Thanks Al. It really has been a long time. :hugs
I had around 20 chickens and we were drowning in eggs and didn't want the ongoing feed expenses. My neighbor has 2 daughters that both wanted hens, so I sold them each 5. One little grand-daughter was so excited when they came to pick them...
Just some random EEs and OEs - still have my Blue Wheaten Ameraucana rooster.
I sold half my flock to downsize a bit, and my neighbor is almost done with her coop and wants some of my hens, so I'm going to raise a few replacements.
Believe it or not, you need to eat more fat. Olive oil on salads, avocado, salmon, grass fed butter on veggies, etc. keep the inflammation down but your weight up. Too many people cut carbs but don’t ratchet the fats up to compensate.
Thanks everyone, I've missed you guys too. Haven't read back to see what I've missed in my absence, so if there's anything important just let me know.
The official word is that my scans look "better", but that's unfortunately a long way from "healed". So we wait and look again in another 6...
