Frustrated today, can not get anything open without a struggle today.
Older people do not lose weight because they forget to eat... It has to be cause they give up trying to open things..
And I could not get ahold of CC, his phone went straight to voice mail.. gonna swing out that way later.
sorry to hear things are tough Wing, if it helps, you are not alone...
hey..let us know what's what with CC ..please..he works a lot! Hope everything is kosher....now you have me more than concerned..

My 14 week olds are driving me crazy! They absolutely LOVE the nest boxes and the fact that they have straw in them. They keep going in them and scratching and digging all around. Did I mention POOPING ALL THROUGH THEM! GAAAAAA!! I miss collecting eggs and getting nice clean ones. I'm at the point where the next time I clean out the straw, I'm just putting wood shavings in them so there's nothing fascinating about them anymore. Then, when they decide to hang out on the edges of them during the day (they think they're daytime roosts) and get poop in them, I can just scoop it out and onto the main coop floor and refill them.
As soon as there's a good day that's not TOO cold, since I don't handle the cold well, I'm going to go out and take the divider out of the middle of the seperation coop and move my extra roos over there. I have 5 for sure. A couple I'm not certain of yet. First warm day in March we should be processing. Time to start distancing myself a little more and free up some room in the main coop.
you have a good plan..you will be fine..helps when they don't get names..after all is said and done, they will look just like you went grocery shopping, but only so much better, for them & you.
