    [​IMG] Glad you made it over -- I had just responded to your "welcome" post on the newbie forum!

    TGIF everybody -- I got my Malcolm home today (my Cocker Spaniel who tore his ACL tendon) - he's been sleeping all day long but doing quite well - the vet who did his surgery has been doing some new things since a seminar she went to 6 months ago -- he has no splint or bandages- just stitches -- which will come out in one week, not two -- he is to start on small walks immediately - just after his surgery yesterday they put him in an ice pack for several hours & then some sort of circulating pack thing -- he seems a lot more alert than Winnie did when she had this same surgery last year, so - so far, so good!

    Hope everybody has a great rest of the day! We got a chicken boiling down to make chicken & dumplings for supper here, & picking up pecans!

    Jeff, I am happy to report that my chicken isn't an "egg eater." The day she had yolk on her comb there was only one egg in the nest, but since then I have had one egg per chicken, so it must have been what you said about a soft egg that she ate.

    That's so interesting about your Malcolm's ACL surgery. My daughter in NC had her dog operated on about three weeks ago by a vet that only does ACL surgeries. It was the same for Libby, ice pack the first week, then heat packs and massage and no bandages. She takes limited walks but is doing well and loves the massage. This surgery seems to be more common now, but it was very expensive. Hope he continues to improve.

    Todd Graves, owner of Cane's Chicken, often sponsors educational programs. You might try that.

    Had a possum in the neighborhood. First it was living in a neighbor's BBQue pit, then another neighbor'sBBQue pit, then mine. Ran it off with the "jet" setting of my water hose, then it moved to a neighbor's wood pile. Ran it off again. Finally, it began living in a jar on my back porch. I know these creatures can hurt my girls and my dog was waking me up barking every night when the creature would come out of the jar. It had knocked over the plant stand on top of the jar. So last night I put a cement stepping stone over the opening of the jar, but couldn't remove the plant stand without getting my hand too close to those teeth. So I duct taped the plant stand, stepping stone and jar all together and hauled that thing far far away to an open pasture and released it. I just couldn't shoot it. Here's my duct taped contrapcion. At least it's gone. Fortunately, I lock up my girls very predator proof at night and put away the food, but I figured it was just a matter of time before that thing hurt a hen, or dog or cat or granddaughter. Good bye, good ridence!
