    It has been around 6 months since my last post on here, and my, has it changed, lol! I was expecting the old blue homepage when I finally dusted off this account and logged on. When was the format changed?

    Anywho, the Eastin flock had quite a tough winter. We started off 2011 with a brand new group of 30 chickies after the rest of our very first flock had all died off. After 3 power outages that resulted with frozen waters and no heat, 2 outbreaks of cocci, a murderous raccoon, and a visit from the neighborhood dogs, we lost 12 birds. So, over the past week, I have collected a fancypants new brooder and 20 little babies to account for our winter losses. I am also planning on selling hatching eggs again this summer- finally!

    So, how has everyone else been? [​IMG]

    Yes, it does look different, doesn't it? Been a while since I was on myself. How are you finding it? There's something weirdly likeable about the new site.

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your birds. :hugs But a hatch is always exciting! Good luck with that, and hopefully you'll have a lot of new little cheepers running about the place soon enough. ;)

    I lost one of my birds, but she was just getting old, and never seemed as healthy as the others. "Burned out", it seems. I hope to perhaps get a few more to take over the reigns as egg layers later this year. :D
