    They have an EE momma. They are a beautiful dark gold color. I have 2 from my last hatch. Don't know if they will lay green eggs. Don t care if they lay brown.

    That's a big boy! He's coming off from heart worms, so he needs some weight. He's sweet, though.

    Once or twice a year we have the strangest thing happen- water actually falls from the sky! Old timers [​IMG] say it used to happen much more often, but most people only have vague memories of those days.

    Having a good hatch! They're all pullets, right? [​IMG] Curious about what you do with the cockerels. Do you raise and eat them?

    Lol I think you're right. First time I seen it in a couple of weeks. Seriously I'm just going through some things right now. I go through days like this from time to time. All the meds I'm on just to keep me from so much pain don't seem to help some Times. Well most of the time really. I hate taking meds. Just gets depressing when there's finally a pretty day and I'm stuck in the house because of my condition. I'm not feeling sorry for myself. I just hate hurting all the time and going through depression. I miss my job and can't do nothing about it. I don't know why but I feel like I've let everyone down and just a burden. Not just on byc at home too. I can't explain why I feel like that. I built cabinets from 1997 till 2013 and was pretty good at it. Now I can't do much of nothing. I'm glad that I have help with the chickens but I want to do it all myself. Just 10 years ago I would've been able to do it. Oh well enough blabbering. Sorry about all of the negativity. I will get through this. I always do. I am thankful for everyone on here. Y'all do help me through my depression. I'm very sorry. I get like this sometimes and just don't know why. Feel like I'm going crazy sometimes

    I had a bad day yesterday. Just felt like my wheels were spinning and I couldn't get any traction. So I napped. A lot. Mental anguish is real. Maybe you could find something small scale to utilize your skills? Build adorable little chicken tractors? Custom nest boxes? Flower boxes? Maybe try some raised bed gardening. Or birding?

    I can't remember your particular difficulties. When my feet hurt too much to move then I start a crochet project. I've seen women whose fingers are bent and splayed from arthritis still crocheting, so that's my go-to hobby recommendation.

    We all have ups and downs. And we're here to drag each other around for the darkest downs. So just know that you are valuable. Your presence is enjoyed here. Your jokes are funny. :) Newbie or not, we all have something to contribute. :love
