    Thank you Aveca. I contacted Robert Whitney like you suggested. He & his wife are very nice people. I was looking for a young roo, he didn't have any extras so........................... I bought 8 chicks from him !! [​IMG]

    I'm very excited about these chicks, can't wait to see what they grow up to be [​IMG]

    I have a baby australorp! Her name is Fiona. She was feather sexed when a few days old. The guy is pretty accurate, anything look out of ordinary?

    Yep, been all over the country and have the bad back and numb hands to prove it......................when it hurts to ride, the fun is gone. Not everyone can stay healthy. Ive been there done that and I don't need to prove anything to anybody, just glad Im still alive to talk about it. How many of you have hit a herd of cattle at 55 mph at night and got up and rode away? I did!
    So yeah, lookin for a Jeep I can cruise the desert day or night and enjoy what Im doin.
    Its not if your going to crash your sled, its when........................hadn't had a major wreck on any motorcycle since 1965 until 10 years ago and it finally caught up with me. Time to hang up the saddle boys!

    Yeah, same here, anything over 6, I don't keep, and that is females also unless Im hard up for laying hens, then I just don't use them for breeding.
