Duck said she thought for sure spring was here. Why, I've got a nest in the grass by the pond, she said. Got a couple of eggs there too!
The guineas four, wondered why duck was concerned about snow. What is snow anyway, asked one of the four.
Nothing to worry yourselves about, spoke the Rooster, except it gets pretty darn cold. Why, see the black on my comb...cold weather. Yep, it happened back in January, that night the temperature dropped to 9 degrees. I'll never forget it. Like to have froze to death that night.
You see fellows, mom's worried that the snow and freezing temperatures will kill all those tender leaves the plants put out during February.
What's this? A community meeting? Not to worry bunnies. Hay is on my list! Your little feet will stay warm.
By the way friends, have I shown you the remodeled bunny condos? Lowes Home Improvements had the black metal fence sections, $24.95 for a set of two. The 10' x 10' lot is now sectioned into three pens. I wired one section of each set to the fence so it swings open and shut...like a door. We love it!
Sweet Penny, looking a little forlorn, is getting special attention these days. You see, a few weeks ago, she gave birth to one baby bunny, that died. The baby seemed unusually large.
Anyhow, Penny had pulled out lots of her fur to make the nest soft. She is doing better now and eating lots of healthy foods. Walmart carries a new bunny food called "Menu". The main ingredient is Timothy hay. The bunnies love it!
home again, home again, with the bale of hay...
Doesn't the pen look warm and cozy with the sun warming the soft hay? Why I could cuddle up with little Penny and take a nap.
why do I love hay so much?
if I could have anything I wanted, anything my heart desired, right now, I would ask for a big red barn. A red barn with a hay loft full of fresh, sweet smelling hay and have that barn placed right here on our little piece of property.
Better finish up here. Poppy and Eli are both asleep, but it is time for Eli's walk...he never lets us forget that either...rain or shine!
Thank you, my friends.
