I don’t care – as long as they’re out of my house!!
The chicks have finally upgraded from their brooder in the laundry room – to their coop outside!! (Hallelujah!) I love the little featheries but, seriously, they were driving me nuts. Firstly – Butterscotch-the-cow has confirmed his rooster-hood by learning to crow (well, more like the 13 year old boy with a voice that cracks between low and high version). In my laundry room. At the crack of dawn. Every.single.day. Oh hhhheeellllllllll no.
Secondly, chickens stink because they poop 99.9% of their breathing hours (they even poop in their sleep) and there was nothing I could do to keep up with it because the bigger they get, the MORE they poop (in my laundry room, what should be the cleanest room of the entire house).
Thirdly, they’re BIG! They kept breaking free of their brooder and spreading poop all over my laundry room, and I only ever knew because Butterscotch-the-cow lets out a huge crow of success every time he manages to free them – so when I hear it at random times, I know what it means.
They’re still cute, and fun, and full of personality – but now they’re cute, and fun and full of personality outside…where they belong. Ahh, the bliss of a chicken free house.
