That's what I always say, "it's just one grand experiment after another around here."
Hey, IM How are you doing?Ew, sloppy white stuff! Pretty, but sure I'd procrastinate too.
I haven't had great luck with cockerels in the past either except for one who was broody raised. I think I've learned a lot from the failures though and that helped me make better decisions this time. One thing I've learned for sure is that the same approach doesn't work for everyone and I'm willing to experiment more.
I have the same philosophy. Until someone directs a nasty or hurtful comment towards me. Then they'll get both barrels up. I don't like pretending that someone isn't acting like an ass. IMO they need to know and some sign language can be universal.I'd rather treat everyone like I'd like to be treated. I wouldn't want someone being nasty and cruel towards me.
