Oh, Ang, I know the feeling! I bought 3 lav orp chicks and wouldn't ya know, all 3 are boys. I'm lloking for a good home for one of them too. I'm doing like the doc & heading nort this weekend, hopefully, so maybe I'll be swinging by FT's place. She can always use a few more roos.
Cind, I am so glad you've got water again! I can hardly imagine what that's like for so long. Especially with all the critters and the heat! It makes me think I better stock up, just in case. Ya never know.
DrH, we still haven't had to mow yet, but if we get a little more rain, we just might. Mom said today that her grass is like straw, but the weeds in the cracks in her alley are 2 feet tall & green as can be. I think I'll take the dead grass. And as for the comment about Squinty, give her some time: she'll adapt & be able to drive just fine! What's wrong with one-eyed drivers, anyway? Where is your camper again? And what is a buff roast, anyway????
Amy, thanks for posting DrHs pickle recipe! Copy & paste is my best friend! And I'm so sorry to hear about your hen & chicks.
Vicki, I sure hope the arm is feeling better.
Apyl, I think H&R raises brown leghorns, but they might be banties? Where has Cheryl been lately, anyway?
I couldn't agree with you more, Bigz. Nothing better than the feeling of sharing the garden bounty with others. I just wish mother nature felt more generous down here this year. Glad you can read those eye bills too.
Yep, the thunder boomers woke me up this AM too, a few times. Once was right as DH was heading off to work. My poor sweetie. Had another downpour right before I was going to head out to release the poultry. Can't say I was mad. It's been so long since we've seen any moisture down here. As someone else mentioned, some of the chickens have never heard thunder or rain. Yikes!
Bl4, she's prolly waiting for me so she can rip me a new one for not answering her SOS. Here we go!
