    Congratulations!!! Here's to an easy pregnancy and delivery!!

    I forget, how many buckeyes did you hatch out and how many Hens? How many eggs do you normally get with them?

    Tab--congrats on number 3! Its a unique number but a good one. I know as I had three. Anything after that is just more.

    Adorava--baby pics are expected!

    Rancher--speachless and laughing as usual!

    So I made it through work on thursday, being extra diligent in counting and reading labels. Dead guests dont pay. Came home to freeze locking up the cheeps and pulling waterers in. Up very early for work today (cheeps werent even up) and let them out and ran water to them. Froze again when I got home tonight gathering eggs and locking up. I think the cheeps will be happy when chicken daddy gets back and helps with chicken duties. Means more scratch for them!

    Night all.

    They still use their regular dusting site ..Under our back deck .
    Little did my husband know when he had it built ...that someone else would have it as a favorite spot .
    We put black plastic under there so it is just dirt .& It always stays dry under there ...In Rain , Snow or Sun .
    Im think of enclosing it plastic next year to keep the heat in some for them
    In all weather they go under there & roost & or Dust Bathe (there is a I___I hanging Board under There)( It supposed to be for storing extra boards , etc) They think its for them ! & we dont use it ) Sometimes I put some wood ashes in there as well . I have been useing cardboard ash as we always have boxes for my business that we dont use anymore .

    She let me use the oragel on her once then refused it ever after. The doc gave her amoxicillin for the infection. Right now I've been taking kids chewables because its what I have, at least they taste good. Thanks!

    Annie has blue orps, but I haven't seen her on in ages. Cass do you know anything? Her birds would be better than hatchery.

    Ginny-- I hatched 3 hens and 1 roo (buckeyes from you). They seem to be molting and with the cold we've had brrrrr! I was getting at least an egg a day now they will skip a day or 2 then lay again. I'm going to up their protein and hope that helps them.
