I love teas. I particularly like green teas and teas infused with flavors. I like celestial seasonings the best I think. Chamomile tea is my go to for relaxing. I love one called candy cane lane that is a peppermint that is usually available in stores at Christmas but I order it off their website several boxes at a time. There's all kinds of different spicy teas I like. I don't care for the fruity ones much. I like trying the different blends and types but I am definitely enjoy the green teas the most. I would never consider putting milk or sugar in tea. I only have one tea pot which was a gfit from Seramaslovers. I normally use an electric water pot that heats the water really fast and then brew in the cup.
I'm a big fan of coffees too. I like to try out the rare and unusual. I subscribed to the limited editions that Gevalia has for years up until about 6 months ago. I always buy beans and grind fresh when I am drinking special coffees. My normal morning coffee is just coffee. Nothing special. And again I am not a fan of flavored coffees other than cinnamon flavored ones.
Tweety what did you cover the top of your inner kennel with? It looks good.
Well after DH got home last night we were discussing the chicks dying. They had been in that little brooder a couple days without problems. I realized though that I had had the windows open because it had been so warm and I shut them night before last with the cooler weather coming in. I think having air movement before had kept the fumes from bothering the chicks. I am so overcrowded right now. I've got to make some emergency provisions for birds. I have some kennels available but I don't have housing I can use. I normally just move the larger birds to the garage but with the weather cooling that won't work.
I also have to get something done for these geese at least temporarily. Even in this huge kennel it is just too much. Time to get them outside! They are adorable but my house wreaks and they are so messy!!! Even worse than ducks.
Hawkeye I think you just need to put those eggs in the incubator and let 'em cook. I rarely bother mine. Just add water for humidity and let em go, unless you are out of room.
The birds I got from Karen are great. They are all very easy going. It's obvious they have gotten plenty of attention.
My newest incubator isn't holding the temperature as steady as my older ones. Not sure what the problem is. It had only been used once and was like brand new. I sure don't want to have to replace the electronic thermostat. They are really expensive. It hasn't been ridiculous but my other GQF's are dead on all the time, especially the newest one with the electronic controls.
So I am seriously planning to downsize. I have a bunch of extra bantam polish roos I need to re-home. I normally get a nice price for these but I would just give them to any of you guys on here if you are interested. Take one or all. I will probably only keep one or two for breeding. I can't spare the females right now but will surely hatch some soon I don't kill in the brooder.
I am also planning to get rid of most of my Seramas. I am keeping a few just to continue trying to breed some particular size and colors and for a novelty, but the rest I plan to sell. I have a guy in Oklahoma interested in a few, thanks to Renee, but I have lots and lots of breeding stock.
Sure wish my life would slow down a little! I guess as long as I can sit here and drink my coffee for a while in the morning all is still under control.
