Evening all. Been busy working so I am popping in to see whats what. Sorry about your hatch Rancher. I know how frustrating it is to come so close and then nothing. I am hoping my new bators are better than the old one and that I get good hatches. Stony---nice pics. I think my sexlinks could fly up that high if I let them. I have to keep netting over the run otherwise they will get out (or the local hawk and falcon will get in!). My sexlink with the torn up back from the boys is sporting her new saddle in the coop but I dont think the others like it. I took a heavy washcloth and made a saddle out of it to cover her back so the boys wouldnt hurt her so much. Now I have to hurry up and do 4 more for her sisters as they also are getting beat up by the boys attentions. I have to say that the vetrimycin spray I got works really good really fast. Sprayed their backs a couple of times a day and its healing up real nice. Might have to come up with a plan to separate the boys from the girls for a bit so they can get a break. You would think with 19 girls to take care of, they wouldnt be so focused on these 5! I mean, really, they have lots of date options! Other guys would kill to have so many choices! My silkies dont seem bothered by this weather at all. They were hanging out in their run, despite some snow being in it. I took arwin out of the boys coop and put her in with the new girls so they all get used to each other and become a nice little flock. I will be putting them in with legolas by the end of the month i hope. Elron is spoken for and I just need a home or homes for Gandolf and Frodo. Both boys are real nice boys. I hope everyone made out okay with the snow we got. All I know is that its melting now and I am happy. So are the terrorists and divas. They hate the white stuff. Night everyone.
