Hi All,

 

Jodi... Young roos a clumsy...he's figure it out. Just make sure the girls have a place they can get away if they need to.

 

DrH... Yep It's been a couple o' days since I set mine, and still nothing!barnie.gifGuess time goes real slow when your hatching! hu.gif Jack sure looks interesting, should be quite handsome when he grows up!

 

mxm... Good progress on the tractor... how are you going to move it around?

 

Bl4... No cooking with the oats? They just soften in the yogurt?

 

mazo... SOMEONE on this thread MIGHT have a Rooster or 2 or 3 or 5 you could have. LOL lau.gifgig.gifI have 8 myself up for grabs! Just have to figure out how to get them to you!

 

Have to brag about supper tonight! I made the PERFECT 1/2 turkey on the grill!!! droolin.gifyesss.gifdroolin.gif It was golden and crispy on the outside, very moist and tender on the inside. Easy to pull off the bone without falling apart. It was seasoned perfect with just the right smokiness! Perfect! I sure hope the next one turns out that good! Home canned sweet potatoes, corn and crescent rolls to go with YUM! droolin.gif

 

My wayward guinea came home!

 

Yesterday I cleaned Storkey's brooder box. This afternoon when I looked she had pushed allot of the straw out (probably trying to go deeper but it spread instead) 6 of the 10 eggs got pushed out too. sad.png I fixed the nest and made it so it shouldn't spread, and put the eggs back. I hope they weren't out too long. She seemed OK setting on them again. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

 

FT.... OK, it's after Fools day.... what's the secret/news???

 

Night All! (Maybe)

Good Morning Everyone! Pretty neat rollin thunder early this morning. Cind glad your g came home! Supper sounded great! You'll never get it to come out that good again. lol.png Yup I love Jack's coloration. The reason I was thinking part Pheonix is the long down turned tail feathers. 2 HUGE hawks flew over as I was holding him givin him tension [my word for attention]and he came unglued. I held him tighter and talked him down. Hoping it dries up quickly this morning so I can start re-fencing the garden. That stretch of warm weather has sure thrown off my internal clock. I have to keep reminding myself it's only April. Have been wanting to bring the wood in from out back and put it in the shed but that would bury the drier stuff. Maybe while it's drying off today I'll clean up a new spot with the tractor for makin wood. I like to have a southern exposure for the pile. Ticks are already bad [not in the yard] and this rain will really get em going. Think I'll be takin the new mower out for a spin soon too. While man shopping yesterday I picked out a new belt had to put it back and go one size longer. roll.png I need to start makin wood very SOON! barnie.gifRobins and Flycatchers are buildin nests! I gotta go.

Can't scratch the itch inside of my head, even though there's plenty of room for my hand.

@ Cind; yeah they soften right up! They are a little chewy but not crunchy at all! I had my DH tell me it smells weird... roll.png

 

Dr.H did you have any hail this AM? Woke me right up! The sound of hail dinging off the windows..... not too much lightning/thunder though.

 

Frenchie, where are you???? Did you make it home??

 

BigFam, you just have to change your approach.... do more research and explain how much money they will save you since they will be making food too. wink.png Instant lawnmowers.....  what does he think you need for that beautiful farm? Just let it sit and rot with no critters on it? (Well, besides chickens.)

So I thought I would share some pics of the spoiled waterfowl at my house....

 

Eggshells anyone? I suppose checkers is eating them for feather development, but the girls were acting like I had thrown out minnows!

And now, time for a little dip in the pool.... That's Maggie by the step, and then Jules (all black), Checkers, and finally Taffy.

I better get moving... still have to have a 2nd cuppa.

we bake and grind up the eggshells and feed them back to the chickens.  I'd heard you should do it that way so they don't recognize the egg and start trying to eat their own eggs.
