Sometimes, the husbands of "chicken mama's" go to "''eggstream' measures to keep mama's happy and take care of the flock! If you read the last post you already know about the drama in the large version of 'chicken tractor' my husband built for us. The one that he bought an actual tractor (older) to move, even though it has wheels of it's own.
After removing "Daisy," before she met with an untimely death (at the wings of her fellow flock,) he had quickly assembled a tiny apartment for her. A couple days of isolation and we moved her apartment beside the other's condo. Another couple days for them to observe one another between fences with us thinking possibly the five offenders might feel guilty and sorry for their actions. So......we talk to "Daisy" about moving back home. She was rather quiet. Upon opening the door, there was no friendly greeting with open wings, nor an apology! The fight was on! Poor "Daisy" terrified of her own kind! (Ummm...guess that happens with all species, doesn't it, come to think about it!) Back to her lonely apartment, isolated but safe. Now to come up with options.
Husband likely favoring find new home for "Daisy" where she is wanted and loved. Chicken Mama--wants her and does love her! Why we can't just keep her separate with a little larger apartment makes perfect sense. Ah, ha......thinks he.
We will stop and look at a whole, new concept. You know, a permanent COOP. One of those "tiny" buildings they sell now. Really??
Guess what?? These girls (myself included perhaps) are treated right. Eggstream measures to keep Mama and her girls happy! Will "Daisy" be welcome in this new grand mansion due to arrive in about three weeks? Stay tuned for the "rest of the story." Oh, any ideas on which organic feed produces golden eggs?
