Hi folks and welcome to all the new people!!! I think all this foul weather is keeping people inside and they are finding us!!!

 

Had a small hatch yesterday of 2 blue/2 black Ameraucana's. Have one more Bantam Cochin slowly working at it. Have a huge hatch scheduled for the 8th too.

 

Spring break is this week for the kids. We don't have anything planned and they are bored already!!!! How can that be?!?!? It will be a long week........

 

Got the big garden bed tilled last weekend and got some peas and lettuces planted. Had hoped to get more in this week but all I want to do is crawl under the covers!!!

 

I did book a trip to Cabo for the first weekend in June for DH and I to celebrate our 20th anniversary!!!! It cannot come fast enough!!!!

 

Had the CT Scan of my neck on Wednesday and am hoping to hear from my dr on Monday. Although funnily enough, the shoulder pain, has almost gone away!!! Not gone completely, but oh so much better than it was the week before when I finally went into the dr. Oh well.

 

Spent the morning at our Poultry Judging Contest for the Snohomish County 4-H Poultry Program. Found out some distressing news. Apparantly, King County is doing away with 4-H at the end of the 4-H year which is Sept 29th. As of now, if you have a King County address, those kids are unable to enroll in 4-H for next year. We are hoping and praying that the find a resolution in this and let the kids enroll in another county for next year. We have a huge 4-H club in Duvall that would just be gone, as well as a huge Homing Pigeon Club in Woodinville.

 

Anyway, that is about all that is new here! Hope everyone is doing ok. Have we heard from RonB lately? I PM'd with him a day or two after his surgery and he was already going stir crazy!!! Hope everyone is dong well!!!

And, no, this is not an early April fools! lol.png

Illia talked about plum bloom but I can remember which chickens she said would throw them. We do have 2 WM's from her. 

We also have a rumpless girl from CL that lays a chocolate egg so I suppose it could be her. It's a mystery!

Hope everybody is doing well. 

Ron B- Hope you are healing up fast!!!

With Colors Like That Who Needs Easter Eggs?

 

 

My BCM from CGG gives a really dark egg usually with a plum bloom like that. My BCM from zGoat gives us very beautiful, dark eggs with darker freckles all over them. All my egg buyers like the freckled eggs best. I like them both. Both my BCM's lay the largest eggs of all my birds, often so large they won't fit in the carton! My NH Red lays an egg so long the lid of the box won't close. When I need more birds, I am going to get more BCM's.

 

I love the Barnies too - their eggs are very smooth and glossy. They are rarely dirty, and clean up nicely. I love the blues from CL's Ameracaunas and every shade imaginable from my EE's.

Broody, what a gorgeous photo! Thanks for sharing. If you happen to get another plum egg that you don't plan to hatch or keep, I would love to buy it from you for my egg wreath project.

 

I also wanted to let you know that when we were at the Fort DeRussy museum last month DH and I told the people there about your dad's museum in Chehalis and recommended it as a great place for those interested in armor. I hope they get some visitors out of it. smile.png

CL:  Agree with you 100%.....hence the term "Shoot-Shovel-Shut up". We have to take care of our criters and by law we can protect livestock. Yes, there are some things that "protected" but I really doubt crows are.  Here starlings have a bounty on their head. 0.25 cents a piece. right now the starlings are trying to get in the squirrel hole in my willow tree....they are really pissing off the momma squirrel.

I was wondering the same, but I don't think it would work. with Plantar Fascitis we get holes and tears in the Fascia, and the is what causes the pain, well, that and the stretching of the fascia over the heel bone. With what he has going in the hands, thick cords of tendon or ligaments (muscle or bone connections?) form from the finger to the palm and pulle the finger down to the palm. It has to be cut, tron or stretched to release - kind of the opposite of plantar fasciitis.
