    I'm not sure if anyone asked me or not. One of the roos from that hatch had a single comb and clean face, too. And the white legs. He was very handsome. I hated to see him go.

    Me too granny & last year I only had the large coop going until Dec when I set up the small coop as a brooder coop. This year I have 4 coops to take care of. What the hello was I thinking? :he What scares me the most is the ice. It never fails, every winter I fall at least once & get hurt. This winter I will have 3 additional coops to haul water for. I've got to do some rearranging in the coops & maybe downsize a few more of my 1 1/2 yr old hens. I did at least figure a system out for hauling 50# bags of feed & bales of shavings to the back garage that I can't drive up to in the winter. Wasn't until the end of last winter that I had a brain fart & started loading them into one of my grandkids sleds to tow back there. Way easier, not the sharpest tool in the shed :lau

    My hubby was grey by the time he was 25. The crazy thing is he didnt have black hair. He had a dirty dishwater blonde color hair :idunno

    With the mixed breeding of them there is not really an always/never. NY ee/glw girls both have clean faces with small wattles and funky combs, lol....one lays green, one lays cream

    Oh gosh, this is awful Granny. I hope he is going to be ok and gets compensated for this. Legally, any company has to pay workmens comp no matter how long they have been on the job. I would think this holds true for all states.

    I dont think i better get anymore B12 shots until my legs can carry me. I am bopping all over the house ! legs and foot killing me but i just cant stop . this would have been awesome if i could keep up with it. LOL the whole house smells like burnt eggs now. son came in and looking in the pot, (he didnt know it was chicken food) and he says ,"good thing im not hhaving that for dinner, right mom? " [​IMG] I said , of course we are ! you meant to tell me i stand in here breaking my back and your not ready to eat ? He quickly went back to his room and closed the door. hahaa

    Maybe just a pill? Low dose spread out over time? Sounds like something I need to get my hands on...
