    Now let's talk about chicken math, and particularly how this disease has affected me. :D As you all may or may not remember I got anxious and bought a cuckoo marans (Chicky) and a light brahma (Lightening Speed) the week before my other chicks were coming. I now also have a chocolate orpington (Puffy), a very sweet Olive egger (Elphaba) who is from GFF's rhodebar stock, so she will allegedly look like a rhodebar, a creme legbar (Ethel) who is miniscule and very friendly, and a surprise blue orpington who is my only straight run chick. I have named him Frank and I'm really, really hoping it's a female. We are all obsessed with Frank. Frank is still extremely fluffy at 2.5 weeks and never stops peeping. So I started out ordering 3 chicks and ended up with 6. I am keeping myself away from any place that has chicks, and have been browsing CL in my spare time looking at babies and thinking things like, you know, I could really use a Swedish flower hen and a couple of lavender ameraucanas. LOL

    We've also been doing a major yard renovation that was supposed to be just one weekend, so naturally it's been 3 weeks and we're about half done. :p Pretty much any spare moment I've had has been spent on the yard. Kids are all good, baby girl had a high fever for some reason a few days ago but it's gone now. Other than that we have been miraculously healthy. :)

    We were supposed to have dinner with my MIL (I am not a fan of hers, that is a long story for another time) and the man she has decided to marry after knowing him for 5 months tonight, but (surprise surprise) she flaked. We already had child care so we had a date instead, and it was great. :)

    manychitlins, sounds like you are having a ball ! nice pick of chicks as well. watermellon, OUCH ! next time use a drop of water or batter, water will dance id its hot. . So, It is now pouring rain here as well. why wouldnt it be ? someone was coming today to mow for me. The baby chick is fine, that is its 2nd brush with death as that was the same one mama pushed away . maybe its daffy ? I am a little better today but DH gave me half a flexaril ( muscle relaxer) last night and it hasnt wore off yet. It is the antibiotics that is hurting me. severe side effects. hoping they just go on their own. no more tetracycline for me !!
