We have a veritable maternity ward here at the house in Santa Ana! We have one gallina (hen) who has seven little pollitos (chicks) following her around and another with eight! Just this morning, one of the ducks introduced us to her four patitos! AND we have 8 others on nests!! Anyone know a good midwife???
God has his timing down perfectly....as usual. Yesterday Ismael and Orfe traveled to Poptun for a conference with Hanssel's teachers. This was a meeting held for the parents of those who graduate this year from their specialty school. So, Peter and I were at the house by ourselves. Ten minutes after Ismael, Orfe and Hanssel arrived home, Taker, the huge German shepherd, decided to slip his rope. Now mind you, Taker is a vicious dog with strangers. Peter and I have not yet established ourselves as friends with Taker. With a yard FULL of chickens in all stages, Taker would have had a FEAST of either chickens or gringos (white foreigners) or both if the family had not returned home! Fortunately, Hanssel and Ismael were able to get Taker into the back garden area before he got a good meal! Sorry, Taker! Maybe next time!
