    Silkies and showgirls are fried ( a little tough) or soup.

    I take roosters back. One has to do something with them!

    Process them painlessly and with love I say!

    Clean the sponge with hot water and soap. Rinse the soap out and wring out the water.

    Then put the sponge into the microwave for about a minutet. It will be sterile and can go into the incubator.

    I have not used sanitary napkins but if I did I would put it into a glass storage container and put water to just over the top. Sponges last 2 to 3 days.

    If my memory serves, the creators of NN were doing just that, then they found that the skin became so tough without the feathers they put some back on the birds.

    I use alot of sponges at lockdown, I have two I put under the vent holes so I can squirt them easily, unless the chicks are sleeping on them. They are so cute sleeping in the cartons.

    Weird, my multi quote function isn't working.
    Ali707 - your showgirl comment had me [​IMG]

    Here's a couple updates on my end...

    I made this over the weekend for a friend's wedding shower gift...

    [​IMG]


    And a couple pics of the babies... not so much babies anymore! They are 4.5 weeks now and I think I'm starting to see who is a boy and girl. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my favorites are girls. I started giving them outside time in a makeshift run.


    [​IMG]

    One of my favorites... Lucy
    [​IMG]

    The hen who was attacked by the bobcat is totally healed! [​IMG] I can't believe how quickly she recovered. She is now regrowing her feathers where they were torn out, the poor thing has been looking kind of silly with a bald back, choppy neck, and 3 tail feathers!

    Someone earlier mentioned being a country girl in the city... well I'm the opposite! I'm an urban girl recently transplanted in the woods! I had an ongoing issue with a mouse building nests in my car heater and it finally escalated last weekend when I turned on my heater and heard another loud thumping sound. I quickly turned it off but a few days later this TERRIBLE smell developed. [​IMG] So I left the windows open last night and this morning there was a torn open bag of nuts on my driver's seat. Looks like some raccoon or skunk had a party in there last night - but I digress. [​IMG] The stink was completely unbearable today, I had to drive with the windows down and even then it was bad. Its a good thing we have nice weather at the moment! DH took apart the system and found a maggot-filled mouse carcass somewhere in the vent. EWWWWWW. [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] I'm just glad he got it! I hope this solves that stink issue. Ugh.
