    Any one mind if I interrupt this lively thread to ask a chicken question?
    My old RIR I'd very droopy last three days especially. [​IMG]Has been down for a while. Her comb is not pretty.[​IMG] Also haven't seen her eat or drink.
    I picked her up to put her away and she spit up yellowish goo.
    Not sure if this is old age or illness. Any ideas? I'll post on the chicken illness thread but thought I'd ask here too. Thanks!

    Aurora I am very impressed with how Adam is settling in. Good job!

    Ralph, so sorry your PITA is your DW favorite. It was the same with me and my DH over Charlie. Now he's gone and I miss him. Charlie's gone, not my DH.:)

    Penguin is to be blamed for everything bad!

    It is his burden in life.

    Yea, sidekick is fine. It was a controlled drop.

    Unfortunately another 2 weeks :/ I don't want to introduce him officially until after we butcher our other 2 toms.

    I just asked my DW if I could bring Penguin on vacation. (one way trip) The answer is not printable here. But suffice it to say it is a no. I told her he would only go as far as Memphis, it did not seem to matter.

    Ralph....I could meet you in St. Louis. Not sure if that would help. :rolleyes:

    Charmed. ..could it be sour crop? There is usually someone that can help on the emergency thread. Poor girl. Keep us posted.

    Aurora. ..keep forgetting about the other boys!

    That would be fine with me, DW still said NO.... I get the feeling she does not want to get rid of Penguin.

    If he was adorable, it would be fine. He is a PITA!

    I got some pictures today, but most have not made it to my IPhone yet so I can save them. I took them on my wife's.

    Here is JJ and Ethel.
