Very nice amberjem!
Briardchickens, I love the owl pic. You should get it enlarged & framed. Pretty.
Hennible, thanks for the update on the bird flu. Step daughter is in town from Indiana......going to use extra measures to make sure we don't get it. She doesn't raise chickens, but she does raise sheep. So, she frequents the feed store where others raise chickens. I have started stocking up on feed. I used to buy 3 layer and 1 rabbit feed per week. I now double that and store them in aluminum garbage cans every other week to lessen the foot traffic and possible spread of diseases at the feed store.
Beercan, I love my Sussex. Only have 1 full blooded speckled. He is a monster bird. His offspring are fast growing & large for the most part. The ones that remain smaller are 1/2 rir. I have a few hens rir/ss cross. They are curious and super talkative. I couldn't tell of egg production. I need to keep better track of that. Currently getting no eggs. Maybe 1 a week. Weather keeps changing and has been so rainy and cold, I don't want 2 let them out to get sick.
Got new patio door in & subfloors fixed in family room!
I'll see if I can post pics later. When we bought the place, we knew the floors were bad. They use some kind of compressed boards for the subfloors and when they get wet, they just expand and turn to mush like a peat pod.
Need to get ready for work. You all have a great day. I'm super excited because of Martin Luther king day, I actually get TWO whole days off, in a row!
