    Hope they nicely for you,,, some of my " not so good " girls lay the nicest eggs,,, seems nearly impossible to get it all in one bird with this breed. Some work on egg color, others want the perfect bird and lose egg color, hard to get the best of both worlds Good luck with them,,, you'll like their personalities !

    Ugh. Feel like I can never get ahead with soap or candles. I just made a dozen candles, but nine are spoken for!!! Plus, soap? Double UGH! I have three scents that only have two bars left, one batch with only one, one batch with none, one with only four. I think I'm going to have to make double batches or even triple batches of some of them, like the cucumber melon, oatmeal milk and honey and honeysuckle, because I JUST made batches of those, even a double batch of the OMH and they're already out or very low! If it didn't cost over $100 for an extra set of molds, I'd be buying another set just to keep some stuff in stock, but my wax is getting too low for comfort (maybe 20lbs left, if that?) and THAT's about $100 just for the wax, and that's more necessary than extra molds. :/

    Well now, that's scary. It's like you are in my head reading my thoughts....

    Si! Penta. I got yer txt... you get mine? I could end up by Cabela's as soon as tomorrow. Lily was acting a little crazy today, I thought it was the winds, now I'm concerned that her 'date' didn't take and that I've got to get her bred again. I wasn't home today and couldn't watch her behavior.

    For those of you who own an iPad, is it worth the extra $100 for the newest model with retina display? Or go with ipad2? Considering buying one....

    Thanks Ray! This is the one coop I can just relax about already and just enjoy them. Don't care if they have extra toes or if their combs aren't perfect. They are going to be in with several other breeds of hens and a cochin roo for company.

    MC, I think it will depend upon your doggie's previous 5 years combined with his breeding. If he was a guardian dog for his former family, he will adapt to yours. Based on our two adoptees, figure at very least a month onleash and see how he bonds to you. A rural dog used to freedom is going to want to roam further and faster than a city leash dog. If you don't want to shock, you could try a really long leash/tie wire. It really all depends on the dog. I think you will get a good handle on how it is going to work out in about 4-5 months. It took ours a full year until they fellt like they owned the place; even then the 6 yr old we have does not have the ownership of the home like the 15 month old we had. Again though, it may be a factor of their previous environment. It was hard for a city leash dog to learn to own a wide open property.

    Blarney, wave on your way to Cabelas. Avoid the place on weekends though-- it's mobbed!
    Found a rehome for our FBlueCM roo. Time for the young black one to step up and take over the flock so we can hatch blackies!
