    Hi guys, I made it home. I hurt so bad. my foot. its swelled up .I couldnt get my shoe back on for anything. No name is feeling more comfortable here and Im not liking what I see. she is food aggressive. she is trying to play with frosty and all of a sudden frosty dont want to have anything to do with her. She (frosty ) is growling. $90. at TSC and $200 at wal-mart. hurt too bad to get lunch. Thankfully Robert was up and ready to carry. Not sure how I am getting the chickens fed today. I bet they are so hot out there.
    frog, your names are added. I will write them down again for the hat after I rest a bit and let you all know her new name. I cant print what I called her when she pooped and peed the front room. yes, the prettiest room in the house.
    I got to see a chick hatch before i left this morning. I said they were all brown eggs pipping but the white one hatched. It looks nothing like polish or swedish flower. The EE rooster I froze. Im sure of it. Its all yellow ! [​IMG] Maybe it will lay a colored egg if its a hen ? Came home just in time to watch a brown egg hatch. Same colors ! of course 3 had hatched while we were gone. [​IMG]so 5 so far. 3 yellow, 1 black and 1 looking swedish !

    $150. for smokes, $100. for Roberts B day, $200 to my DD $750 gone already. And, I cant get anyone to even make me a sandwich.

    Hi granny :frow

    Congrats on the hatched chicks :celebrate I'm so jealous, wish my bator was on. I was just going to ask how they were getting on, well spooky!! Love the sounds of the colours, I like mix breed chicks as it's the unknown and a real surprise.
    Could I add "Pebbles" to the list for no name pooch? I'm not sure if it's already taken, I've been on and off the last couple of days.

    Hope that foot of yours is feeling better soon :hugs Sounds very painful not been able to get your shoe back on. Quite a spend there already but at least you have supplies in now.

    If I were there I would make you a sarnie, it's a shame teleportation has not been invented yet I would zap you one across the pond!!

    That sarnie sounds delicious :drool I could just eat one but it's 9pm here and I'm trying not to eat before bed due to bizarre dreams and my flailing around on a night. Plus I'm trying to diet, trying being the word!! With the horses being turned out in the fields for the summer or the so called summer I'm not mucking them out. I do some other mucking out at the yard for other people so in winter I usually have 20 - 25 to muck out, but right now non so the pounds have piled on a little.

    I bet your excited too :weee

    How's the humidity holding now?

    That really is excellent news, I'm glad you've got the knack of it now and it must be right as things sound really good and you have them hatching well :highfive:


    It's not too bad once you get the swing of things in winter, start with lots of layers on then once you get going you soon get a sweat on!! Order and routine with them is the key. Ice is the worst part of it, when taps freeze and it becomes a rink outside.

    We have the pipes and the like lagged with insulator stuff, but you can be certain it will freeze a,d block up at a part that's not :mad:
