    Sorry to hear about needing any surgery... but glad it was a 'minor' and you are home recouping! (is there really such a thing as 'minor' surgery though??? )
    I would have kept crib notes for you if I'd known you were going to be out a day or two though! LOL I missed one day and thought I was lucky only having 9 pages to catch up on! [​IMG]
    My med of choice tonight is Hot Cinnamon Matte Tea with a healthy dose of Apple Pie Moonshine.... AWESOME mix!!!! though probably not good to mix with your meds though! LOL
    You just have to announce that... my better sense keeps getting weaker and weaker every time I see those LF Black and Blue Cochin babies.... between you and Mama I am having a heck of a time resisting more chicken math here. Even Radioman doesn't help, cause he liked them too! And then they are broody... geesh.... I feel a trip East in my near future.... [​IMG]

    To my novice eye. They look like girls. When I first saw the pictures, I thought they were 5 different chicks, thought to myself, "how lucky IS this guy?!"

    Cute pics! You may have already gotten an answer, but l Last year I had a chick w/crooked toes & I started out making it way more complicated than it needed to be. Finally, I took a small piece of clear scotch tape sticky side up, stuck the foot on top, arranged toes, then stuck another piece over top. I could see if toes moved out of place, and I could easily see to remove excess tape around outside. After a few days, I removed tape and allowed chick to walk around. I ended up re-taping once just to make sure they would stay in pace. There may be some huge no-no in what I did, but it worked for me. And was much easier than trying to splint each individual toe on a wiggly little chick.

    It's been busy around here the last few days, but I wanted to come on here and complain about the enablers on this thread. Thanks to you guys posting chick pics and talking about TSC, I caved. I was doing so well with just ducks! I went in and they had a fresh shipment of bantams. Three were buff bantam Cochins. They came home with me. Then a friend decided he wanted three Amberlinks for eggs. Now he want turkeys. And they need to stay at my place because he lives in town. Tomorrow will be a fun filled day of coop building. Yay! Note the sarcasm.

    It's bad enough I have an issue. Chicken math is contagious.
    Also, in other news, hubby said yes to peacocks. Oh dear.

    That is all. ;)

    Thinking about another Harrisburg class
    She has off days too
    Dr. Hanshaw doesn't like the all in one classes where everyone brings birds. I might could do it with some meaties who are destined for a date that week.
    Yep...see a spot next to the closest tub
    Eww...ducks are a mess regardless of inside, outside or anywhere
    Chad's gonna share his books so Sally and DH can read ahead for the next class. And just an FYI there are now a handful of CPTs already here and more coming soon after the last class. [​IMG]
    Sounds like you wanna come down and build coops here too... I knew it! And the chicken math is like a wicked multiplication table that you never in your life saw coming. Ask ray...Ray in PA....I didn't even want a roo till his enabling self gave me the poorest run down on this beautiful BCM roo, who was the low man on the pecking order between the other roos. AND I only went to his house with the intentions of adding one already seasoned hen to my mix to help the rest get the idea of what to do. Left his house that day with 3 girls and a roo.

    Sally, we need a head's up next time you do something like that...[​IMG] I know how pathetic this sounds but folks on here are more like family than some of my own blood..[​IMG] if you knew my family, you would understand...

    Those of you who have mentioned getting some older birds, I need to know if you are serious, I need to decide who will get tested and who won't, since they will have leg bands after that...I have put up a new folder called available, i will add pics to this as I get them.....lots of young roo's also, I am ok with knowing that they are just for grow out pens....I have older roo's also if you need a certain breed just ask, there's 2 jersey giant boys that are big teddy bears....they run from the serama roo.

    Hmmm.... I may have posted this already, so if I did, please ignore.....

    I am looking for a nice quality bantam Cochin pair, trio or a few pullets. I need them to be young and show worthy as they will be for my son for his 4H birds. My Cochins are just not quite there yet. Color unimportant, but he does not prefer solids.

    Can trade you birds (silkies or bantam orps) or buy outright.
