    every thing looks so neet and clean. My poor yard looks beyond repair. It makes me ill thinking of all the work i have done out there and now it truly is a jungle. My tractor will be ruined if i try to mow it. I mow all the acres i can. If i hire someone to bush hog it i can say by to all my small started trees . All my life i have wanted a yard like this. am unable to tend it now that i have it. It is heart breaking. I better change the subject before i talk myself into a good cry. LOL I need suggestions on what to do with my older hens. they are still laying a couple have bare backs. Not 100% sure its from the rooster . mites maybe ? He has no nails just small spurs but he is so very clumsy. he falls off more then he climbs on if thats possible .

    I know i am running my mouth a lot but i dont feel like doing anything else. LOL talking about my driving lic. brought back a memory.. When i was married to my first husband and after my daughter was born. He wouldnt work and help me support the family. we were living with his parents. I paid them $10 a week for a 68 Plymouth fury 3 for 10 weeks. awesome car. I still have the title but thats another story. anyway after the car was paid for I started saving for a home. I had about $500 saved and went to work. when i came home my money was gone and a place was rented. My wedding rings were gone as well. I didnt care. Going to the new place i was so very excited. til i got there anyway. It was infested with roaches. It was a trailer ,in a park and it was about 10x30 ft. curtains on the windows were ripped and dry rotted. I asked the park owner if i may take them down. he said yes and i stored them in a closet. That night as i lay my baby down the roaches were dropping from the ceiling into her crib and crawling on her face and bottle. I made him get up and take me to my mothers. In the mean time, the owner put a warrant for my arrest out for stealing his curtains. back to the driving lic. and how woman was treated. My ex asked if he may take my place and they took him instead to jail and locked him up ! it cost $40 to get him out. I was working at the waffle house and he came in there to eat. I was the cook. LOL Moral of the story, be careful of who you treat like crap. It can and probably will come back to you. [​IMG]

    Brought my baby roosters to my first swap today. Marked the sussex roos at $3, and mixed at $1. Sold five babies and 8 eggs for $12. :lau

    Got home and took the kids to sonic for lunch. Got back and the babies still had shade and water. I laid down for a nap, and when I woke up they were all dead. :hit :hit I can only think it was the heat, but I'm still in shock. Poor little things. :(

    I wish there was something i could say or do but i dont know what that would be except I have made mistakes more then once resulting it the death of them. and i am so sorry. Please dont be hard on yourself. them being roosters , It saved you from doing something even harder down the road.

    It does seem odd that the heat would do them in. babies liking 100 degree.
