    Good luck with your new ladies, Pharmchick! Take pictures...I would love to see them. Oh, & Rancher, too. He just " [​IMG] " Silkies...haha!

    I Hope you don't have flood issues, because I hear some big rains are coming this evening. My horse and his buddies had to be hauled in early yet again this afternoon, as another round of steady rain moved in. He is a muddy mess. I'll have to clean him off before the weather snaps or else his coat is useless to keep him warm.

    Lynzi - glad your aliens are enjoying the nice weather, but then again it is them that I blame for global warming.

    Pharm - what I am thrilled about is you're doing well. Heaven knows what with all that's going on in this world. It's nice to know your feeling better, even if it meant you got Silkinized. You should see if DH can bring back some hatching eggs from GA. I brought some back from AL. Three of which were silkies. They're long gone.

    Some more good news I found an egg in the BR coop today. [​IMG] Though i suspect it's from one of the SLW's . Still I'm glad.

    I ran a cord to put a light in there so hopefully there will be more to come. The light is on and will stay on til around nine when I get home from church.

    Take care and stay safe,

    Rancher

    Lapeerian - just a shout out to say I hope things are improving and you and yours are feeling better.

    A word on biosecurity......If you are going to quarantine new birds(this is really a good idea!!) remember many diseases are found in feces, so for good biosecurity practices, one should not only separate new individuals,BUT ALSO, change shoes and clothes or disinfect between visiting or feeding flocks. Do not use interchangeable waterers or feeders.

    The more I think about it, the more I'm leaning towards hatching my own! Makes me too worried.
    Anyone know what a cross between a production red hen and a black australorp roo create?
    And is a "production red" a breed in itself? Or is it a catch-all name? I'm confused.

    Well they're weren't out too long as I'm still nervous about the hawks that have been around the one that got a hold of my lavender orp hen before winter. She wasn't injured too badly, and I think she was definitely too large for him to pick up but her whole neck was bare all winter. They were back in the coops early, they were getting blown over out there!

    Maybe one of these days I go out there with my metal helmet and take some pics to post here. [​IMG]

    Thank you!! Thought I had uploaded more of the others but I guess with the all editing I did from my phone some got deleted. I got my Roo from Adora - she has beautiful silkies.
