    [​IMG]Every one of us has essentially that relationship with our folks I guess. My son visited my folks over a few summers before he graduated from high school, and one year he came home and told me what a wonderful time he had and all the things he did, and then asked me why Grandma and Grandpa kept trying to tell him what to think :)

    I have a similar relationship with my Mom, to the extent that when I see the phrase, "pursed lips," I think of her disapproving looks - and yet she has supported me wholeheartedly when I needed her to, and I wouldn't trade her for anything.

    I love her and I can't see myself trading her in for another Mom either...not that I haven't thought about it once or twice. :)


    I'm trying to find a diy duck boot pattern. I type that in my search engine and come up with Duckhead boots. sigh

    Good luck! We've had luck with our bumblefoot chickens, but haven't experienced it with our geese yet. I should probably look up how to make booties for the geese in case they ever do have a foot injury, because I can't fathom how you would wrap one of their feet.

    It's not a pattern, but the pics in this thread may help...

    Today I was quoted $20,000 to have our driveway done...wow. I remember thinking, that big circle driveway is wonderful, when we bought the house. Now I'm like, dang it! Sure did put a damper on my day.
    Guess we'll build a deck instead.

    The loud one is a SLW, she was an early hatched(someone one forced her to hatch a week early) chick if that matters.

    I ordered some tricide-neo and ducky boots. Tonight I soaked her in an epsom/milk bath sink, globbed neomycin/prep. H and covered the 3 spots with bandaids. She's sleeping overnight in the bathtub on newspapers. What would I do if I didn't have an extra bathtub? I'm going to try to make some booties tomorrow until the other ones come in. The 2 spots on the bottom of one foot are very small and I suspect easily treated. The other larger spot on the other is bigger so suspect it will take a couple of weeks doing the protocol to get it healed. I'm going to check the other 2 ducks tomorrow to make sure they are doing well and suspect I will have to start doing a monthly foot check of them to catch this earlier.

    Ever have one of those days where you doubt every bit of knowledge that you possess?

    Ok, if you have special coop shoes, where do you keep them? I'm thinking outside the door to the coop would be inviting rain and whatnot to gather in them, but inside the house and you've brought chicken poo in!
