    Hey Carl, I was looking at your website. Everything looks so good. When do your fall tours start? [​IMG]
    Maybe we should have a Parade of Poultry Places like the Parade of Homes tours. [​IMG]

    Quote:Keep your fingers crossed. One of my coral blues disappeared this wk. Found bunches of feathers in 2 spots. Yesterday he was outside the pen waiting to come in. He looked awful. I can see flesh in several spots. Wasn't making a sound he was just standing there never seen a guinea look so sad. He is talking & eating as normal today. I will keep him penned for a few weeks to give him time to heal completely.

    Quote:Thanks Cuban. I was guessing they would show somewhere! Just need to figure out what category & how many opportunities she would have to show. Also how much driving I would be doing to get to shows!!

    How is the pup doing? Did he come home or stay at the vet for treatment? My sister & some of my rental tenants both had dogs make it through parvo. We were not as lucky with parvo.

    Quote:You know tours are open year round with no admission for poultry addicts, unless they are attempting to recover.. But I think that would be a nice idea, share pen, cooping, breeding experience, what does and does not work etc.

    We're here too

    Set up the coop and pen yesterday and put the BLRWs together for the first time with Jarvis Roo. They will stay in this pen to get to know each other while I finish the bigger coop for them. They checked out each other, the new coop and one of the hens (the splash) christened the nest box with one of her eggs. They have a mister snake set up to help keep the air cooler too.

    Jarvis was crowing this morning and the girls were on the nest when we left for the auction. Jarvis has been strutting for the ladies and attempted his duty today.

    Oh, It was a cattle auction in Cushing..they did have a few chicken feeders...the old fashioned galvanized metal ones. Someone bought all three. And it was HOT! the first 10 bales of hay went for $140 a bale....she bought 10. Then the rest ...97...bales went for $117 a bale. He bought all of them. We went to bid on a hay trailer...it went for $4100....we didn't buy it.

    Quote:It looks like they are settling in well, the little roo, is looking better and appears to be starting to fill out. It will take him a little time to figure out how to do his job but should have it worked out by middle to end of Sept. when it starts to cool back off some.
