Had a few errands to run this afternoon..just to the post office and to the bank...
then afterwards I took daughter to the feed and seed supply store...
as the baby bantam chicks we got several weeks ago were definitely starting to look and act like roosters.
So the feed store owner allowed my daughter to swap them out for 2 hen chicks that they just gotten in today that were sexed..the males were marked with green dots on the head and females were unmarked..
They had a batch of Aracaunas in today..so daughter got 2 aracaunas to replace the bantams ..and this time they are hens.
Got "Mr. Collin" a new collar while I was there..he has started to outgrow the small puppy collar I bought him when I first got him.
Suits him cause he thinks he's big stuff..ha.
He has been doing well with his training..he has the "sit" command down pat.
I just need to find a way to keep him from jumping up on me..any hints in this department would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to work with him on the "come" command..he seems to want to do it, but when he gets to me he wants to leap up..as in a "here I am catch me" type thing. So this aspect is a bit challenging. He doesn't seem to want to do a "stay" command yet though.
He does have a bit of the "lay" command down too..as that is pretty easy right along with the "sit" command.
He does well on the leash.. as soon as I got him I started him on a leash..the only thing is he doesn't know the "heel" command..he tends to want to pull ahead on walks.
So..at 4 1/2 months he still needs more training.
He's very smart though and definitely shows a willingness to please.
We are nearing the end of the school year...and as such my 2 home schooled children have their year end evaluations/portfolio reviews coming up..in fact next week..so I have been getting together all of tht material this week.
It's really not that difficult. Just time consuming. As the portfolios showcase examples of the students work from every month of the school year.
I do admit I'm just as bad as the kids when it is time for school to be out... I'm more than ready.
We certainly look forward to the break just as much as public school educated children....and hey..teachers/moms need a break too. :0)
So..what have you all been up to?
I always love hearing from you all.
Thanks for stopping by!
