DrH... Yep we do want it and WILL get it one way or another,,, just having transport issues
amber... what kind of incubator is that?
raim.... old steps can be good or bad... we lived in a very old house that was built with hand split beams. The stairs were so old and worn that they had groves from foot wear. Any knots in the wood were raised.... but, not a crack in 'em and a grown man could jump down 'em!
On the other hand... the house where I grew up which was probably 60 to 80 years newer(1910 or so) we had to replace the steps... like a step at a time.

My two wellies dont like my marans much would like to separate them and get 2 more marans maybe.
Hehehehe.... got ya! Take it you are not the "handy" type or you would be asking for plans That's OK. We'll help you out. I see CC already hit CL for you! LOL I agree though, if you have barn space use it!
Fun... Pretty roos....Want some more? LOL Some of us seem to be acquiring a collection!
MLH.... Hummm that powdered egg thing dose look interesting.... thought why do I need powdered eggs when I got hens... but I see they last 5 to 10 years!I was also thinking (if I found an easy way to separate eggs) that doing egg whites might be cool for all the angle food cakes I make. I never considered store bought eggs as real eggs, When I was a kid and heard the term "egg factory" I pictured them being pumped out in some sort of egg shaped mold. Actually, maybe I like that picture better than the "egg factory" hens. Those poor girls!
Ghost...glad the last chick is OK! At least you held off until the last minuet.
Well, a couple of days ago there was an add on CL for 3 male guineas. I called the guy today thinking the 3 that have been showing up here were his. I was going to offer him $15 for the 3 (he wanted $15 ea) with the thought that they seemed to be joining my flock anyway. Well, it turns out they weren't his. He lives on the other side of town! We talked for almost an hour! (geez... sound like FT! LOL) Anyway, in the conversation we were talking about what birds we had etc. A couple of hours later he called and said he talked to a friend who just lost his Ameraucana Roo and wanted to know if I would sell one of mine! He might also be interested in on of the other boys! ***JIM*** This would be one of the ones I got from you.... How much should I ask for him?
One of my hens (Sparkles... a 12 year old girl named her) is going to have something to cackle about in the morning.... "I had the strangest dream... that woman with food came in and took me off the roost. I struggled a little but it was dark, except for a strange ball of light that kept moving! Then I was tipped upside down and she poked around in my butt! Then there was a cold wet feeling in my but! Then I was back on the roost where I started!.Very strange!" LOL... hopefully she will lay some blue streaked eggs the next few days! She is a pretty little hen and I think her and Prettyboy would make beautiful babies! I hope she's laying!
Well, bed time! Night All!
