    Is there any chance my bald spot will fill in with feathers so I can adjust?

    I have some slow to feather chicks...........the most interesting thing to me is they are all from the same "family". My Ameraucana Roo over my large Orpington girls. Half of the boys are seriously slow to feather, and the other half are stunningly feathered. [​IMG] I feel so bad for them in this weather.......yes, it is still cold here.

    Have you guys seen the thread about little Nan? I wish there was a section dedicated to these little ones so we can keep better track of them and learn more about them. Nan is over nine weeks old and just now seems to be growing out of her first week fluff. Many people say they don't live long, but I've heard of so many who just appear to be really late bloomers. It's so hard to keep track of them all, though.

    *snort* mumbles about nice cool weather


    I am ready to house swap with ya for a bit...........at least until it warms up here.



    My garden has a serious case of failure to thrive - I am sure it is from the freezing night temps. DH laughed at me when I said something about running a heat lamp to the garden. [​IMG] Spinach is the size of my thumb pad and it has been in the ground for 5 weeks.


    My tomatoes that were working on their fourth set of leaves.............they froze last night.........guess 25 was a might too cold for their "greenhouse" [​IMG] Course who knew it would be so blasted *nice* last night.

    We still have the heat running in the house [​IMG]




    BUT I will take cold over tornadoes (hugs Red).
