Oh she doesn't scare me, I'll take her down. She's probably just jealous of me.
Sarah....if you are having heart palpitations and noticing them more frequently please get it checked out. I'm no Dr. but heart issues run in my family on my father's side. The more a heart goes into irregular rhythms the harder it is for it go back to a normal one. The heart becomes conditioned to it and with each episode the irregularity will last longer....some cases resulting in having the heart shocked back into normal rhythm. I'm mot trying to scare you, just inform you....Do not play around with the heart.
I know, Im trying to get an appointment. I ate a banana earlier thinking maybe my potassium was messed up and it actually seemed to work. That and the 10 min stroll I took I think. Gonna go to sleep earlier than I usually tonight also.
I know the feeling! I dont think clean people currently live at my house either. I haven't had much time to!! :(
I had ordered water nipples last fall for my automatic waterer pipe line, but when I was making a nipple waterer out out of a Milk jug last week, I found that I had ordered a wrong kind of nipple! I had gotten a push in type, not a screw in type! How in the world am I suppose to install a push in nipple in a 1/2 inch pipe running 140 feet! So, instead of a milk jug waterer, I used an ice cream bucket waterer for my CX. But, I do not need 20 plus push in nipples. What I can do is make 5 gallon nipple waterers, and sell them. I am willing to make some, and take them to Chickenstock to sell. I love how dry the bedding stays, and the chicks always get clean water 100 percent of the time. No more cleaning out the bedding out of the chick's water!
Please pm me if intrerested.
There is a whole lot of nipples in this paragraph.
So, is a crossed beak hereditary? One of my chicks (3 weeks now) has a very slightly crossed beak, that didn't show up at hatch. I'm wondering if I should cull or not. It doesn't seem to have any problems eating - but will it get worse? Other than that she is really gorgeous - the perfect blue.
(She is a project cross, and is one of only two blues that have hatched, although I have 13 more eggs going into lock-down in 3 days)
