    I hope everyone is having Happy Holidays!
    I am so ready for spring. lol

    Engteacher I love the photos of your BJ mama and chicks; makes me think of spring. lol

    Hi Jahvrem, are you in Cincinnati, Ohio? Vevay, IN is about an hour away.
    What breeds of chickens do you raise?

    Currently, I am giving my bj trio a rest and letting them gear up for spring.
    The last couple batches of eggs have not been fertile from the bj rooster I am using.
    I think the old guy just needs a break during this cold weather.
    I have high hopes for this spring.

    You are welcome !
    Hey, anyone in the midwest see the mysterious bird deaths and still more are dying...is a disease ?
    I would be just freaking if I had poultry out there !
    Any word on the cause of the deaths ?
    And are ya ready for spring ?
    I am very very ready!!

    I still have eggs hatching in my 2 little incubators-Cuckoo Marans and Olive Eggers, Blue Ameraucanas and Blue Copper Marans.

    And was just given 14 chocolate and black runner duck eggs, oh what fun !
    They Pip on the 28th...and then I am shutting down the little incubators and setting up and playing with the GQF...getting ready for more RIWs and Javas !!! [​IMG]

    haTHOR I still have not gotten and long johns to send you, I must make a note to do so, and how much will you charge for 2 long john tops ?
