I was standing right inside the back door looking out and watching the heat waves float across the horizon when all the sudden a lone Blue Jay flew by and hovered right above the ground. I was fascinated by this little bird and wondered why it was just hovering around. Then the darnedest thing happen. All the sudden he pulled out some little oven mitts, put them over his little feet and then landed.
I say that as a joke but you should see the chickens. They stay under the one tree we have because it is the place where we wet the ground down and have fresh cool water. When they decide to go to the barn they all line up at the shade line, hike up their wings and take off running not stopping till they get to the other shaded area. It's like watching people walk on hot coals.
Even though we have fans and ice bottles available, we had a rabbit die yesterday. The youngest was heart broken because she works so hard to keep everything cool. She called me crying and the only thing I could say was, it was not her fault. So with a heavy heart I oked the transport of all the rabbits into the house.
I told them to make sure the cage had a bottom and it is to be cleaned every day. We will see how long it lasts.
Now I have goats and rabbits both in the house. I have one of these bottle babies spoken for and I still need to find a home for the other one. (hint, hint) I will even give you some milk and a bottle to start you off with.
Please keep my middle daughter in your thoughts and prayers. She has to go see a cardiologist on the 15th and we are scared to death. I told her not to worry, I'll do enough for the both of us.
