Btw, PSA: TSC in Boyertown PA cannot get rid of their silkies, they're selling them now for 50 cents. Birds are 2-4 weeks old
Hang in there! My favorite years were 8th and freshman highschool! Math never goes away unfortunately, pay attention because the teachers in highschool are going to help you out a lot more than your college professors so it helps to be as good as possible
Aw poo! If only I had the room, I old make the drive and have myself some baby silkies! On the wish list for later...

It gets better! I didn't like school much at all. I love learning now, but couldn't stand the schools I went too. I'm still so grateful to be done with school and so is my hubby. Just make sure you get your diploma. Life gets better!

Your broodies are amazing! I know my little poult isn't even from up, but spring fever has got me and I'm wishing one of my other girls will go broody soon. They are pretty reliable, shouldn't be long now...
Then I can bother the poultry pusher...
