    I resemble that remark. Erath is our own little slice of Mayberry, USA. If'n too many folks find out about us then it'll spoil the ambiance. [​IMG]

    It IS a pretty little town! [​IMG]

    If you rearrange the letters, you get "heart" - sort of says it all, doesn't it?

    Yep - Chippy - my EE hen -- a veritable Methuselah of chickens! - she even still lays a big green egg now and then. I'll get a pic of her & post it - she shows her age but has always been one of the nicest hens- never causes any problems, just goes about her happy way. I have a daughter & grand-daughter of her also. Her grand-daughter is an olive-egger.

    Thanks kuntrygirl, I just ordered 50. I usually get an email myself, but didn't, so I am so glad you posted this. I still have 3 running with the flock from last winter's shipment, 2 hens and 1 roo! they are very large and robust muscular birds, but the roo is too large breasted to mount the hens. I thought of trying AI on them to see what the outcomeofvthe mating would be. I know they come from a light cornish crossed with a white rock and probably crossed back again. If I had a cornish roo, which I don't, I would put him with the 2 hens and incubate those eggs....What do you think? Has anyone out there tried to cross using any meatbird broiler stock and what was the results? Thanks again,
    Celie

    When our ducks were too young for the pond, I put up a hard plastic kiddie pool for then and they could get in, but not get out either, so I put some bricks inside the pool, around the edge for them to stand on to get out. It worked out fine, except the yard area we had it in got messy, from all the water splashing. We now have a deep end on the pond for the adults and a shallow end for the ducklings and their mamas.
