Gizmo was adopted from a local animal shelter. She was in the process of weening her kittens when we adopted her. We picked her up a week after adopting her once she was done weening her kittens. She is now spayed but this young lady is still 100% motherly. Gizmo has even tried stealing chicks out of their brooder box and attempted to get them to nurse on her. We made it so she couldn’t get to the chicks in the brooders since. This done stop her from watching every new chick hatch. Don’t worry though because she loves her chicks and would never hurt one. She is just a very good and loving mommy.
Cat is a special needs silkie from Catdance lines. She was born with a deformed foot. Everything was done early on to try to correct it but treatment did not help. The breeder just wanted to find her a good home. Well she has gotten more than that. Cat is being diaper and house trained for starters. We are going to get her use to being handled by everyone and even take her with us places. This is all working up to turning her into a therapy chicken that we can take around to visit the residents of local senior centers and assisted living facilities. Cat will lead a full and pampered life and bring happiness to everyone she meets.
Well those who have kept up know that we lost our Turken cockerel a while back to a predator. This left us with out a boy for our Turken ladies. I was very excited when I found this beautiful guy for sale. He is not show quality, but he will make some very beautiful chicks with his coloring. He is currently quarantined so it will be a little while before he gets to meet his ladies. I think McLovin will be very McHappy here.
