    Looks awesome Jem! Nice work. I want one of these...adding it to the list. Speaking of lists, Speckled Sussex were on there, now not so sure. Not as high on the list as the Marans though! Love the Blue Copper Marans posted above [​IMG] I haven't found a local breeder yet with these, or any Marans - just people posting on Craigslist that can't spell the breed correctly.

    All this talk above about potatoes has me wanting to put them on the menu tonight or tomorrow - my favorite is mashed (with milk, preferably cream, butter, salt as a minimum). My husband's parents are both from Ireland so of course he loves potatoes just about any way. My kids - nope, unless you consider french fries.

    Nice job on the tractor.

    I don't have any recipes to offer yet, but I'll be roasting the next one, we'll see how that turns out.

    In the weekend we'll finally have time for a hardware store trip, then I can start the chilis, looking forward to it.

    Sam, any chocolate left?

    Jem, wash with cold water, rub down with soap, rinse properly to get soap out, scald in 150F water,dipping up and down. When wing feathers come loose easily, start plucking.

    Soap really keeps the smell down. We use pine soap.
