    I dont have feed for them even for tomorrow. I have cracked corn but the seramas cant have that yet. But if your speaking of yourself ol mare then no, I wont take your money. [​IMG] If i can sell something tomorrow I will get the food, if not i will give them away . I shouldnt have something if i cant afford to take proper care of it. Dinner was good. My DD baked the chicken with a can of mushroom soup. the boys went looking for some morel mushrooms and came back with turkey foot ! hahaa For those that dont know, It is a different type of fungus that grows on trees. white rice and green beans. yum !!!

    @ Katbrier, Its ok, stuff works out one way or another. I wasnt really asking for help but i know you guys would if you could. I just feel like all of you are my friends and I am venting or thinking out loud. my brain is swirling and talking about it helps me a ton. I cant talk to my husband he doesnt seem to understand a lot any more. It has been many years since i have been in a spot like this and being totally honest with all of you. The chickens i sold the other day, I made 32 dollars, with what i had in my pocket, I bought cigarettes and milk. I could have used that money for chicken feed but this nasty addiction gets me every time. So dont feel sorry for me.

    I hope I can write this the right way. I do feel for you. You make me laugh. I find you kind. I see you as someone who faces life, rants, and goes on, and it's admirable.

    This is your thread and you're "allowed" to think out loud and share your hardships. I'm glad sharing makes something feel better even if it doesn't change the facts.

    One of which is that I wish your life was easier. I have a tender spot for people, especially when their lives brighten mine.

    And that's just me speaking out loud.

    I'm off to bed; I hope tomorrow brings you some sunshine.

    Ol mare, thank you. You have a big heart. [​IMG] If it comes down to it i guess i just wont pay the electric . I have never missed a payment. Although i did forget to sign my check last month. hahaa My sons worker has been doing my checks for me but she wont forge my name so that one got mailed without and sent back to me. At least that way i can get all the things I am needing. I will then hope for some help with the electric. @katbriar Your words are so beautifully written. Thank you as well. My favorite thing in the world, making people laugh or at least a small smile. It will be nice to get back to that place.

    I have a chick, well, my grandson has a chick that i just happen to take care of every day. I dont remember when it hatched but it was the only one from a failed incubator. I have to guess a couple months any way. It was an assisted hatch and very runty so of course my GS picked it as his. It has never been healthy and i assumed it would be a failure to thrive chick. It is failing to thrive but the dog gone thing wont die ! I keep checking it every morning and there it sits in its little corner still fighting. Had it been mine i would of culled it but with GS involved it is hard to do. It is a cross between gl polish and a phoenix rooster and is still the size of a newborn chick only with feathers . the wing feathers drag the ground. they are growing normal. well, when we moved the seramas to the cabin he came too. he has been through 3 sets of babies that has all outgrown him. when we moved him it seemed like he was under stress. his breathing became very hard. watching him struggle i prepared my gs for the worse. With tears in his eyes he sat with him for a couple hrs. feeding him wet mash and hovering him. This am he was the same. wing feathers dragging and pulsing up and down. I couldnt figure why he was still alive so I sat with him for a while. To my shock and amusement i realized it wasnt him fighting to breath but his but hole slamming shut that was causing all the movement in his little body. [​IMG] . I started him on corrid.

    I am SO glad they got you in so quickly! I know it can be hard to make the call to ask for help (been there myself) - good for you for making that call. The total benefits can vary quite a bit from one household to the next but you'll know for sure how much you'll get after your appointment.
