Thanks, my friend! I was tickled beyond belief that you garnered a first place win in the same contest! (Ralphie, you can look that word up later - teehee). Just fantastic that such an unconventional approach to chick raising was recognized like that - and you did such a great job!!
Here's the link to my article, Bruce..

OH she will do anything to steal my all expense paid trip to Australia!
Relax, Ralphie! You get to take your trip winning first place and share that with our very own @azygous instead of getting stuck with me on a plane...for hours...with no nicotine! Congratulations to both of you, by the way! You each did a great job with your articles and I loved seeing them recognized!
Well NOW I am Did @Blooie win and @duluthralphie and @azygous tie for second or the other way around????
@duluthralphie You need to smuggle some REAL Black Australorp fertile eggs into your first class carryon for the return trip. Get one of those special "we REALLY trust you" cards from ICE so you don't have to have your bag checked by immigration
@Blooie If you won more hatching eggs and don't want to mess with the incubator, I can send you Zorra. I had to put her in the buster this evening. At 9 AM, both she and Peep were in the right side nest box. Add big Zorra and little Peep together and you have the equivalent of 2 full sized large fowl in one box, tight fit. Sometime between then and 4 Zorra had moved to the middle box, pretty much comatose. At this point Peep will stay out of the nest if I remove here and steal the eggs but Zorra headed right back in to sit on a plastic egg. She's been making the "broody cluck" noise for the past couple of days. Mr. Hyde returning.
Well Diane, ANOTHER poorly written, uninteresting, totally uninformative article. Will you NEVER stop?? (Please, never)
I'm still ready for my autographed 1st edition copy of your book. Got started on that yet?
