    My new pressure cooker is coming tomorrow,NEVER used one before! HELP!

    I LOVE my pressure cooker! I've had it for about 3 or 4 years. I'll admit it was a little scary the first few times I used it. I all but dove under the kitchen table the first time I heard it make noise, but it was all good. I use mine for roasts, a pork roast is melt in your mouth delicious...

    Guess What?

    It did take a long time..and the strange thing, I pictured Kung-Fu Esther trying to take my eyes out when I turned the drier on but she just stood there. However, drop a stick near the run and they go all Henny Penny on me. My chickens are weird but I heart them!

    Winter hatch for spring eggs?

    I don't know the answer but I think it's a great question. We start our plants early, indoors, to give them a head start..why not our chickens?

    Guess What?

    Chicken butt! If you would have told me, at any point in my suburban life, that there would come a time when I brought a chicken into my house to wash and blow-dry her tush, I'd have looked at you like you had lobsters crawling out of your ears. Sure, I've washed a lot of chicken in my time...

    Quote: Ya know...I'm not really sure! This is the first time we've built anything like this. There was a lot of holding stuff up and marking it with a Sharpie or a scratch all and then using the t-square to line up and connect point A to point B. This summer we have to build a deck for the...

    What do you pay for food-grade DE?

    I paid $25 for a 50# bag and then $33 to ship it! I'd say you got a pretty good deal from where I'm sitting. I wish I could find it local.

    Quote: I actually thought about doing that on the roof but I'm not sure if shingles are moss/mold resistant. It sure wouldn't hurt to try!

    Anti-turn Washer (Alternative to Fender Washer)

    What a fantastic idea! I've never heard of them but will definitely look for them when we start building our run this weekend. I only wanna have to do this once, so I don't mind spending a little extra to make sure we do it right.

    Quote: Thank you! It's moss. There was on old fence behind our garage that we salvaged to use on the outside (there's plywood underneath) and thankfully, my 9 year old son keeps an incredible inventory of our yard..we had no idea there was a stack of shingles behind the garage, too. Cha-ching...

    First, let me introduce myself! My name is Jamie. My husband had been bugging me for years to get chickens and finally, after getting tired of spending $4 a dozen for free range, organic fed, hand collected eggs, I gave it some serious thought. After much research (mostly here..what a wealth...
