(Moon phase is Waxing Crescent; February’s “Snow Moon” rises fullest on 16th.)
I’m to help open the store today so this will be quick.
Yesterday, my first day as the store’s “chicken lady” went well. I was alone for an hour before the store opened and remembered how to clean brooders and care for chicks from my one day of being trained.
I enjoyed a new role that makes it okay to move around in a larger area. Part of my job now is assisting our Animal Health Specialist. That lets me walk isles, observe shelves, and rearrange items moved around by customers. I chatted with people curious about chickens, cared for our chicks, and straightened shelved stock.
Back home, my petite Pepita chick working hard to get around in leg braces just couldn’t make it. Losing her was heartbreaking, but I’d try again. She taught me more about infant birds.
Now, I must hurry to get dressed and go feed large animals. On my next day off, I’ll open a gate and let my new turkeys and chickens integrate with the larger flock. I’m hoping for success.
Dear Friends: The inspirations for new events are our hopes for success. Diana
