Thanks, @pipdzipdnreadytogo and everyone else who has expressed condolences. It's been a really rough couple weeks for us, but I've got a few days break between semesters now that my finals are done. Calculus final results should be posted today, and I should know soon if I'll have to retake the exam. I don't think I bombed it, and considering it's my last math class, I should eek by with at least a C (looks more like a B anyway).
@daskhan Hope you are yours gets everything figured out. I understand being homesick; my husband was military, and our little family had to move all over the States to places where we had no family. Call your family and keep in touch on social media. Pull back and concentrate on a handful (at most) of breeds because it's better to fantastic at one thing that crappy at fifty. Pens go slowly when there are only a couple people (at most) working on them at a time (I know! I've been there, and so has pretty much everyone else on the forum!). Spend time with your family--you can't get those moments back later. Chickens--as awesome as they are--are far less important than your wife and daughter.
I picked up three more BBW poults at the RK in Shelbyville, but I'm not sure if Major Tom's going to make it long enough for them to be outside. He's sounding terrible. Not sure what's going on. His sinuses are bad, but I've definitely seen much worse in the last year. His chest, however, sounds terrible, and he always acts like he's going to throw up when I pick him up to take him inside at night (silly boy insists on roosting outside no matter how wet and cold the weather is).
