    Ha ha Granny...I'm not much help. I seldom get bored, but my mind certainly rambles. The fireplace doors may work...give it a try and see.

    Granny, the fire place door would look cool. Only two drawbacks I can think of. If the edge is sharp where the birds have to go over, and they sit on it, as you know they will, it could hurt them. Other thing depends on how the door is made and what you use on the coop floor. The folding ones I've seen have a track along the bottom and if it fills up with shavings or other junk, it won't work properly. If there's an open channel for the junk to fall through, then it should work. I'd try it!

    unfortunately i have a plain jane door. he didnt even use the wood that matched the building. Amateur. should see how the hole is cut. lol no matter, the job is done and the chickens are in heaven. first time some of them have had their feet on the ground/dirt. maybe i will get well enough to squat and redo. I was going to put it on the outside but yr right about the track, it would of been worthless in a month or so.

    Northern Ohio,
    I have an update on Tom the Rabbit:
    For the last couple of weeks he has been doing fine and off of his meds. But as I was feeding today, I noticed somthing. He had gotten a lump on his face. It is right over where his sinus would be. If it is a sinus infection, I might not have any other choice but to put him down.
    I feel there is nothing else I can do, I am sick, I am at a loss, and I just need somthing to go right. Just Once! Is that too much to ask?

    Anyway, I feel kinda like you do granny, It has been an almost worthless month. I am done with today, I am going to bed.

    Good night, warm fuzzies.

    I wonder if Tom has 'snuffles'? Caused by the bacteria Pasturella (sp?) sometimes infected rabbits will develope abcesses.

    I used to raise rabbits for meat. A man came every two weeks to pick up my fryers. I bought a male rabbit for breeding that brought what I suspected was snuffles. I tried treating it with antibiotics, but soon realized that as large as my rabbitry was, the cost would be prohibitive. I culled EVERYTHING that started having snotty noses, starting with him. It took me over a year to get rid of messy noses.

    Individual rabbits can be treated, I just didn't have the time, money or energy to treat hundreds of rabbits.

    You may have to take Tom back to the vet to see if he has an abcess. Good luck!

    This morning when I woke up the bator was at 104 even. No idea how long it had been cooking like that. And of course I was panicked. Then we went to church and had lunch at a park and took the kids to a playground, so I couldn't even baby it. I just finished candling, and the only one I pulled was a day 8 or so quitter. I had a few that were questionable, and everyone else looked awesome. So I still have 45 strong eggs.

    :celebrate

    Now I can finally get some sleep.

    I had to laugh out loud at this. It is so something my husband would have done in the past! When I got pregnant with our first I got crazy about the thermostat. I would get hot, then freezing cold. I used to make him get up over and over to change the dang thing. LOL! I think somehow in there (and with the 3 pregnancies after that) I managed to train him to ask me each and every time he felt the need to change the temp. Now we have a fancy thermostat that I can control with my phone, from the comfort of wherever Im sitting. Best investment I've made so far. :D
