Sorry, ross... busy day today... went to livestock auction house @BYC910 told me about and sold off 20 birds, mostly roos... hung out with BYC and enjoyed watching them sell off junk... thank you, K!!
Btw, BYC asked me to post this... this is a cage made out of the casing of an old window air conditioner unit... it sold for 15 bucks!!
Can I ask how much you can sell a rooster for at auction?
Sorry to hear that SC. How are you doing today?
he worked yesterday so I had to clean it up!
I soaked as much as I could with towels and covers and washed them and repeated and repeated then finally sprayed with Fabreze but it still smells. oh and had the ceiling fans on and all other fans I could drag down on it too. Its a tan carpet so I may attempt a rental cleaner with a tad bleach before I rip it out, mom just said she heard of that at cabins so we can attempt it at a last resort.
kids stuff I dont care about, they have enough other stuff upstairs yet. the couch cushions are not washable or bleachable as its chocolate in color. it WAS brand new!!! wonder if homeowners would cover anything, I think I can at least call and talk to them Monday
We have had luck with using a shop vac to get most the water out and then renting some drying fans. You have to drape the carpet up on something like a buckets or back of chairs and let it dry all the way out.
Sorry to hear about the mixed up eggs Rossfam.
Final update on my hatch last week. 12 hatched out of 14 good eggs. One did expire already. It pipped externally and then dried out so we helped it out. It had curled feet. It died a day later. So we have 11 new chicks on the ground. I need to get a good pic of the group. 6 yellow, 5 Marans chick color (one died) and 1 grey chick patterned like a Marans. Interesting. And a few of them have feathered shanks.
Of the eggs left I did candle them and one had internally pipped. Sad too, you could see the scratches on the inside of the egg where it failed to pip externally. I'm just not going to look or help anymore. I'm going full blue from now on. It sucks to have the kids see the curled footed chicks scream and then finally die.
ETA: I think the two had issues from the temp drops.
