    Well it sounds like you had an exciting day/evening. I hope you sleep well tonight after most likely saving peoples lives. The poor man might have had Al.....

    It was an ad for Clairol hair dye. "If I only have one life to live, let me live it as a blonde."

    Update on the chicks 2 black orp, 1 white orp/Cr cross most likely, 1 Del 1 Ee and 1 lav orp. Poss. a second EE by the nights end. Only 30 more to go. Tomorrow is day 21.

    Update on the job situation. Called the company and they had tried to call me, but our phone was out. Seems they needed to phone numbers for my previous employers. They were not on the Resume I paid for. So I got that to them and my personal information. Looks like I may have a job soon. I hope I'm good for them.

    ChickPrincess- that is quite the night! Glad you were able to stop the man before he continued onto main road. I agree with Rancher, sounds like Alzheimer's or dementia. So sad.
    We went out to dinner for hubby's b-day tonight, right next to TSC. Unfortunately they were closed by the time we got done. Spring fever- the need to grow stuff and things of all sorts. Seed starting this week! Maybe we will need to stop at lowes Sunday, depending on the half-bathroom repaint/replace status, and I can stop over to TSC again.
    And the from scratch cake was a success. Or at least I thought so.

    I'm pleased to say, the update on Pancake is good. It's been standing now and then and cheeping, and finally took a bit of a drink on its own off of my dd's finger. As long as it survives the night, it should be strong enough to have buddies.
    This one's a fighter!

    Sounds like Very Drunk to me ..Good you Stopped him ..You probably saved a lot of Lives

    We went to TSC too today - Auburn ( Hubby & me ) had a 10% off coupon so we stocked up on layer for a couple months & Got chick feed .
    Asked about Dumor Brand Feed ...Is it their brand & who makes it for them ? Purina does - same thing in the bag..I do love those purina bags though ..
    The same thing almost happened to 2 ducks ..Their food & waters are too big for babies ..
    The top was completely over them ...She / We saw them before she put it down . thank goodness

    The Rome TSC had white leghorns yesterday so I brought home 6. When I got home DH said that I should have got more since they were straight run. Tomorrow we're thinking to send some of our older hens and male guineas to auction. Less mouths to feed and more space.

    Utica TSC had Speckled Sussex Straight run yesterday. It was sooooo hard to walk away!! But I have to many coming in April as it is. We are starting out flock with a wandotte rainbow. My Girls decided that. But if I were to get some and keep one pullet in the flock would it be left out and alone or will it integrate into the flock? ( Chicken Math I guess)

    I like SS. I do have a single SS hen, her hatch buddies were another SS and an Americana, unfortunately they both were secretly Roos. The three were very close, and the hen is lovely, big, beautiful, and she stays out of trouble. She is smart and curious. She sort of stays by herself, but is not the bottom of the pecking order.
