Good Morning Everyone!!
BHep - It didn't work...I'm still here and waiting!! DH has his fingers crossed for Sunday (he thinks an April Fool's baby would be cool.) My fingers are crossed for whenever my mother is able to get down here and watch the other little one. LOL Just hoping to have enough food prepared that she will NOT have to cook!! LOL...SHHHH, I didn't say that!!
Scott - We live out in the boonies, so no one would even notice the sounds of gunshot, as we frequently hear "neighbors" having target practice (one works for or runs a gun shop, according to his vehicle), we have hunters all around as well as wild boar/coyote that we're allowed to "dispose of." Thus I am not opposed to having a gun...I'd just like to learn how to use it first!! Don't want to shoot my foot when I was suppose to be shooting a predator!! Glad I could offer some happy news for you last night as well!!
Kmac - I am hoping and praying all turns out well for you. I am not a dog person myself, but I do understand how they can become such an integral part of the family and how hard it is to make any decision on whether or not an animal stays or goes. Best of luck to you and we're all hoping for the best!
We are on day 3 or 4 of our broody sitting on her eggs!! I think it's safe enough to say at least for now that she is intending to hatch these...for now!! I do get "the evil eye" every time I go into the coop to check on her. I have NOT stuck my hand underneath to to check if she has more eggs than what I marked or not...and yesterday she did not come off the eggs when I brought their food in. I hope she is eating/drinking well enough...she's one of my favorites (SHHH, don't tell the other girls, they might get jealous). Still looking to get rid of 1 rooster and add a few more hens (when they're ready) because I can't seem to keep the chicken saddles ON these girls and their backs are all torn up by the boys fighting over who is going to be the last one to "visit" each girl!! I am on my 4th set of chicken saddles (gave up the idea of using snaps for easy access) and yet they still manage to get them off!! It's a conspiracy I tell you!!
Once we are done planting our garden, DH's next project (completely decided by him) is to dig a "small" 20-40 gallon Koi pond for us to have DUCKS complete with a water feature (as an added bonus to me) and a working filter/pump. Have I ever said how great of a guy he is?? I think he secretly wants to design and build a filtering pump system so we can keep the water clean without expending too much water/electricity...he's thinking solar powered pump/filter!! I just nod my head and say the ducks would be just as happy with a kiddie pool and how much I appreciate all that he does!! Who am I to argue with a mini pond, right?? LOL Again, I think it's a secret way for him to get out of infant diaper duty!!
Well, I am off to make bread for the next few weeks...have a great day everyone!!
