Rufus is quite proud of his mixed bag of offspring (some may not be his, but don't tell him that...). They have taken to their little home for the next several weeks. It's Gigi's dog crate, but we'll call it a brooder. They are mutts, but they are adorable mutts.
Tomorrow I'll be setting up the other brooder for the chicks who should arrive this weekend. I've also got to create a nice warm spot for the duckies and goosies. We are having our first annual Chickfest (I should have called it "Chickapalooza", but I already printed the invites) on April 1st.. It will be a big party for friends and future chicken parents. After the party they can take home their chicks and I'll be left with a much more manageable number. Did I mention that FIFTY chickens will be arriving this weekend???
