    That's awesome you're considering 4H!! I was in Elbert County for 10 years and loved the experience. My sisters & I showed nearly every livestock type at some point and some of the other crafty projects. 4H involves kids in the community, gives them responsibility, record keeping and public speaking experience. $70 isn't bad for a whole year. When you have a good leader, it makes for a good experience. Does Aimee lead at Strasburg? She does in Deer Trail and she's a very sweet lady!

    Hmm, I wonder if she wants a sleeping cubby? Do you have room in the coop to give her a box or crate to sleep in that could maybe even be taken out in the morning? Or maybe a lower, wider perch just barely above the nest box? Just taking shots in the dark, I have no idea :)

    LOL me too! Spring is just around the corner :) I've been thinking about brooding more chicks than I really need and selling the started chicks, probably just pullets because so few people want or can have roosters and they are STILL on Craigslist free or close to it. DH thinks I don't have time, but to me it never seemed to take that much time. Am I completely mis-remembering?

    as a newbee... how can you tell if there is frostbite? Does the comb look different?

    They get black spots on their combs. That's why I like more of the pea comb birds. They are less likely to get frostbite than the breeds with tall skinny combs.
