minniechickmama, so sorry to hear about your son, sending you and your family best wishes. Hospitals are exhausting even when you aren't worried to death about someone you love.
I'm starting to wonder if the rooster was old enough to do his job....hopefully at hatch date I won't be running around trying to find chicks for the broodies if the eggs don't hatch. Maybe I should learn candling...
Scandia, near as I can tell, press and seal is some kind of fancy plastic wrap for food. I try really hard not to use plastic or foil, and it takes me a couple of years to go through a roll of either, so I can't tell you the last time I was in that aisle in a grocery store. They use it just to keep the heating pad clean, which a towel or something could do quite well.
I am sore today from hoop coop building, and I am soo sorry that the ticks are out like crazy. quail won't eat them either.
