    Nice flock. I just picked up some nice barred rock pullets to put under my newly acquired speckled sussex rooster (who i am a little in love with, lol) for some bsl chicks.....by spring I'll have settled on my silver based hens for rsl and, more importantly, will have some ss girls for ss chicks. My son and I will be hatching come next year.

    Granny sorry about the Dr appt and you being depressed. Drs don't know squat. They got a lot of book since but the only one that knows is the man upstairs. They gave my grandpa six months to live. Fifteen years later, he died. They only missed it by fourteen and a half years though.


    if I could I'd get you up in one granny. Dad use to have a backhoe. I dug up my whole yard just to fill it back in.


    thanks danna. I tried and paying for it today. But, glad it's done. Chicks look like they've doubled in size since we put them in last night.


    If we were closer, I'd build you one and bring it to you.

    I'd love to go see granny and her dh. I'd have to fly. Couldn't handle the ride.

    loaded question :lau

    It's a beautiful calendar granny. I was like a kid at Christmas when pearl come in with the package. Gotta cool bumper sticker too.

    Congratulations Linda. Getting chicks has been going around. And it's terrible. From what I hear there's no cure and it's very contagious. You sometimes don't even have to leave the house to catch it.

    ain't that the truth :lau

    Well watering the chickens was rough but it's done. Checked on my broody and she's still sitting and ******. I don't think she ate anything yesterday. Didn't look like her food or water had been touched. I'm worried she won't do it herself. I got her up and she just went right back to sitting. Please tell me she'll eat and drink on her own?

    They can get real skinny sometimes. Just try to see if she'll eat once a day. I left food and water so mine could come out and eat when they wanted.

    Maybe take her out of her crate close the door, have a dish of FF & water close. See if that entices her. My Cochin/EE cross was like that. She wouldn't budge by herself, I took her off the nest once a day so she would eat, drink & poo. She was spastic though, did everything in about 10 mins.

    She's had food and water the whole time. Yesterday was the only day that she didn't eat or drink. I took her off the nest and she looked at the food and water but just got back on the nest. Lord I hope she'll eat and drink today sometime. I don't know what else to do if she won't eat or drink when I take her off the nest. I'll be watching her all day but if she's not up by sunset, I'll try taking her off again I guess. Is that all I can do?
