I'm not keeping up with this thread for now.
GH fair next week! Feeling a bit less nervous. Both the girls have finally settled on our sweet and gentle little d'anvers. I am relieved my oldest didn't stick with the Sumatra. She'll be great in a couple of years, but too riled up for a first-time fair chicken.
Just visited the Thurston Co. Fair. Sooo much fun. Felt better after seeing the condition of some of the kids' poultry projects. Dirth feathers. Absent feathers. Poopy butt. (And I'm sorry, but your "hen" is anything but!) I'm getting a bit jaded now.
Still, the girls got a good look at some real spurs and they finally understood why I have encouraged them to put the cockerels down before they get squirmy. Our boys still have just tiny spikes where their spurs will be.
Any how..... I'm not real chatty on this thread but like to keep up and I will have no time to until Septemberish. So, if you want to, PM me, especially if you need me to get into plant-geek mode. Always ready to help, even if you don't want it!!!
