|It fit finally!|
|Backsplash in place and drying.|
Tragedy has struck again, another chicken died. Out of the blue and with no signs and symptoms of illness. I will be calling the county extension agency tomorrow to see if they want to test the bird or if it just needs to be disposed. Of course it had to be a hen and not one of the two roosters. It was one of my buff orpington babies that just started laying.
The gerbil is still making his presence known in the house even in death. He fell down into one of the walls near the dining room and laundry room. We are not sure which section of wall he is in nor how far down the wall his corpse is located. He is stinking the place up. We have a window open and the odor absorber open. Luckily, I don't think he can stink forever. It is just not worth the effort to cut open every wall until I find it. That sounds like a nightmare. Eventually, he will become a mummy and the smell will go away.
