    I have been busy today snapping photos off ALL of the recent hatches. I have (gulp!) 43 chicks in my laundry room!!! And several more hanging about. And 16 polish in the incubator. Good grief! What was I thinking???? Oh yes, I wasn't......

    Who here is on FB? Look me up to see all the pictures! https://www.facebook.com/Mama2my4monkeys

    LOL! So several of us have had fun with our babies escaping. Anyone have a good way to catch them (other than a fish net. I do think I will get one. Just don't have one YET)??

    Well, I checked. Not only am I not the worst chicken owner because my babies don't come when called (yeah, a lot of ppl on here made me think I was terrible), but I discovered that a fish net is the best way to catch a chicken. I am now going to get one ... And catch my husband before he gets into the fridge.

    Question: how does one 'sleep all the way home' on a motorcycle? Does it involve a bungee cord? Did I read that right?

    Sicky chicky is out with a broody hen, he made vast improvements today and so we put him in with the Barred Holland broody, who has so far been amazing with chicks.

    They are having the swap, sale, thingy in Sharpesburg, MD again in September..........

    This place has a pretty extensive list of shows: Exhibition Poultry[​IMG] Magazine. exhibitionpoultry.net It is free and very educational too! They talk about black genes in this issue, and GMO small grains.

    I bought a telescoping bird net at Petco. Its great to catch them as teens and younger. You know before they act like they like you, for food :)
