I'm so sorry about Arnie, Checoucan. It's a sad day for Danz, too. I can't imagine losing my mother. Tweety, I'm glad your DH is feeling better. 600 is scary; it's good he got to the hospital in time. HEChicken, my chickens peck at anything the least bit shiny. It must really attract their attention and apparently it looks quite tasty as well. Mine also peck at my freckles and paint spots on my clothes, so I guess they'll try anything.
