    Good morning! Nothing to report - just getting the thread going for today. Coyote - what do you think of starting a new thread 1/wk instead of every day? We could still post daily, just easier to "chat". I will check in later.

    Crazy easy way to make hard boiled eggs

    OK, I've been trying various methods to hard boil my eggs,peel them, and still end up with something resembling an egg. Some success, but nothing I'd want to use for say deviled eggs. So last weekend my husband asks if I want a boiled egg. Sure. He hands me the most perfectly peeled egg...

    walking sideways

    I have a 1 1/2 yr old black sex link that started walking sideways today. Crossing her legs - like she's drunk. She was trying to eat and walk around, but finally got frustrated and found a place to stand. She's now quarantined in the garage. She ate some BOSS and crumble (her crop was...

    Top of the run netting/wire that holds up in heavy snow??

    Hi all, I lost a girl to a red tail hawk today. My silly lines over the run didn't help. The netting I put up last fall came down in a heavy snow. I remember reading about something netting/wire that can hold up in snow? Or the holes are big enough to let the snow through... Any info would...

    I had to do it...

    I killed my first chicken today. I knew I would have to do it, but kept putting it off. She regularly gets eggbound. She had been bad for awhile and my usual measures hadn't helped. I'm leaving for 5 days today and I was really worried about her. I decided I couldn't leave her in this heat...

    Pip oozing??

    Is this a sign that something went wrong with the chick? This is different from a rotten oozing egg, isn't it? Should I get it out of the bator, or wait for the hatch to finish? Chicks started pipping this AM, and one is out. Thank you! Terry
