    I couldn't help myself. I needed to clean the poop from underneath the broody so I made her get up. I was hoping she'd grab a little food or water but nope. So as I moved the poop, she was right back on the eggs. Maybe I need to go broody and lose some weight. Pearl would probably just let me sit there in my own poo though.

    Twist, your crumble sounds delicious! Don't know why anyone goes to the trouble of making pie crust when crumble is so easy, and tastes better too, to me. Putting that on the menu for tomorrow! [​IMG]

    Depends. I had an EE whose comb turned red at 2.5 weeks. Keets are trickier.

    Sometimes you can, but 6 weeks is more common. It depends on the shape of the comb and feather color pattern. A pullet will have a single low ridge running down the center of the comb. Cockerels have a more puffed up, fatter comb. Look at camping's EE chicks a few pages back. That's what a male comb looks like.

    I help out on this thread a lot.

    Thanks wishing. I will definitely be doing some research on that . I do love older looking trees. When I use to deer hunt a lot, I'd sit and just look at all the nature. I love it! Always said I was born to be in my climber in a tree. I can do that no more much at all. I really miss it. Now on the rare days that I feel like going, I have to stay grouded. Still enjoy all the natural and wildlife. You just can't get a view on the ground like you can in the trees.

    Thanks wishing. I'll check this thread out


    but tippy its so hard . She looks at me as she saying you stupid stupid man. I'll peck your eyes out if you don't leave me alone. I guess I'm so worried because it's my first and it's her first time too. I got her in March as a chick.
