    My Flemish Giant and mixed New Zealand/Californian/Flemish Giants are now for sale. I've got 5 FG's and 6 mixed that are not spoken for as of today. If you want one call me for directions, or we could meet up. I'm in Muskegon but I make fishing trips up north all the time. All the bunnies are hand-held and very friendly. Other than that I'm working my butt off with all this farming stuff. So call me 231-828-5609 or email at [email protected]

    Well the broody count is now up to two. [​IMG] This does NOT help me wanting to hatch a gazillion more eggs/breeds! Shoot! At this point I'd even hatch more of my mutt eggs just to be able to hatch more chicks! At this point, unless I set more eggs, my options are 1...move eggs from the incubator (due to hatch middle of next week) under the broodys. 2....get chicks from BIL that are hatching today and put them under the hens tonight 3.....order eggs/breeds that I want and put THOSE under the girls or 4....put more mutt eggs under them. With options 3 and 4 we'll not have enough coop space come winter for sure unless we build ANOTHER shed and convert the rest of the existing one into a second coop area. DH is already making noises needing a building for the kids' bikes, the lawn mower, chainsaws, and all the garden tools, so MAYBE I should just order eggs before he can get home and talk some sense into me!

    In other news, I got all of my tomatoes and peppers planted today, along with 4 rows of green beans seeded. Last night I planted my sunflower patch. Hopefully my squash and cucumber seeds sprout soon, and I can get those out into the garden as well. Need to get my fence line cleaned up, and some newspaper down over the grass there and get my cosmos seeded still. Have to take advantage of all these warm moist days to make my growing-things-adventure a little easier!

    Today it got nice and I barely did anything. I had a molar pulled yesterday and I have about zero interest in anything. I have to clear some brush, cut down some clump maples, one huge oak, and 3 large cherries to make way for a new 30 x 48 gambrel barn. BTW, does anyone have, or know of a Toggenburg buck for breeding my does near the Muskegon area?

    Woohoo! I finally have internet again! Been down the past week and I've been going crazy without my BYC and MI thread. Got back just in time to see I won the "Guess when 200,000 members" contest, so that is cool! I don't have any BYC t-shirts so I think there will be one on the way soon. [​IMG]
