Today I let my hens out in the yard, as it is very warm today. The seem to lay eggs better if they have grass to eat, and dust baths to take and just wandering around taking in the sights.
It was later than I normally put them away. I put them up about 4:00 in the afternoon if I have let them out.
Tonight I was feeding them and I picked up a feeder and two mice squeaked loudly as I let them see the bright light of day. Sasha missed them both and not a chicken to be seen. The hens were out in the garden.
Those were some of that fattest little round mice I have ever seen. Nice and slick brown coats.
The kids all looked at him, made all the right sounds like they do. He was just waking up and he was a bit cold so he wasn't moving much. I am pretty sure he was hungry. So in a sick way, I am sort of happy. I know that those nice, fat, round, mice will make good snake food. I left him in the little house. I made my husband collect eggs. He was wearing boots. :)
I realized something. Do you know, I hate wildlife. I have decided. I make okay coffee, but I am feeling a lot like Lisa Douglas and all of the stores are looking better and better.
My heart is beating it normal speed now.
I just thought you might like to hear about the snake. :)
