Chicks out of the bathtub, rooster on the loose!

Finally, the chicks have enough feathers that they are out in the brooder in the barn. Thanks to Teri and her magical scrub brush, the italian tile has been cleaned; sorry, no longer for sale! Fowl are still running amuck, though, because we have a new house rooster that seems to think he is a parakeet. We tried to put him out in the barn, but as quick as anything he made a beeline for the house and has been living in the kitchen ever since! Thanks to Lisa and Bryan Morris who donated a palace of a bird cage for him to call home. He is a fantastic alarm clock . . . he begins crowing promptly at 4:30 every morning! Being a banty, his falsetto is a true wake up call! Maybe we should teach him to crow "Reville". Any volunteers? Report 4:30 a.m. sharp!!
