    I plan to make the journey. The 3 1/2 mile trip will be grueling, but with my pioneer spirit, I think I will make it.

    With the panel laying on grass and wearing gloves, put the bolt cutter on the wire to be cut as far back in the jaws as you can. With one handle on the ground, use both hands and some body weight to push the other handle down. That's what I do when I have to cut a link out of a big chain. You will probably fall on your nose, but it will cut.

    Another way is to put one handle in your armpit and pull up on the other handle with both hands. Might want to pad your armpit with a folded up towel.

    Alternatively, you can do the damsel in distress number with a neighbor.

    Be sure to dull the cut edges with a file or you will slice yourself to the bone.

    I will talk to Doug Akin and see if I can set up an area for the Indy BYC bunch to bunch up.

    Thanks, Brad and John, for the suggestions! I especially like the "damsel in distress" one, although in my case "crone" would be more appropriate. [​IMG]

    Four months?! Wow, I think ours were last in the spare room around 7 weeks and we were so glad that it was the last time! That reminds me, I need to call and schedule carpet cleaning...

    My silkie girls layed 2 eggs today, finally! Should I leave them in there and see if they will sit? I don't have an incubator.
