    I'm going to say it depends on your stress... if you have been stressed way much, boy. If you have been blissfully happy, girl. If you were in the private sector without the knowledge that your husband will have a job in a few after military, I'd say boy. But knowing you are going to financially ok, girl. Unless the move is starting to stress you out...then boy.

    I'm glad Big Red found a home. I would have taken him back but since I'm not NPIP, I can't.

    My most stressful pregnancy was a girl. DH was in the Army, injured, deployed and I was alone with 2 other small kids, one special needs. It was tough times! My oldest girl was born while he was in Iraq.

    Yay!! Big Red is off to his own haram of 12 hens! Apparently they bought 12 chicks from a feed store expecting at least one to be a roo. Nope, all girls! :lol: I wasn't even that lucky with 4 sexed chicks last time!

    I have a strikingly colored bantam cochin cockerel available locally. He's a blue mille fleur from my breeding but has too much white for me to keep. He's crowing and trying to breed. $8
    Also a couple young silkie cockerel chicks, pet quality. 1 light blue and 1 splash, $5 each. the splash has a foot with 4 toes. They hatched in October. All listed on craigslist too

    Bantams are fun. Hope you get him sold.

    Yesterday I got the wireless thermometer I ordered via Amazon. Less than $15 total with shipping. Anyway, I got it set up last evening. This morning the temp in the people house was 66*, and the temp in the hen house was 29*. Yesterday afternoon the waterer heater was on and warm. It's thermostat is set to turn off at 45*.
