My son was already 6yrs old then.
y'all are in an amazing good mood for such a soggy night!
I got good news today, the guy with the 6 pullets wants to meet me THurs so I can pick them up. I don't know yet whether that is morning or after work - I sure hope I can get them home before dark.
If it is dark when I get them....then.....what am I doing with them Thursday night? I guess I could lock the flock out of half the coop and pop the newbies in there with food and water for a day. But 12 of the flock currently roosts in the back half, so there will be some unhappy hens. Am going to take Friday off work so I can work with integration over the weekend.
I can't wait. There is a a Red Star, a Buff Orpington, a Double Laced Barnvelder, a Dominique, a Plymouth Barred Rock Bantam, and a white Silkie Bantam, all about 7 months old. I am risking not quarantining them , which I would totally advise anyone else not to do, because it is a stupid move. Am doing so because my spare coop has quail in it, and because this family had chicks last year which I got in the fall and are still healthy, and this is their second summer with chicks, these were new in the spring. I think it is a suburban home. So relatively small risk, but a risk so don't do what I do!!
That sounds like a nice mix. I like having different breeds just to mix things up.
OOOOHHH...egg rolls, so good. I may have to make them if I can't get them out of my mind. Some people eat to live, I live to eat!
That doesn't surprise me. My godson is on ASD, and when he was young kind of made an engineer look stupid during a children's sermon. I was so proud of him. My grandson is also ASD. Thank goodness my DD is a teacher, he got diagnosed early. She is working to get him into therapy so he will be ready for school.
I have a nephew with full blown autism and his sister probably is somewhat asperger's , she's in college now and aced her physics exam, top of the class. So smart I can't comprehend it, I didn't get algebra.
Now days? I would homeschool, If I had to do it over. Our world is so scary to me.
Homeschooling takes a ton of work & commitment! I couldn't do it. I remember how much work a weekly Sunday school class or Scout meeting were. I see how many hours my DD puts in ALL year round for her classes, not counting grading papers.
They have you figured out. Probably headed back out so you would bring them in again with more mealworms! I had 3 girls up at the house today. I was standing at the door watching them in the driveway when I heard little whispers of "Nana are you up?" I peeked down the stairs & grandson, LTL, was coming up the stairs on the outside of the banister. Snagged him off the ledge of the stairs & we watched chicken TV together. What a good start to the day.
We stacked hay bales along the back wall of the chicken coop for extra insulation and to reduce the space a bit. We couldn't figure out why we were only getting an egg a day and only from our olive egger. We looked everywhere we figured they could fit. Here they somehow made it to the very top of the bales and squeezed their way into a small space I didn't even know existed. There was close to 2 dozen eggs up there! The olive egger isn't the most mobile chicken, so we figured she couldn't get up there :-) I'm so glad we didn't have to smell them first. Ugh.
