    ya, I dont know that brand. probably not around me. the flock raiser has 18% protein. I think its a dollar more per 50lb. bag but baby, adult, seramas all can handle it . And my guineas used to. Did i tell you guys the coyotes didnt get them ? yup, they are living down the road. been a yr. since i had seen them. neighbor has them.

    Morning, y'all. Granny, how is that baby?

    The weather changing like it has gave me a full-out cold. I'm so congested and pitiful. I need a hot toddy. ;)

    GOOD MORNING ALL Busy day yesterday. Got the chicks all settled. Here's what I ended up with, 15 silver laced Wyandotte roos and 26 pullets (1 extra) 26 australorp pullets (1 extra) 11 light brahma pullets ( 1 extra) and 25 cinnamon queen pullets. Total 103 chicks. Not 1 doa and all doing nicely. LOVE LOVE LOVE Cackle hatchery. Nothing like using pullets for packing peanuts. Have never had a hybrid chick before. Those cinnamon queens sure are loud and make very strange noises. Everyone running around eating each others toes.
    Got that room paneled now just have to get the molding up and paint. Nephew gone for a while off to see parental units or in my brothers case eunich yeppers he has been caponized.[​IMG] So as I am taking chicks out of box dipping/dunking heads into water and making sure they drink on their own I look down to discover 2 chicks on my shoe and 2 other one surround my ankles and checking to see if socks/flesh tastes good. They ar eso funny have no breaks go full bore until they trip or run into something and then take off in the rebound direction. Thirsty little bugger this batch was by the time the last one was dringing they had gone thru over 1/2 gallon of water. I have 4 -1 gallon waterers with cider vinegar in the water and 4 1 gallon feeders. NO ONE goes hungry at my place.

    Granny......... my buddy is doing good. They did take half of his one foot. So we voted and are going to have him help tamp dirt around the fence poles as he now has a built in tamper. Also informed him next time he put himself into a sugar daze/stupidity not know what is up we are going to take him and have just ONE toe nail tattooed on his stub. Also now if he has one foot in the grave that means he is dead.[​IMG] His stub/nub looks like a old time squeeze chain purse. They took the foot about the ball of the foot but didn't attach the bone to anything or to each other uffda!!!

    Good news everyone (in best Professor Farnsworth voice - from Futurama) BCY seems to be working at the moment. I am able to type along at a regular speed.

    Beth seems to have a fascination with one of my rugs and insisted on folding/rolling/dragging it around plus shredding it . First time was scolded, second time swatted 2x, third time between 6 to 10 swats. Fourth time rug put in her mouth and rolled her up in it before the beating commenced. Also started eating/tearing off the wallpaper by the front desk. All this on Thursday. There is also no eating a popcicle in front of her turns in to the tasimain devil trying to get some. Ice cubes are also a great treat for her.


    Well that all the news that fit to print. Good luck with the backwards chick and at the swaps.
