    Morning everyone, left off the good because I have fasting blood work @12:30, so no coffee yet today. If I wasn't such a night time snacker I wouldn't have to do it so late in the day :hit

    The orange in the yolks comes from carotenoids, dark leafy things, grass, alfalfa. Corn will contribute too. They will build it up in their systems over the winter break, and you will see yellower legs and skin (for those who have yellow skin). Yolks are darker orange in the spring and tend to get lighter over the summer as the pigment gets used up. Hens that have laid well will have very pale feet/skin. Old timers cull hens who have bright yellow legs in the fall because it meant she didn't lay much. You can supplement with leafy things, but I have found that the cycle tends to happen anyway. Some feeds add marigold petals to make the yolks orange, but I wonder if that has the same health benefits as when the hens get good greens.

    Your gd is a cutie!!! [​IMG]



    Morning! Hope dd's appointment goes well. I can tell your eyes weren't open yet because jane had 6 Xs in her age, not 7! [​IMG]




    [​IMG] Free horses!!! Get 'em in the barn! [​IMG]



    Lisa, fasting is no fun. They make you do that when pregnant to check for gestational diabetes. After not eating, you have to sit in the dr office and drink this syrup stuff with your poor empty stomach. [​IMG] I couldn't finish it all. Oh, you have to they told me. I said the blood test wouldn't work anyway if I barfed the syrup all over the office. Haha! Did I mention I don't like going to the doctor?
