Thinking on Your Feet

A small example of adapting to challenges here that I wanted to share with you-

A few days ago, the older boys working in the egg project noticed that several of the chickens were sick. After contacting a local veterinarian, they were told to separate the sick chickens and change the sawdust bedding. Here they are working on it:

Without other coops or pens available, they improvised and overcame - Sammy here is constructing an enclosed cage within the coop out of materials they had on hand.

The coop has been swept, and the boys started administering antibiotics recommended by the vet. We're hoping that'll take care of it, but if not it's good knowing these guys have the initiative to identify the problem and the drive to resolve it.
