    My lavender Ameraucana project may have to wait another season. Majenta (pullet) is 32 weeks old and still no eggs, but I think she is pretty. Riff-Raff (cockerel) is growing up looking really sad...poor feather quality...a wierd gold leakage. Here are pics of them today.

    My Blue Rocks from the Easter Hatch are turning out to be really nice birds. Unless anyone wants a couple of extra Blue Cockerels, I am going to eat them.

    PastryMama, I can get the crane service I use over there for $75 if that's in your budget. I've used them to lift a coop/rabbit hutch onto a trailer.

    Oh I love it!
    What a great mom!

    Just think of how much the chickies will love you.!

    Enjoying the rain today!??

    Boy so strange, considering it was still like summer 2 days ago.

    I know! Right now it is 59 degrees out...it was 90 degrees 2 days ago. 59!! Can there be no happy medium?

    The rain is nice, though. I should not complain [​IMG].

    Agreed! I was going to ride Aunt Fanny into school tonight but it said 62 on the thermal-meter.

    come on, how about 80 for a couple of days first???

    Meg-Moringa-Seed! Look!

    Found this when I lifted up the licence plate on the seed starter tray you gave me!

    That's one out of 11. BTW - while I can build anything you can draw, I seem to have a black thumb. I can't even grow mold!

    My Coop
    I had quite a day today.
    I was outside cleaning out the grow-out coop for the chickies (perfect weather for it)
    and came inside briefly to let the dog in.
    Heard a noise, went to investigate.
    Turns out, the connection for the water supply hose to the toilet in my bedroom was broken and spraying water. I don't know how long it had been doing this.
    There was at least an inch of water in the bathroom, draining into the closet and threatening the wood floor in the bedroom!
    I turned off the water at the toilet, dammed the water at the bedroom and closet with towels and had my daughter take the rugs out to hang.
    I was just about to start mopping up water when my daughter came back in and said she couldn't find Daisy (our favorite LH).
    So, first things first, I ran outside to help. We looked for 15 minutes before we found her in the neighbor's yard. It took another 10 minutes or so to coax her back.
    The rest of the day has been spent cleaning up the mess in the closet. A bunch of stuff got wet, including the carpet and pad. I have the carpet pulled up and fans blowing on it.
    What a mess! [​IMG]
    Good news is the chickie coop is finally ready. [​IMG]

    Quote:I rescued a border collie one time. She had to stay with us for about two months before the no- kill shelter could take her in, when we lived near Tulsa. Her name was Stinky. You can imagine what her favorite hobby was. [​IMG]
    Guess what she did the day I had to deliver her to the shelter forty miles into town, on my way to Medical school?[​IMG] [​IMG] it wasn't the first time, or second, or third, or fourth, or fifth....[​IMG] [​IMG]
    I was really glad that dog found a new place to live, sweet as she was.
