The Hubbards, our five chicks, are moving out of the guest room into the garage tomorrow. I think we pamper them a bit and keep the lamp on too long, specially since the room is centrally heated. We've had the window open today, so it's been quite cool and they weren't huddling for warmth. They are quite well feathered now and sh*t for Britain.

So Dan's outside converting one of the portable runs for a hen house into a home for the chicks. within the garage. We will leave the lamp in - they can have it on at night still - but we can open the garage doors to toughen them up, then soon they can go REALLY outside.

I'm hoping that future broods will be outside almost from the word go.

Hello Rosemary and Dan;

We have been so VERY busy around here,that I have not been able to come visit!! We have had to remove over three feet of snow from our roof; not only once but twice. Our WHOLE community has been working together to try and keep ahead of the snow this year!! Our roof is over 5,000 sq. feet, so it takes a LOT of work!

It looks like the new chickens are doing well. Anxious to see a photo or two.

I will send some new snow pictures before long.

Take care and pet the animals once or twice for me. Our cat, Two Spots had to go to the vet for an lung infection. He is finally doing better.

Hope all is well with you both and your family of humans and animals!
