More Chicken-Capades

We re-caught the long tailed rooster yesterday and kept him in the mama barn all night and all day today and all night tonight and all day every day until we eat him. The short tailed rooster escaped us again tonight. He was roosting in a tree and we thought we could get him with the net (with my net I bet I can get that thing yet!) but he flew at the last second and ran off so fast even Ivory couldn't catch him. Who knew chickens were so fast? I'd put a chicken up against an Olympic track star anyday. 

There are new chicks. The tiny grey mama finally hatched out one funny looking little black and white chick, and two more eggs have tiny holes in them. By morning there should be three. 

But there were only four eggs today.
