So after all the primping and planning about "fixing" the beehive, turns out, the bees had taken care of the whole thing all by themselves. I shouldn't be surprised, but I am. They are amazing. I can't believe how calm they are when I am out there. There I am, prying the roof off the house and they just keep on keepin' on.
Sunday Cho-girl and I and another friend went Chicken Coop Touring. Comparing how different people solve the chicken run/coop challenge. Then we went to Tractor Supply to "look" at some baby chickens. Luckily, they were fresh outta the little guys. Thank heavens. I expect chicks and ducklings are only a teeny bit more resistible than kittens. Though having a cat actually makes kittens more resistible. Check out Starrhill Girl's recent cat antics.
With luck, tomorrow afternoon we will be doing a coop raising in the next neighborhood over. There are SO many people with chickens. It is remarkable. Cho suggested a float in the next Dogwood Parade. Instead of candy we can throw eggs. Sign me up. I'll start working out my throwing arm.
