    Okay.

    My best looking MF Girl got attacked by something today. We found a pile of feathers, thought it was a hawk and then she resurfaced! Less her beautiful tail and a big chunk out of her backside. I washed her up and slathered her in triple antibiotic, but i think her intestines were hanging out. I'm worried.

    The good news is: DH was a slacker last night in his chicken duties and we found two chicks left out all night....One of course, was the lil one with the big eye, which again was on deaths doorstep. Eyes closed, very cold, lying on side... put it in the incubator, gave it some infant vitamins and it's back with Broody and doing well again. I was going to call it Igor, ya know with the big eye and it seems to have this lopsided thing going on, but now I believe I will call it Feline as it seems to have 9 lives.

    Y'know? When I was in school, I was in the gifted program. I took my SAT's in the seventh grade, and did better than my oldest sister's best friend (whom was a senior). I have noooo idea where that knowledge went!
    For all the times I have listed the breeds of chicks I have, I just figured out last night that I keep the CRCRX seperate from the list of other Rocks I have. Never once realized that they are rocks too,[​IMG]Duh!

    Ok, let me play devil's advocate here for a second. What does it mean to you when you see an ad for chickens that are being "sold in pairs only"?
