    SOURLAND! I Thought We Were Friends! What Have You Done? Broody DUCKS!

    A sad betrayal, indeed. I went out to freshen the waterers, lock everyone up for the night. I have 3 separate pens, so I do the farthest one first, that being where the new chicks are. Then the middle pen, nearly get mugged by hyperactive hens. Got them settled. Finally finish at the nearest...

    Sending a PM and Staying In Messages?

    I may be delusional, so feel free to say so. Many have and many will. It seems to me that up until a short while ago I could be in a thread, click on PM under a user name and send them a PM. Then it would go to Messages, since I had sent a message. Now it takes me back to the first post in the...

    Delaware Blue Hen- Cockeral or Pullet? Aaaaaaaaaagh! Pics Included!

    This little stinker is now 8.5 months old. Should be pretty clear, right? NOT!!!! I was convinced it was a cockeral shortly after hatch. Then after a few months, I was convinced it was a pullet. Now? I have no idea! Hasn't crowed, but I don't have any other roosters around it. No breeding...

    Save Your Sanity! LG Incubator Thermostat Knob Adaptor

    I saw reference to this a couple years ago and even though I didn't have an LG then, the concept stuck. I recently got an LG to use as a hatcher and now I know why so many complain about getting the temperature just right- that dinky stick knob is useless. Here's the fix- it's the cap from a...
