    Dunno Granny...tears up my stomach. Even a big chocolate muffin or that stuff doesn't set well anymore. Love greek salad w/ beets BTW. My sisters ex DH was from Greece. Mom and sister make a mean greek salad.
    They bade this delish greek chicken soup with lemon and stuff too. It would warm your bones and cure anything that was ailing.

    Well she was a little puffed up and screeched. Looked like she was mad at the world. She didn't try to peek me though. There's one hen in with her and the kids said that when that hen got close that she screeched at her. I'll separate her somehow tomorrow.

    This year I had four chickens go broody, and one of them went broody twice. They don't always bite, but they would always puff up and scream at me. Some will do that if you interrupt them laying. I like to pester broodies in the first 1-3 days to make sure they're serious. During that time I'll move the clutch to a dog kennel either in the coop or on the porch, somewhere that the rest of the flock can see them pretty often. If she sticks the nest after being moved, then I figure she's serious.

    Sorry you can't eat chocolate mutt. That must be terrible. I'm borderline diabetic and shouldn't be eating it. But y'all know. I'm a man. I can handle anything.

    You like to move them ? I thought that caused them to stop ? I have done it but after they had been sitting for a while then I did it at night. and I took some of the nesting material with her

    all that sugar got mine up to 142 or somewhere in there. I bet its low now.
