    Sounds like good progress! Also sounds like plenty of tedium left.,

    If you have my luck with roo's, then h*ll ya you will have some roo's. I was getting about 60% roo's out of my hatches this year. Sold my sister-in-law 6 chicks, 4 of them turned out to be roo's. Felt so guilty about it that I gave her 2-15 wk old hens that were close to laying & have had to try to find homes for her roo's argh.... Got 2 rehomed & a 3rd roo will be coming this weekend.

    That one ended up with beagle legs. My daughters puggle is all puggle face & body, but a definate ringer for the Beagle appetite & hunting skills. That darn dog dug in a snow bank her first winter & came up with a frozen frog. In the summer she hunts night crawlers. She will go crazy sniffing & then she starts to dig. Next minute she got a worm. Crazy dog!

    Nope. Not me. I'd be half again her age, heavier, blonde with lots of wrinkles.
