To answer your earlier question, my daughter got tired of me saying I did not want to do anything on Sunday since my hands would just throb, she bought me a pair of mittens and a bunch of hand warmers, I sleep in them on Saturday night. It really does help..
it is more because of the neighbors..we are closer than we would like to be obviously..we wouldn't HAVE ot keep rooster form crowing, BUT..you know how it goes...this is only our 2nd year back to the house and A LOT has changed, so..we would like to try to keep things as amicable as possible....just wondered if anyone has/had used this device before..if it really cuts the sound down..and as far as the hens crowing..
well, they do go "OFF" when sounding that "get that egg outta here" song...if we could keep the rooster UNDER that noise, that would be workable and I would be able to BREED!..see, this is MY end for all this okay....I want to BREED my own birds, so i may have what i want/need..when i want/need..I am totally sure you all here understand that little beast with-in...
That whole hand warmer thing sounds very nice...you should really look into a hand wax warmer..i am not foolin' Wing...had it in the salon and it is like magic, for all those with bad-arthritic hands/wrists...brought it into the house...sometimes it can be the only thing that gets the fingers open...it is so nice.

There was a torrential down pour of rain, it flooded the rat holes and poisoned the water, she lost all the birds in that coop.
LMP! Don't shoot the messenger? I had no idea that you were so biased against Silkies!
hahaha..see this is what i was afraid of., you like getting me into trouble?@!...that is not what i meant....i was one a thread...i think the marans ..not completely sure, but anyway...someone had stated that they have had Silkies for a long time and compared to the other breeds they had , well, the silkies were not the brightest bulbs...and a bunch of others agreed. I should have said.."don't shoot the repeater"....that is what i should have said..I have NOTHING against Slikies...omgosh..now i am gonna hafta go away for awhile just so people don't hurt me....hahhaha, you all know i am only joking anyway...what the heck do I know about silkies?! geesh, i am not against any bird.,....i have had my birds..wyandottes and Marans for only 2 years now..I am in NO WAY an expert in anything...but i do read quite a bit
I am So sorry to hear about the losses from your 4-H leader..that is truly awful!!
