Hawk! Hawk!

This is what a hawk warning sounds like. Note the higher inflection at the end!

An attempt at crowing

One of the second batch of 2017 chicks is a rooster. They're only two and a half months old! I'm amazed to see him calling so soon. Though, it is more of a practice run at crowing. It's just very endearing how hard he tries. I wish I could keep a rooster. But, this is the city.

The good news is we have two farms he can go to.

Enjoy his efforts!

Down one more. Lost another!

It's a bad year for chicks on the McNeal city farm.

Barb and Donna were out freeranging with the flock. We went to herd them in and only Donna came back. :-(

We have found no sign of Barb. Her head was healing up nicely, too, and they were beginning to trust me.

Luckily, Donna has become part of the greater flock. She let herself into the coop one evening and it made my heart go out to her. It must be so hard and yet she did it! That a girl! #donnarocks
