That is weird. Maybe that part of the system is down right now. I do know I've had a couple that weren't accepted if they were too large a file. Are you converting them to JPG before you try to post them?

I hope everyone is okay this morning and hasn't blown away. We had quite the wind storm yesterday and got 0.43" of much-needed rain! II sent my hubby out to take care of a small branch that was resting on our garden shed (originally not far above the shed). Come to find out, the branch had broken in 2 places and I was seeing the smaller of the two. Figures! Here's a pic of the bigger of the two breaks on that limb. This was only one of multiple branches down. We lost the tops out of a couple of trees (one cedar and one mulberry) and numerous other branches. Guesstimated wind gusts of 80mph.
I have to laugh at .43 inches. If this keeps up I'm afraid our totals will be more like 43.00 inches. Exaggeration of course, but if the rain doesn't stop soon it isn't going to matter what the total rain fall is. Too much is way too much.
Are you using a phone, tablet, or computer? What operating system?
@chicken danz you are right about the hatches. This is ridicuous. I have a 17 wk old Jubilee Orpington, 2 3 week old Jubilee orpingtons, 2 that hatched under my White orp, and 2 more from the incubator. SO I have 7 of them but not enough at any single age for anyone to be interested in buying them. The 17 week old is clearly female, I think I have a pair in the 3 week old, and the other 4 are a crapshoot.
These girls need to stop being broody.
Oh, I forgot about Copper and Graycie whose chicks are due next week (all English Orpington of various hues). Sigh. Some of these birds need to go.
Oh, and I forgot about those adorable Campines. They are delightful, they flock together everywhere. I need to sell a trio or a quad of them, too.
We have gotten about 4" of rain total in this mess, but it has all stayed on top of the ground because the ground is pretty much saturated. The birds are all wading around enjoying the goodies that come to the surface. The dogs hate going out in the rain, mutter grumble. 40 days and 40 nights are ENOUGH.
While you guys are complaining about too much, we could still use more. We're nowhere near the "too much"mark.
I love the positive spin. I think that is a common thread on here. Making the best of difficult situations.
