Hey, Just saw on CL that there is a seminar in Wausau on the 27th with MLH hubby. MLH will you be there ?

 

Sure now I need to get home from my road trip and then take another one to Wausau !!!

 

Sounds like a good time. I might just have to go see what it's all about.

Nice morning all!  Glad to hear everyone enjoying the weather!

 

Does anyone know Ghostrider65(real name Kim) lives up around Green Bay area?  She comes through and post every once in awhile.  She was interested in getting some Wellies from us and the last I heard from her was begining of March here.  Hoping all is okay for her.  Sent her a PM but don't have her actual email address.

 

Just went through again and replaced zip tie bands on the chicks, we moved all the bantam light brown leghorns into one group now- we lost our oldest rooster- we think he came off the roost wrong and broke his leg-nothing we could do for him as to fix it.  So McNugget the oldest cockeral took over the group.

 

MLH- how is SG and baby?  Any more hatch out?

 

Candled half the eggs in the bator and removed the only Ameraucana egg- clear after 12 days and the 2 hens aren't laying so DS(6) has nothing in the way of chicks this year barnie.gif he asked if he can share DS(10)'s bantams.  DD told him she would share her chickens with him too.  hugs.gif

Back out to do some more chores- have a great day!

Our Crew: 2 human adults, 3 human kids, 1 Aussie,1 Cocker, Californian and French Angora rabbits,  Andalusians,  Welsummers,  Cuckoo Marans, IB and White Peafowl,

Game bird starter is good to feed. I feed to my chicks and they are fine on it. Costs the same as chick starter at the co op here.   If you want to cut the protein for the chicks then just add a bit of something to cut it down a bit. I havent had problems with it. Good luck with the duckling.  Do you think that Metzer farms is selling you bad ducks? hugs.gif  It seems so easy to raise chicks/ducks and then there is always that proverbial wrench that gets thrown in and something happens and it seems so mystifying.   Good Luck.  You poor thing.   Best wishes.

Feeling a sense of accomplishment

A good days work always feels good. When I went to Menards last fall I discovered barn paint is so much cheaper than regular paint.    Woo Hoo!

 

I havent got too much done because of a back problem, but I am slowly moving around and doing little things.  I am getting caught up on my reading. By the time I finish you guys will probably think, what the h8ll is she talking about. So 37 sec ago.  LOL

 

I have decided to keep my hens as I want to keep the bio security thing in place for other people, but any one who has already inquired to me  about them I am willing to offer you some hatching eggs for shipping costs.  I think Amyable you might want some and Maybe BFForme?   Just pm and let me know.  The true Ameraucana blue wheatons won't be pure till mid April. but they are easy to sex at 10 weeks the boys look like little eagles and the girls are cream colored. Thanks

 

Back to reading and I better go lay down and put a heat pack on my back.    :) Have a nice day everyone/.

Important questions! Need answers! ASAP!

Where can I get a bunch of pine chips/litter? Does Menards carry that?

Where could I get some netting to put over the run? Menards? Farm and Fleet? What's it even called?

Hubby is going to Menards or Farm and Fleet in Baraboo TODAY. He is working on the coop and trying to get it good enough for big girls (and boy) to move in.


Btw... I have asked these questions before with no response... Hence the attention grabbing tone... tongue.png

For netting over my run, I just use the tree netting for fruit trees. I bet somebody on here has come up with something better than that though.
