    Sure wish we were closer too. I'm really trying to keep my chickens from multiplying to much but boy is it hard. If I ever do find a broody I can always give the chicks a new home. Oh who am I kidding. Probably keep them all lol.

    Granny I'm in the same boat. I'd love to have them all now. Funny it started out with, I think I'll get me a couple hens so I can have some fresh eggs. If I'd known it was this addictive, I wouldn't have done it lol. I'm really glad I did. I feel sad for people that don't have them. They missing out on a lot of fun.

    Morning all. Granny, I feel the same. Too tired. The house is messy and I just want to sleep.

    I show the breeder a pic of the guineas and she also thinks a boy and three girls. :celebrate I've always had good luck picking up chicks from her. She's the one I bought the polish from and I ended up with a pair in each color.

    I put all the birds in one coop and it sounded like a battle royale in there. I need more roosts.

    morning hun. lucky for sure ! Maybe its the fall weather that makes us tired. our body knows when harvest is over. fresh veggies gone. cooler weather slows you down. its time to relax . gear up for what will be coming. (here anyway.) I am off to make a ladder. hoping DH will feel like helping some . need a 16ft. for the chickens to reach the loft . [​IMG]

    That's another thing granny, I never thought I'd be in the ladder making business. Well I guess it's not a business . Not like I'm selling them. But I've made three for my chickens so far. How far apart do you space your steps?

    I would giggle myself to sleep at memories of DH saying "Five is plenty!" because I was just under 100. :lau :lau
