    So sorry to hear about the skunk! That's not fun, especially in the cold. The cat cage sounds great though. Never heard of one before. BUt having worked in a vet, we sure could have used one!

    The BLanchard sale sounds interesting. I live near Maude and have only gone there. There's usually lots of chickens and chicks there. I sure need some of those cages to use to take chicks to the sales!

    IT's cold and no fun today hauling water to chickens and horses in the barn,breaking ice on the tanks, but we sure could use some rain. I hope everyone enjoys their day and does something warm.

    I had a question. When I start seeds the plants always get a fungus and die...how do you prevent that?

    Sorry about the skunk and the cats, I have a dog that get's sprayed regularly, I think she likes it actually. [​IMG] As obnoxious as it is to bathe Sasha I can't imagine bathing a cat!

    Wooo Hoo won a fern (maybe) the only thing I've ever won was a gallon jug of grape juice, back when I was a teen.

    banjoe, cool coop start. A question though, did I read your going to cover w/ plastic? If so how is that going to be preditor proof?

    Mjgijax- for now I will hold onto the card box-- after DH moves it, he may try to tell me other wise. For such a small thing I am shocked at the weight!

    Sooner the heritage RIR are a deep auburn red color- not red orange looking like production reds. As chicks they are a burnt orange not yellow like most hatchery stock.

    Banjoe sorry- got caught up in the replies didn't realize that was your coop build. Looks like you are off to a good start

    Cowboy- Fern isn't such a bad name-- have you been to the elementary school lately? It is rather amusing just to hear some of the names the teachers call out.

    Just looked out the back door--- I use to have a few t-post holding some fence set up as a round compost bin. My compost is still there-- but the fence is gone--- asked DH what happen, says was on the mower & the blade caught the fence. He is completely dangerous when on the mower---

    Not yet. I may sell a pair at the next Newcastle. Are you still looking for some adult Cochins?
    I haven't been keeping up with all my mail very well. We still have the Buff trio. The girls are now laying. I keep meaning to send you pics..... where does time go?
