    Good morning everybody! We didn't get a whole lot of rain here - lot of thunder & threat mostly. Settled the dust anyway.

    Nice slow day at work & then I'm off for the week - going to make salsa and hot sauce this weekend for Christmas presents. And pick up pecans. And satsumas. And lemons. And kumquats (which are useless in my opinion but we have them anyway - if anybody knows anything decent you can make out of kumquats please let me know)!

    Roxanne good luck on your hatch - so excited for you!

    LOL hey I got an idea for a change of scenery at least. You come here and I'll go there ( trade/swap) spots for a weekend. It would be a change-up for sure, but I think it would be too unfair on my part as I have a lot more heads to tend than you maybe not as many different types of critters but surely out number you. I got LOTS to see after here, I'd hazard a guess of 500+

    Anyway I'm just kidding around with you this mornin, its the cool weather and I'm "feeling my oats" so they say LOL

    Hey go big or don't go at all.

    Ok I got me a small generator on the way so I can get out to the barn and some pen building/dividing for breeder pens, and get them set up in their lovers lair and it''ll be on,like Donkey Kong. I'm gonna be breeding NHs and get started on my Delaware remake project. I'm going for F2s this round Mrs.Kathy has had great success in this operation so far so I hope mine goes as well too. She has made some outstanding looking Delawares so far with her efforts.

    OK I shall holler at you when it get those NHs going and they been together long enough to be bred up pure. I got to "geterdun" as my brother is bringing me my buff barreds down from Ark around Christmas time and he's expecting to be able to bring NH hatching eggs back with him.[​IMG]

    Thank you everyone :) I am hatching silver sussex from texas birds of a feather aka Don Kreitner ...lol long story short looking for some sussex eggs close by, had a great deal, told him about the poultry club trying to get up n' running and found out he was the President of the American Sussex association and that how we all got the sponsor to come help us out. The birds are from his flock he raises and shows up in Texas.

    Thanks Jeff, we actually have some friends in Leesville so we can stop for a visit. Keep me in mind and let me know when you get some, I'm in no big hurry.

    "Go big or don't go at all" -- LOVE that! [​IMG] that is exactly why I ended up with 13 peacocks. We figure at the rate we're building coops & runs, by next summer we won't have to cut the grass in back at all - it'll all be fenced in!

    Thanks Jeff! I'm going to hatch some more RIRs too - do you still have the ones I gave you? The trio I kept is just beautiful - I kept the smallest roo but he turned out to be a big handsome fellow after all & I just love my hens.

    Sounds like an interesting project & that's great how you hooked up -- I have found some of the nicest people among "chicken folks"! I'll have to go look up silver sussex - they sound pretty!
