Please keep the rain down there CL!!!! Don't want any more!!! Gotta finish moving bark mulch. Blech.
Another note on the Corid/Amprollium discussion, there is a vaccination for Coccidiosis. I know McMurray offer's it for chicks. If you do the vaccine, DO NOT use medicated chick feed as it will cancel out the vaccine. So do one or the other but not both. And I agree with CL. Sulmet did NOTHING when we had a bad case in one batch of chicks last spring. They kept dying off on it. As soon as we started Corid, saw a turn around in the rest of the chicks immediately. Luckily, that was the only bad outbreak we ever had. Still makes me mad thinking about it! Hatched 15 out of 18 eggs shipped from PA!! Was so stoked about that hatch rate! Ended up losing 10 chicks to it when they were about 6-8 wks old? Can't remember their exact age. ANYWAY.
CL, glad you are enjoying the strawberries. We've got oodles of them. And just picked 8 cups of raspberries last night with much much more coming. The blueberry bushes are loaded also. Can't wait for them to ripen. They are my favorite! Looked over the apple trees last night also and was happy to see quite a few on them. More than last year anyway! Planted a large row of grapes last year, hoping to get a few off of them this year as well, but the dear seem to favor them.....Time to get out the canning supplies!
Zgoatlady, re: Cream Legbars......ok, didn't realize Anniemom AND Cflaming (or Flaming Chicken!!!) both had them as well, and Cflaming is right around the corner from me.....need to move my Orpingtons on and maybe get some next spring. Maybe....if I have room! They are next on my list for trying for sure though. Love that Crele coloring and being able to sex them at hatch AND colored eggs! Those of you that have them, what color are your eggs? Can we see pics? More blue or more green?
