This last time though...it's a doozie. I find out the 4 wheel drive doesn't work as I'm trying to drive up my driveway in 14" of snow. It doesn't work well. Because, well, the driveway is UP the side of a hill!!!!!! Great time to find out it doesn't work. So I park my car...which decides to slip into the ditch as I step out of it into the snow. A few days later, I finally make it up most of the way up the driveway (WOOHOO!). I park her and put the E-brake on. Go inside. An hour later and (Carlita) my car has slid 45 feet down the drive way into a snow bank. Lovely.
Take it in the next week. They say it's a sensor and the tires are bald. Now come on. The TIRES are causing the 4WD to not engage? Yeah. Sounds like a PERFECTLY plausible excuse. NOT. So we get the sensor fixed and put on a whole new set of tires. I'm so stoked! Get it picked up, looking all pretty...
Drive her home and now she pulls to one side. That's ok, we knew she was probably out of alignment. I put her into 4WD to get her up the driveway and guess what. Surprise, surprise. New tires DON'T fix a broken 4WD. Know what does? FIXING THE 4WD!!!!!!! So we try again, thinking I'm just an idiot and don't know how to work it, hubby gets into the driver's seat. I walk up to the house in the 40+ mph winds we apparently needed so desperately and watch hubby try. He makes it most of the way up the driveway and when he needed 4WD the most, what happens? Nothing in the rear kicks in. Only this AWFUL grinding noise that he "says" is snow hitting the undercarriage. I'm not a genius but that's almost as plausible as needing new tires to "fix" your 4WD. So he backs it down and leaves it at the neighbor's house. Ridiculous.
So I just called the Kia dealer...AGAIN to schedule another fix. At what point can you lemon a car?
What a day for Rants! Let it out.. Let it out!!

And some wine.
Learned if you wear a kilt, "bazinga" t-shirt, and chicken hat, you get a lot of looks and comments.
I really want to go to this, maybe next year! Or if I can find one closer to this area! HAHA!! BAZINGA!!!

I think I am in love with Blarneys incubator. LOL!! Out of 24 I have 15 that are moving and viable, 3 I threw out to being non fertile and 6 are veining and not moving-so we will call them iffy eggs. I'm doing much better this hatch. I feel positive and my LED flashlight went through the darkest eggs. I feel like we are going to hatch out nicely this time. Keeping fingers crossed!

And I had to share my picture of my 1st-est EGG!! Thanks everyone! It was a lot of hard work and waiting!! My lovely Tully left it for me, she is an OEG so her eggs will always be on the small side. disappointed I have to toss it, since I had them medicated, but there will be many more I'm sure! Hoping my other girls we take lead!
1) It looks like they are pulling the feathers from my 1 Hen, Rosie, is that normal? Her tail has like 2 feathers left! poor thing.. So she is wings and a fluffy butt!
2) Since apparently one of my larger girls is actually a boy, He is not crowing, do I had to worry about him fertilizing the eggs of my 3 girls? And my BF mom says you can't eat an egg that has been fertilized, is that true?
Here it is, next to a store bought Large Egg, it is sooo stinking cute!
Had to take a pic of it in the nesting box of course!!
Tully is on the Far Right, my Only girl Laying and that is the Nesting box my BF made for them that she actually used!! TEHE
The White chicken in the back is the Roo,Styx, a white cohin, if anyone is interested, If not we may have a chicken dinner?
Also if anyone needs a nesting box, I can ask the BF to make more, perhaps for a trade? Send me a PM. I was thinking about what kind of Hens I would want, since I only have 3 at the moment. After some research on breeds I was thinking of trying 1 RIR, 1 Australorp, 2 Light Sussex and 2 Oprington. Or if you can recommend a good breeder to go to?
I hope everyone has a nice day!
