    Aw man. No air in the black car (dubbed voodoo. He's always had a bunch of cars so I started naming them..."oh I did this to the Volvo" "which one?" (The black car has been dubbed voodoo, since the fuel management system (kjet) is black magic and trickery.

    My broodies are each down three eggs. What would make them do that? They have plenty of feed and water. I don't think it's a snake because it wouldn't be able to fit back through the wire after eating an egg. And I check on them pretty often. There's no sign of eggs for one; I've found shell pieces under the other, but nothing else. :confused:

    Not sure? I think they're due to hatch on Tuesday. When I candle they look pretty full. It's so, so hot. And the humidity is horrible. I will never again allow summer broodies, unless I have a cool place to keep them.

    Oh man granny. I hope you're feeling better soon or they figure out what's with the headaches and fix you up!!

    ....ugh. Our next house (which will hopefully be us buying a house) there will be some sort of buffer between TV and bedroom. Hubs is watching tv so freaking loud (he was complaining of a headache too!) that I ran into the bedroom with a book cause it was making my head pound.

    Hi all, I have read all the posts up through December of last year and wanted to finish before posting myself but have a couple of questions. I know there are categories and lots of experts on BYC but I like the environment here. I am a country girl from way back and just recently moved back to the farm after living in the suburbs of Louisville for 12 years. When we moved, I did the chicken math you talk about. Went to buy 3 babies in late March at TSC, but had to buy 6. All survived and so far so good. Asked for egg layers since I had no idea and this is what I got. Do they have a breed other than "egg layer"? By the way Granny, I was a teacher in Bedford for a few years just across the river from you.

    Northern Ohio,
    Welcome Busyteach! I am back with stories to tell! But first, [​IMG]for all the bad and smiles for all the good. I missed you all.

    Traffic was as you would think, awful! I somehow found my way into Chinatown which was WAY worse than the Holland tunnel. I made it to the venue and ordered some pizza. BEST. PIZZA. EVER. I met up with the band for one last practice before we went on. We looked like idiots! But in a good way.....

    When we were leaving, I payed the bill. I have NO idea how much it was. I just gave the bartender an 100 dollar bill and said "keep the change." My friend lost her phone and could not fine the hotel key card. She found both in about 30 minutes.

    All I know is that in three weeks I am going to Milwaukee and in four weeks I am going to Snug Harbor.

    Thanks proatar and my post sounded like I am dumber than I am. I meant to post the picture. Will try again. I was only being categorical when I said egg layer. Haha [​IMG]
