Wow! Amazing coops and coops in progress everyone. We ended up kicking the chicks outside yesterday. They smell up the place way to fast when there is that many.

Mikey: I'll be going to the Market on the Move in Chandler as well.  Maybe I'll see you there!  I'm going to try to get there around 7:30, so that I don't have to wait in line as long.

 

Turkeybreeder: I got a ton of cabbages there last week, so I think it just depends.  They do seem to have a lot of tomatoes, which is fine with me, since I love tomatoes.   My chickens also love tomatoes, but I just give them the scraps.

Some folks are just like that I guess,

This is me having no clue.  The GSL did calm down a bit though...

Cool.  I don't know if we'll be there by 7:30 - sleep in time is at a premium!

Kev,
let's hope I have that extra pullet for you, but she will come with a roo! It was seriously driving me crazy so I went back and got every last one.

SherrieT,
out of 11 basque, only 1 has yellow legs and I think it is a pullet. The rest look slate. The colors are all over the place.

Any one on the east side interested in trading labor for meat?

 

A co-worker offered me 7 roos for freezer camp, I'll trade roos for processing...

Something just occurred to me. Do you think Mothra (my aggressive 2 day old EE) is just being protective over her (his?) "flock"? Think maybe she was just trying to defend the rest of the chicks and poults she is brooded with? Because Mothra is peaceful with the other chicks and poults in her brooder. Or perhaps Mothra is just aggressive and dominant by nature? Hmmmm.... I still have so much to learn about chickens.

Wow Fuzzybird, that chick has some bump on its head! ep.gif
