    G'day from Australia,

    Thanks to everyone for the kind words. I had only been out of hospital for 11 days, so the team's choice was fairly rushed, but my wife did 90% of the show fowl preparation. Young Ray Connor is 90 this week so he was thrilled to have contributed to the pullet's Reserve Championship.

    With respect to those ribbons, over the years the club here had posted several championship ribbons to Gary Rossman, but I'm told that some of the shows didn't go ahead, so we assume Gary would still have them. If the new club in the USA does eventually get a show going I am sure the Australian club would support the meet with ribbons. All you need to do is let me know and I'll do my best to have it done for you.

    Kind regards,

    Ross

    G'day Kurt,

    Thanks so much. She'll do one more show then she will be single mated to a very good cockerel that we have chosen for her. She's very much a "Connor-style" female.
    We did very well in the other Australorps classes as well with both Large and Bantams.

    The show was not only the Australian Australorp Titles, but the Langshan Club of Australia's Titles as well. It was a joint show for both clubs.
    Another exciting award we received was Champion Bantam and Reserve Champion Langshan of the Show out of over 430 with our little black bantam Langshan cockerel.
    If I'm allowed I can post a picture of him, but this is an Australorp thread. Just let me know if it is appropriate.

    To get two "bridesmaids" (Reserve Championships) in those huge shows was a thrill for us.

    Regards,

    Ross

    I need some help. I'm terrible with math, always have been. I purchased a water soluble powder concentrate of vitamins and electrolytes to give my chicks a little something extra while it's so darn hot. It's Durvet brand. It gives me instructions for making large quantities, and I'm lost. [​IMG] It's a 4 oz. bag. The instructions are as follows.

    For drinking water. Dissolve 1/2 package (2 oz.) in 55 gallons or 1 package (4 oz.) in 110 gallons. Always mix fresh solutions daily.

    As you can see I cannot mix it all up and store it in a food grade container. I feel like a moron because I can't get this figured out. [​IMG]

    I'm not great at numbers either but, just keep reducing the dosage & water by 1/2 and keep working down


    I believe 1/8 oz. into little more than 2.5 gallons water would be okay for smaller waterers.

    You just need to google: measurements - How many teaspoons make 1/8 of an oz. that should o you.

    Back from vacation so here are the pics I promised. The Tigercreek crew is 20 weeks old and the Hupp Splash and Blues are 12 weeks old. "Coal" is the first BA and "Mojo" is the second, but nobody wanted to co-operate today, 100 degrees. Chet, both splashes have the light eyes as you can see in last pic of "ICE".

    It would take .036 of an ounce per gallon of water. If you have a scale that weighs very accurate you can weigh it out and figure how much it takes to weigh the correct amount actually .0363636 of an ounce[​IMG]
