    Opinions please

    I found two broodys this week. I have a chicken tractor that is about 8-10 feet long. I am thinking of putting it in the barn and placing one hen and her clutch in each end to have the babies- opinions of the girls being that close together?

    Probably not good

    that I have now taught my flock that if they come out of the field to the back porch I will feed them treats. They tried to follow the kids to the bus stop today. DH catches me, I'm dead. And you see the two in the avatar picture - they just lay on the porch watching the flock with this look...

    Hatching for others

    Admin- I can't figure where to put this, so you can move it if I guessed wrong! Does anyone hatch for others, as in selling to them. I am thinking about posting to CL what I have, and taking orders for hatches. I can't keep hatching for me, but I don't mind doing it for others. If you do it...

All my other chicks I have raised...

    Delinquent dogs

    So, last night I finished an afghan I have been crocheting for the last month. Just a simple non-fancy one for the family to use on the couch. It was kind of late so I threw it up on the back of the couch, you know, sort of draped across the back. Get out of bed at 5 this morning to find it...

    Info needed from you smart people that understand this stuff

    70% corn and 30% wheat mix - this is what a man near me is selling, at a really great price. But what would I need to supplement this with for my layers? Is this a good mix or just a waste of money. Thanks!

    Quilting opinions

    I have a duvet on our queen size bed, love it and ain't giving it up. Problem is, the covers are either all solid colored, or so daggone expensive! I was thinking, if I got material, I could do a quilt pattern, top and bottom, put it together, NOT add the batting, add the buttons, and viola'- i...
