    Dang it all if rural king didn't have a new batch of baby chicks today. But I was strong! Just left with bedding and feed. :) Naturewise has this Feather Fixer formula right now for molting season - I think that's what it was called. I'm giving it a shot. I have a couple that could use all the help they can get!

    Wow! This has to be one of the chattiest groups on BYC! I finally caught up at 3:40 this morning, and I am already 5 pages behind!

    Danand - It is irresponsible of Animal Control to simply tell you to shoot the dog. You could miss or wound it and be attacked. You could get in a stand-off or a shooting with your neighbor. It is the JOB of Animal Control to deal with dogs that are dangerous or damaging other people's property. They know you already have a history with this dog. The fact that he is not tied up and has come on your property alone entitles you to have him picked up. Well, that's my two cents worth.

    Tour de Coops - Anyone else going? (I have no chickens yet, so won't have anything to bring disease home to, and expect there will be plenty of other people tromping from coop to coop anyway. Personally, I wouldn't want all those people even walking through my garden, let alone my coop.) Maybe we should wear our Indiana BYC nametags that M2H so kindly designed so we can identify one another? The tour starts at the new store, Agrarian, which is going to carry gardening, beekeeping, and chicken supplies. I expect they won't be a bargain store by a long shot, but they are carrying chicken feed that is non-soy and GMO free, which was something this group discussed awhile back.

    Speaking of the tour de coops... I can't go. But...

    I'm going to be expanding and would like to just look at other's setups. I would LOVE to see the coops/runs/yards of the folks on here that are hatching lots and lots of birds.

    Now I KNOW those have been posted throughout the thread. But it would be wonderful to see a recap all in the next couple of pages.

    I'd love to see how each of you "hatchers" separates out your grow-out areas (if you have grow-out coops) etc. But I'd also like to see anything and everything!

    We could have our own "tour de coops" right here on the thread...and "tour de runs" and "tour de acreage"... I LOVE seeing other folk's handiwork and ideas :D

    Will keep my eye out. Also going to Southern Ohio show in 2 weeks--big show and lots of sale cages. Just let me know what you're willing to spend.

    I see mottled in the shows, don't know if they qualify for breed awards. Splash don't, but I hear that the club is working on getting them qualified.

    Not sure if its interesting to you, but the Chicken Chick just posted a recipe for something she calls Molt Muffins. You can search for her on FB or just the internet.

    Have a good time with them. I bet they love coming to see you and all your animals!

    I know we have talked a lot here about making food at home. I was reading the Hobby Farms magazine called Chickens and they had several recipes and options in the current edition. Interesting stuff.
