I sent the kids outside. It wasn't 10 minutes that they were back inside and I found myself washing a rooster's foot to tend to a small bleeding cut. I don't find this rooster a nice rooster, but somehow Audra can just go scoop it up and bring him on adventures. She absolutely loves taking care of all our animals, so this tiny cut was an immediate emergency she insisted on attending to. He's all doctored up thanks to Audra. Anna-Kate has her favorite, a sweet little silkie that she totes around. Nothing wrong with the silkie, she was just long for the ride. Some of their best friends are chickens.
