PINK LIGHTNING AND FLOODED CHICKEN HOUSE

WHAT A STORM! WE HAD A STORM THAT STARTED WITH GREEN LIGHTNING TO THE SW AND ENDED (KIND OF...STILL GOING ON) WITH PINK SPIDER WEB LIGHTNING NE.

AND ABOUT 2 OR 3 INCHES OF POURING RAIN. I HATE MUD! I TOOK A SHOWER AND WENT OUT TO REFIL THE CHICKEN WATER BECAUSE I AM GIVING ANTIBIOTICS DUE TO RED BEING SICK AND FOUND THE ENTRANCE TO THE CHICKEN HOUSE UNDER ANKLE DEEP WATER. THE ROOST AREA WAS DRY, THE FEEDER IS HANGING AND DRY BUT THERE IS STANDING WATER UNDER IT. THE MIDDLE OF THE CHICKEN HOUSE IS DRY.

THE CHICKENS ARE WALKING AROUND THE DRY AREA SCRATCHING AND PECKING LIKE NOTHING BOTHERS THEM.

I REALLY LOVE CHICKENS. I GAVE THEM SOME CRACKED CORN AND BIRD FOOD IN A BOWL IN THE MIDDLE JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE SO FORGIVING.

Oh they are definately forgiving...esp. mine since are coop is held together barely by some nails and cheap plywood and pallets. I think its funny how we get so attached already to them. They're like family members...

You are not kidding. You know I hate to get rid of my dog and will find a good home for him. But i am not a dog person and would much rather have animals who are easy to care for. Dogs are high maintenance and chickens just aren't.
