    iamfivewire~ After I read your post, I remembered someone who ordered another breed, but ended up with Iowa Blues, so I went through a billion posts because it was bugging me who that was-- and it was you! [​IMG] Geez. Anyway, they are very pretty and sweet looking. Your chanticler is very soft and beautiful, but it's hard to beat a rooster's plumage, and your EE cockerel is stunning. That's interesting that his pattern is different on each side. He might be able to trick the ladies into thinking that he is actually two different "suitors." [​IMG]

    kabhyper~ My, you sound like a calm, experienced broody hen owner-- You're going to actually sleep tonight! Good luck with the next hatch. [​IMG]
    CCCHICKENS~ That is terrible about the puppies! People can be so ignorant. Btw, you know we can all talk/vent about non-chicken related subjects!
    jchny~ How are Mr. and Miss Bourbon Red Turkey doing?
    bradselig~ It seems more likely that if the eggs came from different states that it has more to do with the place that sent them. However, I don't know all the details . . . I am sorry to hear about your HBR eggs. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hi guys! Playing catchup again, have an event taking place here with my dad.
    He has finally agreed to his heart surgery. We will know more in November, but he told us at dinner last weekend.
    My parents have been married 53 years.
    This is pretty scary but the other option is do nothing, giving him little time left with us. He needs a valve replaced.
    He is 79, will be 80 in January. The surgery is pretty invasive.
    He also had bypasses done in the mid 80s and they have to be worked on too.
    So, it will be an open-heart process. Needless to say I won't be around much [​IMG]
    I am reducing my flocks drastically so I can still provide proper care for them too.
    Am trying to find transport for moms dialysis, with a reputable company.
    If she feels uncomfortable with them at all, then it just will have to be me.
    Everything else I can work out, but the 5 hours 3 days a week will make it very difficult with Dad needing care too.
    I may have to drop Mom off, and go back home to care for Dad.
    Going to do more searches tonight and hopefully find someone.
    Am off to catch up! Hope everyone is well.

    Thanks! They are wonderful too! I have a frizzled girl who follows me around and jumps to my arm or lap every chance she gets..the adult roo will come to me when called at night so I can put him in the coop..too cute!

    Glad to hear Dad has decided on the surgery. Wishing you all the best thru the trying times and don't hesitate to ask for help. Sometimes that's harder for some to do! Let us know how we can help!
    Sincerely
    Mandy
