Stacy, Mucinex loosens the gunk in your chest and makes it easier to cough up, it is not a cough suppressant but it really makes you more comfortable and reduces the need to cough as much. I also highly recommend the whiskey (if you don't need to work, drive or operate heavy machinery).
Well I got a call from Sandhill Preservation last night - they are sending me the rose-combed colored Dorkings I ordered early this spring, as well as a few regular combed ones and a bunch of Sumatras . I am REALLY overrun with chicks now! So I have the following offer to any BYCers that would like some nice chicks
Trio of bantam Lavender Ameraucanas - 2 hens and a sweet little roo - 1 year old
4 Red dorkings (shipped by Sandhill with the earlier order) - 6 weeks old - looks like there are both pullets and cockerels.
Norwegian Jaerhons - 6 weeks old - I would prefer to sell these as trios also, as they are very rare and it would be nice to see someone take them for breeding. They lay a large off-white egg, and are excellent foragers.
Bunch of Sumatras, I think black but not sure, which I never asked for and don't want - free!! just-hatched chicks
I am traveling to Lansing next week on Friday, and on to Indiana saturday am, so if anyone is interested and would like to meet me along the way I will be happy to transport them. PM me if you are interested.
I should also have Silkies for Chickenstock, eggs are buff, partridge, white, black, BBS and something else I don't remember now.
