    Thanks pig.

    Your package is finally on its way. i needed the right packaging. i ended up with dry ice to keep it cool. i included a foam insert for the orp eggs.

    It looks like I am going to have a good collection of orps one day. i have some lemon cuckoo and blues as well. One day we will have those big boys as well.

    When does Mrs P get her official results?

    thanks for the fish, mrs piggy really wants some fish bad
    i hope she doesn't OD on fish the 1st day they arrive :)))


    oooh lemmon & blues too wow well done man!

    well the test didn't go as planned :(
    so it now looks like she will give the LPN exam a shot so she can atleast be working in the healthcare field
    she was hitting the books hard for a YEAR but still fell short


    oh well life goes on

    how are the chooks?

    the exam is really tough on foreign grads. although they study in english, it makes a huge difference when its your first language. Tell her not to give up. A year as an LPN and just doing practice multichoice questions - all she can get her hands on - and she will have a good chance.

    Tell her to enjoy the comfort food on its way

    Hugs from the Oz family

    thanks OZ
    maybe she needs to retake a few classes?
    maybe an online class?

    there were about 8 sections that she fell short on but not all
    maybe 50% of the section were below passing
    if it was EZ everyone would pass it the 1st time ....rite

    got my new larger brooder better than 1/2 done
    got to get a couple hinges for the door
    & then install the heatlamp with dimmer
    i don't want cooked chicks just warm chicks :)



    take care

    having the kids go through the incubation then the chick delivery was great.

    working on an avatar with golf bags as the bombs as suggested here.

    Great post! And I am sure everyone would agree that no matter how we got into the life of "chicken lover" it becomes a love of life that keeps us going!

    Great story Oz.

    Just to make ya think about your list, here are some pics of Dark Cornish I have. Slow to mature but they came from England years ago also known as Indian Game. All hatchery stock

    Here's the Roo

    Right now smaller than the BR and RIR I have but very pretty and they are supposed to be pretty good at flock defense. Not so much in demand

    And just for giggles here's Fred

    Here's one of my EE Roo's
