    Haha-- They're referring to "Ovations." I found a link that explains all the "rules," but doesn't explain what the points are for. I appreciate receiving ovations and enjoy giving them although sometimes I go through phases of forgetting about them. I haven't figured out what they are "worth" as far as points. They must be monetarily valuable since there are so many rules. haha

    As stated in the above thread, your chicks will not be sexlinked because you can't produce a sexlink of any kind with any sexlink female. (Golden comets are a common name for red sexlinks, if you wondered.) I must withdraw my statement on feather growth, as apparently a fast feathering male over a slow feathering female produces chicks that can be sexed by feather growth, not the other way around. My guess is you'll be waiting for comb and wattle growth (or lack thereof) to determine the sex of your chicks. :) Hope the hatch goes well!

    I attended all three systems, private schools, public school, and home school. For me home school worked best. We are now starting the process with our children. There are lots of different types of Christian homeschooling. Check out christianbook.com for all kinds of books. Since you are newer to the process, you may want to look into video school. Bob Jones has great elementary videos that are not a filmed classroom. Abeka is a big name publisher. Saxon is great for math. Then there is Christian Liberty Press who will mix and match publishers based on the child's test scores and parent's preferences. For High School Christian Liberty is nice as they work more like a long distance learning program with the parent as the teacher. The student can graduate from Christian Liberty and attend the ceremony in IL if they want and you want to pay for the trip. Way back when IN had a state wide graduation for homeschool students too. There are many great positives about homeschooling still it takes time on the parent's part.

    Well I am glad you let me know, we are not open on Wednesdays :D That is our day for picking the produce up. However should you have spare time on the trip let me know and I will pop the kettle on!

    I will be attending The Famous Chicken Event (CEA Chicken enablers anonymous) If I don't get to see you Wednesday I am very excited to be meeting everyone there.

    Think you are doing a fabulous job looking after Violet and I am sure she will be up and running around in no time.

    Yeah I have quite a flock. They are silver laced wyandottes, leghorn, EEs, cuckoo Marans, RiRs, and a few other assorted breeds.

    LOL!! I knew what it meant. I just thought it was humorous that at that time I could no longer give someone a thumb's up.
    As I mentioned, I will give the Ovations if I like what you say or you make me laugh. Both are very easy to do. :)
