    Hello-Tom, no it has not snowed much in Challis, we do have some snow on the high mountain peaks however. It is a warm November for central Idaho! I am not going to complain. I candled my eggs and the ones I can see well "they are brown" seem o.k. so Far.

    As time goes by, I want to be able to swap roosters with fellow N. Idahoans. I've got a couple large (1 REALLY large) gentle guys that, when the time comes for new blood, I'd rather swap out than see go into a pot.
