Yep, chinchillas and rats, too. Oh, and by the way, geckos.

Letter from Birdland | My chicken can get a little squirrely

The light is coming back to Birdland, and so are the eggs. Most days, we still get only two from our three grown hens, but the days with no eggs or only one are getting fewer, and occasionally we find a third in the nest.

Letter from Birdland | Distracted writer gets a little assistance

Last night, Birdland was clear and only a little chilly. I know, because as I was lying awake at 2 a.m., deciding whether to keep trying to drift off, or give up and take my book into the living room for a while to read under a low light until I got sleepier, Cullen's throaty bark burst forth into the night.
