    same here Cynthia, 22 at the GA/FL line this morning. We were upper 70's low 80's all last week, today the bowls never thawed out, tonight's supposed to be the coldest yet, upper teens low 20's, then 80 again by mid week. Mine cant decide what to do, every time they get started good, we get a massive cold snap like this and it shuts them down again.... oh well, it is just starting Feb good, March will be much better. still hatched 54 birds this weekend though

    Here's our forecast for the next week or so- you can see we're back up to about 60* soon. Take about 5* off the low for me since I'm actually several hundred feet higher than the town of Mineral Bluff, so colder.

    whew, that's too cold for me, we were in the mid 20's again last night, but by Thursday we're looking at near 80 again, that extra 250 miles south makes a world of difference, that and we're close to sea level here

    Both of you can Kiss My Grits.. I am taking my little love away from that mean woman in GA and JJ you watch yourself man, I may sneak a d'uccle boy to your house to assault your d'anver hens and laugh like hell when you get a batch of hairy legged and footed d'anvers with GOOD attitudes and you are scratching your head saying "WTH HAPPENED?" *smirk*

    And you Ms. Cynthia...you know Suede is perfect and you stuck him with defective women. How dare you insinuate his fertility and or studliness is in question.

    Do you use those outside brooders that you posted a picture of, this early in the year?
