Wow Jenna, thank you so much. I'm just amazed at how quick and thorough you are.
I'll give all that and some calcium a shot.
I've been keeping my Willow in chicken jail these past few days, but considering letting her out because I have to leave town tomorrow and I won't be back for 11 days...
Oh my, thank you so much for such a quick and thorough reply.
