    Wow, life's little ironies, huh?! That stinks!! Sorry to hear. After many years of remission, I just learned my ulcerative colitis is back and I'll need to go back on medication. I am NOT pleased. Growing older definitely brings challenges, but it sure beats the alternative! [​IMG]

    ChickPrincess, glad to hear Pancake's doing better! Also, I'm fairly sure Amberlinks are a sex link 'breed' and they're all pullets at TSC (at least they are at mine), so I'm sure you have a little girl there. Congrats!

    Alan is up to six regular egg customers at work. I had wondered why the basket is mysteriously emptying itself on a regular basis. [​IMG]

    Heaven help me, I want to go to TSC to pick up scratch feed, as I have a $50 gift card I was given as a gift by some of my colleagues at my old job. I will not buy chicks. I will not buy chicks. I will not buy chicks. I will not buy ducklings either.

    it was 2:30 pm and I somehow found myself done with my planned chores. So I killed 2 roosters and currently have water warming. Numbers 17 and 18 freezer bound since Thanksgiving.[​IMG]

    I don't even have a place to put anyone yet, and I'm sorely tempted. So I can't imagine the will power it would take to resist. I never wanted chicks, but I keep reading everyone's threads and I'm dying. [​IMG]

    I am NOT a patient person. Having to wait another month for chickens is torture.

    Yes! You are right... found that out this morning. So, yes, Pancake is a she and so are the other two freebies I inherited this morning from the TSC hospital box in the backroom.
    I also brought home 12 red sex links, which Pancake has fit right in with. The other two are in a hospital tank here at home but should recover fine. They were both picked on. One has a wound under the wing about the size of a dime and the other has a wound, more on her back, a little bigger than a quarter. I'll treat them with Nustock, but I expect they will recover fully.
    I'll probably bring the red sex links into school Monday for the 1st graders to enjoy for the day.

    Talked to TSC and someone who knew what they were doing told me the yellow ones were red sex links in the wrong bin. I just hope I get 1 pullet from the Speckled Sussex though. Wanted 1 out of 6 now odds down to 1 out of 4.
