I don't know if you get the same kind of bluebirds we do here. I haven't saw any yet this year. We have a rather large bunch of them thanks to a lot of folks who started putting out those birdhouses on their pasture fence posts. Not so many years back they were pretty rare in this area.

Well this morning I did see our bluebirds. :) A group of about eight of them. With the strong winds we are having today, they may end up being blowed all the way down to Texas. :D

I live in the Denver metro area! I'm a fairly new tortoise owner! My Rosie (red foot) was left to us by a neighbor who told me she was a Russian (prob was not taken care of properly)...after some research I determined she was actually a red foot! I am doing whatever I can to make her as happy as I can :)

Maybe better she was thought a Russian and cared for that way, then being a Russian cared for as a redfooted.

No power outage for us in Evergreen. But we did get 13 and 1/2 inches of snow!!! All my torts and boxies are indoors still so no issues with them. But my hens were not very happy. ❄ We have learned some lessons about our coop this winter that we'll new to change this summer for sure!

Did the snow's weight break down their yard fencing? We had that happen one year even though I thought the mesh was big enough for most of the snow to go through.

No it didn't, they are in a full enclosure due to the predators we have in the foothills/mountains. We just need to adjust everything so they have much more protected space. Evergreen has much much more snow than Fort Collins. So they need to get a larger cabin for the days that they are snowed in ❄❄❄

Anyone in Colorado interested in a greek tortoise? We live in Parker and my daughter is moving out...and not taking her tortoise. We've had her for almost 2 years. I would really like her to go to a good home...hopefully with a buddy. She is alone in a small enclosure. Please reply or call me @ 817-253-6401 (old Texas #...am in Colorado).

^ Has also been placed on the adoption section for those interested. Too bad I am not in CO (I am NE) or that hubby isn't driving through the area currently either or I would offer to help out.

I meant to post it was taken down late last night. It was a red foot for $100. Living on pine shavings in a small aquarium, but he let it run around the house most days so it really wasn't in his cage much :/ I hope he found a good home. My inn is so full and we are leaving the country soon.

Out of country? Where are you going to?

Just on vacation for two weeks to Paris and Iceland. I would just feel terrible for my house sitter. I have already added three chicks she wasn't aware of. And then to add a another tortoise in another cage (for quarantine) would just be mean
