Well I keep trying to answer posts and get called away for this or that and never get it finished. Sharol the birds are shaping up very well. Anytime you want to get rid of that mottle I'm your girl. I lost my hen that looked more like her and I haven't grown any chicks up to replace her. I really need to pick a few chicks for myself for breeders and just keep them separate instead of letting people buy them. It's so hard to decide which ones are going to be good breeders before they have grown. My current mottled rooster only had a couple of spots on him when he was young. He's just a little over a year now and he gets more and more. I am sure the jubilee roo will develop more spots as well although he looks really good for his age. He's got a lot more growing to do.
@Dani4Hedgies, all those orpingtons are 100% English. Just sayin so you weren't confused.
I had a very busy day yesterday and was gone all afternoon. So I am way behind today. My fencer is on his way so I am going to be busy once again today. But Yay!!! I don't mind a bit to get this done. I am once again very unhappy with human beings. I keep being reminded why I prefer to stay out here in the country and raise animals instead of living in town surrounded by people. Yesterday I had a cart thing completely full of heavy groceries, potatoes etc. I had tried to lift it up to put it in the back of my car and the bin attached to the carrier slipped and flipped me so I landed hard on the pavement. There was a guy standing not 15 feet from me in the parking lot and he just stood there and stared then went about his business. I was really banged up and in pain. If I ever saw someone do something like that I would run over to them and help them up and make sure they were okay. I can't believe people care so little. I really had trouble getting up after that. My family worries about me a lot and are constantly asking me to carry my cell phone outside because I do fall an awful lot. But every time I do it falls out of a pocket or something and I have to end up calling it to find it. I don't have a carrier that will work for this phone and they are hard to get out of a carrier to use anyway.
If any of you have a suggestion that would help me keep my phone on myself without danger of it getting wet or falling out of a pocket I am listening.
I got a good chuckle this morning. I saw Brittany with Yeti (my puppy) and she was trying to train him, as an older LGD dog will. The geese were in the front yard and a gander jumped on a goose to breed her. Brittany ran over to them and took her paw and knocked the gander off the goose. Anything to protect her charges. It was hilarious.
