking at the camera! It was pretty funny IMO.. she was pecking at my rings, too.

How cute. Glad the chickies are doing better.

Wish you weren't suffering. Hope you get answers and relief soon.
