    I know that ad. [​IMG] Every time I clicked a link to go to another page it would start up again and I had to turn it off. My son came into the room looking for chicks.

    I bought a bunch of different colored zip ties. They are cheap and you can use them for a whole lot more than leg bands. I know you have to watch that they don't get too tight on growing chicks but I didn't use them til they were full grown. As cheap as they are, you can cut them off and put a new one on that is looser if you need to.

    I hope we aren't going to get into any political discussions here. It could get ugly real fast.

    Thanks for the wing clipping advice. They have been in the coop since May or June. The EEs for about a month. I will try it this weekend.

    Too funny. [​IMG] I think I saw that years ago. Maybe it was a different one.

    I noticed that this thread was number 2 on posts and Old Salt and I were number 2 and 3 for ovations yesterday, lol. How did that happen? [​IMG]

    That's awesome! Both Brad and I haven't had a lot of luck hatching them out. He's still trying, but I'm done till next spring. I did find some advice that said CCLs are very humidity sensitive for some reason. Their advice was to dry incubate them, and then to try to keep humidity to as close to 60% as possible after lockdown. Here's hoping you have better luck than we did and that you can add to the CCL pool around here.

    CCls sound about as difficult to hatch as araucanas!

    Thanks. Bookmarked it.

    Woohoo!!! Congrats!![​IMG]

    Nice! Bookmarked that too.

    Wow. Congrats! I want one. [​IMG]

    Hmm... seems I keep replying to your posts, lol. Auto mechanics use the zip ties a lot and I used to be one. Are you using side-cutters to cut them off?

    The ratings are on the home page of the site if you scroll down to the bottom and look to the right under Backyard Chicken Stats Click on "More >" under any of them and you go to the top 10 screen. Here's a link.
