PALM SUNDAY EGG HUNT
After we ate I went over to Aa's and stayed with the kids while they napped so that Aa could go pick up 6 goats he bought. He bought a mama and 2 babies, a teenage nanny goat and 2 bucks. They are really nice goats and the babies are sooooo cute !!!
I came home and hubbie helped me fix a separate pen for the red rooster I have and a hen friend for him.
Then I headed up to church to go to the Easter egg hunt with EL and BB. They had a puppet show first that the kids enjoyed and then it was on to the lawn and all the eggs.
The sun was really warm and my arms are actually sunburned a little tonight from being outside all afternoon with short sleeves on.
I came home to more chicken moving as I broke the only egg the little black Silkie had under her that didn't feel like it had a chick in it and when I broke it I was definitely right about that as it was just a stinky powdery rotten egg !!! After turning her back out into the lot with the other Silkies I moved the red Silkie who only hatched 1 Silkie chick out of the dozen eggs she went through the really cold nights with into that smaller box. In the big box where she had been I put up a divider that hubbie made last year and put two more white setters in there with 6 eggs each under them. That means I now have 4 hens setting on eggs . Maybe my setting luck will change as this has not been a good year for hatching chicks so far with the up and down temperatures.
I was out until after dark doing all this moving and then came inside to work on the computer a bit to search for the best deal on a double oven. I guess tomorrow I will see if Lowes will meet Sears deal on an oven. I really don't want to deal with Sears again because of the lousy service they give on their products so hopefully Lowes will match the price.
Thankful for this Palm Sunday and for the love of our precious Lord who set in motion the sacrifice of His one and only Son on this day to save man kind from all our sins and give us a pathway for eternal salvation.
God Bless and Good Night
