Now I've got tiny blisters between my fingers. Every time I wash my hands, the warm water makes the bumps itch uncontrollably. If you have sensitive skin, you should wear gloves or use a stick! Tomorrow I will not be sticking my hands in the water unless I'm wearing gloves.
Today the older shelved litter has graduated to life in the coop. They are now eating pellet food and drinking water on their own, and since we can no longer contain them in the kitchen (Tikal discovered how to go up the stairs), it was time to reintroduce them to the herd. Since Lady Mo is gone, we have an open space for an additional doe, so if Babylon doesn't find a home in the near future, she may just stay back to replace Lady Mo. It would be easier than trying to introduce another adult doe into the group.
As of initial introduction to the coop, Babylon and Machu Picchu explored the coop, and Tikal instead went out the door, figured out how to climb up the brick step, and out to the yard. Great! Now I know he can reach the water dish. Unfortunately, this also means that he can walk right through the big cage bars. So he came back in the house until bed time. Tomorrow we will be adding chicken wire to the bottom portion of the fence to prevent escaping. Then I will be adding a small wire ramp behind the door to help the other two bunnies get out of the big step in area so they can have access to the heated water bowl too.
