    I'm the type of person who would much rather have a stomach virus over a cold any day. I thought I dodged this bullet untill 2 days ago when it hit be between the eyes with a vengance. My poor chickies havent been messed with much since I've gotten home and i KNOW they miss it and so do I. But I just don't have it in me to sit out there with them right now. I need a shopvac with a nostril attatchment and a constant flow of hotish liquid to keep the slime formation in my throat to a minimum.

    I hope you feel better soon. [​IMG] There is nothing worse to me than a cold in the summer. Yuck.

    First read-through I thought you said you HAD a shopvac with a nostril attachment - thought you'd found some advice to drain all that nasty stuff out (didn't pay attention to SHOP VAC...lol) and was going to ask you where in the world you found a treasure device like that [​IMG] I think someone would make a TON of money if they could invent something like that (NOT the baby snot sucker bulbs either [​IMG]). Sorry you're sick. I do the same, I always get my colds (usually 2x a year) during good weather - never in winter time for some reason. Feel better soon - your chickens NEED you!! Besides, if chicken soup helps, imagine how much sitting among a whole flock would help [​IMG]

    no... i have found no such treasure as yet...sadly )O: but when I do...i'm going to market it for the genius who devises it!

    I went out with them for a bit, my big boys are finally crowing up a storm...well they're still rusty sound kinda like me right now but the funniest thing was the little OEGB that escaped the masacre of his adoptive mother and 2 sibblings, is in his pen trying to mimic them LOL He's such a pipsqueek compared to the rocks and he sounds like it too..but he's certainly trying! He stretches his neck as far as he can, and he hops off the ground when he makes that teeny little squeeky noise. Then he fluffs his feathers like he's big, bad, and proud! Ohhh they amuse me so...

    Very little more hateful than a summer cold. They seem to linger on for ever.

    Took my kids and my Aunts Grandson to the hands on museum today. My kids are 4 and 7, they listen fairly well...the munchkin at 2 ...not so much. Wore me out to no end, didn't want to even get dressed today but...as my motherly duties insist on me actually caring for and entertaining my kids...i got up and got dressed, my mother insisted I drive..ohh yay >my excitement is unbearable isnt it?< So I drove her vehicle the hour to Johnson City, chased 3 kids around a crowded kids place for 4 hours and then drove back listening to them all complain how thursty, hot, hungry, and crowded they were. I'm ready for bed, the house is a disaster, my kids not bathed and i merely reheated leftovers for dinner. I HATE A SUMMER COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have I mentioned this yet?

    Thank you...i just feel like i've been hit by a steam roller....3 of them really ages 2,4, and 7! LOL I'd soooooooooo much ranter have a stomach thing, at least by now, day 4, i'd be over it. Summer colds do not know when to let go! Anyone who's looking to invest, might i suggest buying stock in popcicle? I've gone thru 2 boxes a day since Tuesday.
