    Thanks for the support. I am glad you persisted.

    Enjoy your daughter and your new chickens.

    Ben's thread is a great read. I hope to get over to his chicken-dom in the next year but I look forward to meeting him on the chicken mission.

    I made it home!

    Close to 70 wonderful eggs.

    Thanks to y'all that parted with your precious ova! I will hand them off to Bernie with pomp and circumstance.

    Your blue layers are going to get a romantic little coop with the BCM roo next week to see if we can make some olive eggers

    4 Australorp pullets I purchased (suppose to be ~14 wks) and then from a generous local BYC member (kaybee123): Golden Laced Cochin pullet and cockerel (~11 wks), an Olive Egger (~9 wks), a legbar (~9wks), 3 EE's (~5wks) and a Salmon Fav whose age escapes me. I've converted a couple of old horse stalls into coop with attached run. Will keep the little ones in a large dog crate inside the coop until they are old enough to all get along. Creating a melting pot in the FL panhandle!

    Welcome anytime, we are pretty close to the airport here, just holler out.

    Plans are coming together for the chicken mission at my end, getting bigger than Ben Hurr, but moving forward.

    Who told you river sand? Wrong. May be cheaper but can have all sorts of pollutants in it from animal feces to chemicals ..Play sand is the cleanest. so don't worry. you did good
    Well dry is good..... but it will dry shortly if its hot as it is here where you are..

    i guess it depends on where your river is. I lived on river water for many years. Something to consider I guess
