Jerryse where did the tail on that rooster come from? It appears to be from a hen feathering gene?
Klop, I would never want to know what the bottom line is on my hobby endeavors. You are to be commended for you goal to make it break even. Pigs can be very profitable if managed properly.
In my first professional career I ended up as a tax specialist working for one of the largest CPA firms in the U.S. I got out after 10+ years into a career which was much more enjoyable to me. It is a real pain to do my wife's business reports and taxes.
Holm, my wife hates snakes. My youngest son was a rather adventurous lad and was afraid of nothing not even his mother. When he was about 7 or 8 my wife came home from somewhere and saw this five gallon bucket on the sidewalk with a piece of plywood on top. Curiosity took over and she removed the plywood cover only to find about ten snakes in the bucket. She was not happy!
Later that summer she goes into my sons room and discovers that the empty aquarium has been converted into a home for a pet Garter snake. That caused all kinds of excitement!!
Ralphie, seems like you are right on top of it with those Chanteclers.
