    Nag let me check the Pekins in the am/daylight to be sure I have girls. I will have a f&w runner drake I think in a few weeks if you're interested.

    I had a broody EE that took a week to break. Had her in a brooder with just newspaper. She was a stubborn one. But, after her, I put in a Lavender Orp, and it just took two days to break. Don't wait for her to lay eggs again. That could take a few days. Keep her in cage for a couple of days, take her out and see if she heads for the nest box. If she does, back in the cage for another day or two. Good Luck!

    Getting close to getting our new floors in! It's been a lot of work getting it ready. I'm hoping while the guys are working on the floor, I can get some outside work done. Haven't got my garden started yet. I need more hands and more time!

    Strange insomnia tonight. Probably a combination of too much caffeine and worrying about the chicks outside. They're a week and a half old, and they have a box to help hold heat, as well as a secure heat lamp but I just worry about putting them out too soon and having a buck of dead chicks in the morning.

    Anyone want a nice ee roo? He's 8mo old. Nice to his girls and we haven't had any aggression issues with us or the kids. We're trying to get down to one crowing boy and have decided the Wyandotte is prettier.

    I have 10 that just need straps made and attached, and at least that many bags still waiting. Hahaha! At adoptions yesterday the director asked everyone that bought birdseed to bring their empty bags back in. I may be overwhelmed soon.

    All the chicks made it through the night. Today is going to require a lot if coffee though. I was up from 130 until almost 4 this morning. Ugh. Glad I gave my lunch shift away!!!

    I went through the same process. I spent $10 for a pair of Levi's Big Bells. Dad was so mad, "you can get 3 pairs of Tuff-skins for the same price". Anyone remember those awful pants with the double re-enforced knees? It took 3 months of wearing them until you could sit down.
    Did you make a cutting pattern?
    I like to make a heavy pattern out of 3X Tagg paper for repetitive projects. Sometimes I'll even use Masonite for a sturdier pattern.
    I should get busy on that...I have lots of bags to sew and I haven't started a single one. Want to share a pattern with me? [​IMG]

    I didn't make a cutting pattern since I'm dealing with lots of different sizes of bags, and they want the picture to be the front, so most of them are a little different.
