rofl!! Someone woke up on the wrong side of her tiny bed today lol! Oh, how funny :-D

Lori, yes, they're big and yes, they're hard to find.
Rinda, yours are beautiful :-O I truly want some so so bad after May.

Is Newcastle this weekend? I've got Malay eggs set already in a staggered hatch that's going to last like 8 days. I still can't bear to let any go to waste though. I'll have 4-5 eggs by Saturday-does anyone want them?
Oooh Ooooh Oooooh! I would! I am not sure what my sched is - something about a zoo snooze this weekend, but it could be Friday (hope so!) But I am sure we can work something out...

Chicken math has got the best of me. I now have 50 chicks in brooders and 34 eggs in the incubator. I have been building coops/pens like crazy...

LOL YES another one converted to the Chicken Side...

Dusti you can have first pick of the ducklings. They will be hatching easter weekend if I don't mess them up. I've only done duck eggs one other time and they didn't do so well, but they were auction eggs, too, so I know I may not have been to blame. They mostly made it to lockdown but only 5 out of about 20 hatched.

IT HAS TAKEN ME AN HOUR TO CATCH UP AND i'M STILL NOT FINISHED. i JUST SCREWED UP AND HIT QUOTE BY MISTAKE. sOUNDS like everyone had a great time and got some great birds. I'm really jealous, butwill try to go to the Checotah auction.: I may end up doing that, but they all seem to be content- i hope to make them a much bigger run and coop and use the tractor for silkies, but they are settling in. Ginger has laid 3 eggs, should i save these for you? I am dating them as i collect them. Grettle hasn't yet, maybe the goose taking some feathers shook her up a bit. Dwight sounds like a beautiful guy- those English Orps are so FLUFFY!


Well, just lost my BR, Barbara, dang, i knew it was coming, as her comb was hinting getting darker and darker- sigh.. i hate losing them

Sorry about Barbara. I thought maybe she was getting better, because she got out of the tub and came up and started tallking to me. I always thought when their combs and wattles were bright red that they were healthy?



that is true on comb color, bright red is good, but that morning her comb was deep red and i could hear her squeaking as she breathed- seen it alot lately, although she wasn't thin, like some of the others I have lost- when i see the kind of poop she had its a red flag also- its been a rough winter for my birds



Galahad is still having vent problems, has anyone dealt with a rooster with a prolapse? last nite it sure looked like that

ok! Looks like I will be zooing it on Friday, so should make the auction on sat if they are having one. It will be the fifth Saturday - so maybe not... but since the first Saturday was pre-empted, maybe so? We'll figure it out. Cool!

I've not heard of that before but I suppose anything's possible. I would wonder about it be some sort of tumor maybe.

It's just as well if there's no auction. The only thing that saved me from getting any at Coweta is there were so many sick birds. We'll figure a place to meet otherwise.

We have been super busy with poor sick babies (human ones). I haven't been able to keep up with posts. I went to the auction in Blanchard. So much junk there. By the time they did the junk and eggs I was beat. I only got to see the chicks auctioned. No adult birds. I feel like they wasted time on junk and eggs. I know people like eggs, but it would have been nice if they did some eggs then some birds. Switching back and forth. I have only been to one other auction so I'm not sure if this one is typical. I got 9 Barred Rocks that turned out to be 10. Bonus chick I guess LOL

Blanchard is usually like that. Newcastle will only have a few non poultry items - and usually, any stuff that they sell is poultry related. Maybe only 10% is stuff (and usually much less) - compared to the 60 - 70% stuff in Blanchard.
