    Thanks! :) I went to the Chickenstock thread last night. Is Opa still around or Catray (I think that was her screen name)? I will keep you in mind. I was able to find someone who is NPIP in Vestaburg. The Belgian d'Uccles are beautiful birds! I have never owned that breed before. These days...

    Hi Michigan Peeps! I haven't been on in forever. Hope all is well. I am in need of purchasing a few laying pullets. I couldn't remember which Michigan people here sold laying pullets or maybe someone could point me in a direction. NPIP preferred. :)

    In reference to my feral barn cat post - I did see one of my two barn cats tonight. He was all snuggled up in the coop near the heat lamp. I haven't saw the other one at all for a few days, but he is the most skittish of the two. As long as I don't try to pet Freckles, he stays put. :) I think...

    Holly - hope you see her soon! I see a set of kitty tracks around the coop, so that makes me feel a bit better. I hope I catch a glimpse of them today.

    Our barn kitties are pretty feral. I'd prefer them in the garage in weather like this. We got them from the humane society and were made aware that they'd never be personable towards us. One lets us be in his presence. The other doesn't and runs out. They have done an excellent job of keeping...

    Hope everybody has faired well through this weather. I couldn't find the feral barn cats we have. I hope they are okay. Usually they take comfort in sleeping with the chickens this winter and take advantage of the heat lamp. I didn't see them at all yesterday. Our crazy dog (red heeler)...

    What would kill a chicken and then leave it completely untouched?

    I have had a neighbor dog kill one of mine. It sounds similar to your situation.

    Hope everyone had a nice Christmas! We received a couple of inches of yesterday. I hope those downstate all have power! Such a terrible storm last weekend. We received mainly snow up here.

    Opa or anyone else who knows - Was John Blehm done with all breeds or just the Vorweks? I was just thinking about him last week. I was interested in some Chanteclers.

    DH just shot a doe this weekend. The deer had the most fat he's ever seen. The other deer he harvested this year seems a bit more on the fatty side than usual. Does this mean it is going to be a hard winter? Eek! As long as it isn't full of ice storms and frigid below zero temps, I am okay...

    Back atcha Chickflick and Candy. :) Trying to figure out where my dishwasher is leaking ever so slightly from. Wondering if I need a new door seal. I am so terrible. I didn't know you were supposed to rinse it off every now and again. Six years later and it looks as though the seal has seen...

    What are you canning now?

    We have some of those growing around here, too! I was going to take them to our local conservation district to figure out what they were. Canned 5 quarts and 2 pints of tomatoes.

    4 pints and one half pint of tomatillo salsa. This time I substituted lemon juice for the lime juice. I like it better with the lemon!!! Good thing I have tomatillos coming out the whazoo! It's so yummy!
