    MMM! Served with a side of beef! I don't like mashed potatoes and that is not, that can be served with a fork! Like twice baked potatoes with just the guts! Yum!

    Morning! Hmmmm, horseradish? Sounds interesting. Coffee is cooking. I need it this morning[​IMG]

    Has anyone purchased chicks from hatcheries by way of mail? It looks like I am going to have to do that to get the breeds I want this year. I am trying to find a hatchery that sells cockrells and pullets-that are not de beaked! I want some English Cuckoo Marans, Speckled Sussex (last time I am trying this breed), Black cooper French marans, blue cooper French marans, and more. I just can't think this early. I am still watching for local breeders.

    @Beer can , Those potatoes sound good, but thinking the salt is not the healthiest for me. The best potatoes around here are sold at the county fairs. Skin on French fries with malt vinegar. Also not the healthiest choice for me. [​IMG]

    @BriardChickens I have heard of the T90 work outs. Do they use weights during the workouts or is it cardio based? How long is your typical class?

    I don't think most hatcheries debeak unless you ask for it. I got my last order from Meyer's, I think they have most of the breeds you are looking for but I could be wrong on the Marans, I know they had more varieties than your typical hatchery for a price, Stombergs has some other's do also. SandHill preservation center might be your best bet if you struck out on the others, but they cost more and from what I hear you have to order early or you miss out.

    I will repeat my opinion on Speckled Sussex again, based on my enormous experience gathered from a brother and sister combo. They're not a nice breed. Clumsy, skittish, slightly bullying birds. Tasty eggs though.

    Good morning to everyone.
    I have been known to serve up a large baked potato with just butter, salt, pepper, sour cream and cheese for breakfast. Making it a twice baked potato. So thank you for giving me the idea to do just that for breakfast. Filling, fast and hot. Have a great day everyone. I do have a question. What is the name of the hatchery that has a nice truck an delivers their chicks? Thank you for considering answering. Good morning to all. It is going to be a busy day today. It is going to be nasty weather coming our way.

    Mmm, baked potatoes are delicious as well. I like to bake them with salt in tin foil, and then serve them with butter, grated cheese and Skagen mix, that's basically shrimp, dill, onion, black pepper and creme fraiche. Some salt and mustard too. Karin likes to eat them with roe, smetana and red onion.
