All is well in the coop this morning!!!!
Thanks for all the concern in this trying time!
It took me forever to fall asleep last night so
I ended up sleeping in a little this morning.
The first thing I heard upon waking was Mr Big
crowing and it was coming from the barn!
So I knew at least he made it thru the night.
I can look out my bedroom window and see a
little bit of the inside of the barn
and I spotted Becky.
She is the white guinea,
the boss of the farm,
as shown in my header!
She is a fraidy cat too so I am sure
she was hiding somewhere and that was the only time that she was quiet too!!
I had no choice but to garb up and brave the wild winter winds and knee deep snow
and take that treacherous hike down the hill to the barn to see if Carrie was alive.
This is no exaggeration either.
The barn is close enough for me to throw a rock from my house and hit the backside of the barn.
It is straight downhill though.
That hill can be deadly!
I can't even begin to tell you how many times I have fell going down that hill
and slid feet first into the door!!
Most of the time I got my start up next to the house and slid all the way in!!!
However, this morning the trip was for a good cause.
I needed to check on my precious Carrie.
Maybe it was just a lovers quarrel!!
There were a lot of black feathers in the floor
so I feel there was some sort of commotion in the barn last night
that woke him up from his roost and ran him outside.
I have a feeling we will be having possum stew this weekend!!
(jus kiddin on the stew part, we won't eat him .............)
Thanks again for worrying right along with me!!!
