    I've been told they're the best for baking. I couldn't tell a difference. I want waffles now, though.

    lol, they say an egg is an egg. I have to wonder though. seems like it would depend on what they eat. I am having a hard time finding out about this duck. if they eat grass ect... guess time will tell. she is still giving me dirty looks. hahaaa wish i had an alarm clock. drs. at 8 am.

    Granny, ducks are like chickens. They eat pretty much everything. Green grass or lettuce or duckweed floating in her pool will get gobbled up. She'll eat insects and small animals if she can catch them. Not much for meat off the bone, but I think it's more because they can't pull it off as easily as a chicken. Hope your appointment goes well and you get some relief.

    Not sure about medications for ducks, but they do need/will eat grit, same as chickens.

    what measures a persons worth ? Is it the money they have in the bank? the people they call friends? the good deeds they do ? Perhaps it is the memories they leave behind. maybe its measured by how much they are missed. the legacy they left behind. I think it is a simple touch. a warm hug when you are feeling down or a pat to say good job. maybe a look. A look that says i am watching out for you or I am afraid ,comfort me. It is always the look of love. it is always the touch of love. It is always the hope of love that measures a persons true worth. without love in your heart you are but an empty shell, worth nothing. I am a millionaire. I miss you mom. heart emoticon 3-1-1934----5-5-2014

    Murphys law today. good news, Robert only has mild scoliosis his pain is coming from the calfs. that has been ongoing since birth. he knows the drill. My surgery was a fail. everything is back to square one. the bone has crumbled, the ach is torn, the spurs are back tons of inflammation and fluid. not a candidate for more surgery making me a cripple. breakfast was rubber eggs , dog destroyed dog bed . green fluff every where. socks missing , paper every where. that will teach me to leave her. Pretty sure i will be selling my serama flock. One tried to hatch last night and i crushed it to death in my hand.

    Good news for Robert. Not so good news for you. [​IMG] Is there at least something they can do to help you with the pain of your foot? Maybe some sort of a soft brace?

    Giving up your Seramas.... My first thought is NOoooooo! It took you so long to get them and they really are fun little birds. BUT, thinking on it, you haven't gotten much enjoyment from them, and plenty frustration and disappointment. They do require extra care, it's not easy to put them in with the others, and they are a source of extra worry for you. Might be a good idea if you can sell them. Use the money to buy Frosty a new bed. [​IMG]


    Spring is here and I know because my big dog is chewing holes in herself. I noticed last week the skin on her back legs getting a thick, kind of swollen look, which is a sign the trouble is coming. Checked her all over, no holes, and started her on Benadryl. Well, the night before last, she chewed on her back end, which I am treating, and last night, put another sore on the base of her tail. [​IMG] Guess it's another vet visit for us. Past 3 or 4 years she has ended up with huge abscesses, and I haven't found a good way to prevent it. I think those cone-head collars are cruel for long term, but it's also cruel to put her through more surgery to clean up the infections. We'll see what the vet says.

    I'm downsizing, too. Growing some pullets out over the summer. But by September I'll be 20 or less in both flocks combined.
