Hawkeye, I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am about Seymour. It was very obvious how much you loved that bird. It's true, when you have little kids it's terribly difficult to keep one's presence of mind especially by evening when you're completely done. Please try not to beat yourself up about it. Making mistakes is what we all do, it hurts enough to lose your little buddy. I say you forgive yourself for being human and just grieve your loss. I know you feel crappy, but Seymour had a beautiful life with you because of who you are. The coyotes just seem to have proliferated like crazy last year and this. Danz, my auto humidifier got a kink in the line right where it enters the cabinet and shut off too. So you may check that. As long as I keep the bucket aligned with the entrance whole into the cabinet it works fine. I had mine pushed to the back on top when it got the kink. Hope you have a good day, Danz. Pikeman, I bet you're going to feel like a new man after surgery. Congrats on getting that behind you! So, guys, I'm typing this with one eye. I had to make a trip to the ER last night AGAIN. So here's what happened. I was happily visiting my big chicks and had Buffy (Buff Orp) sitting in my lap, snuggling in the crook of my arm and talking to me. Buffy can be really insistent about attention. So when Henrietta, the beautiful grey EE pullet, made a rare visit to my other knee I greeted her and we were having a fine chat, which peeved Buffy a bit so she landed a respectable peck on my arm to regain attention. I disregarded her warning to my own peril. The next peck landed right in my right eye. YEEEoooowwwwwww! So I had to go off to the ER with yet another chicken related injury. I'm off to see a specialist so have to run. I can tell you I tried very hard not to walk with a limp into the ER!
