    I've been to it in the past and was shocked at the awesome turnout they get. It really is worth the drive. I traveled almost 2.5 hours to get there. If I wasn't on vaca, I'd go. Have fun!

    Thanks for all of the thoughts and good wishes for my littles. Surgery went well and we are hopeful! I was ver relieved that her pressure was down in both eyes. So if nothing else. she is no longer in pain. It is so weird to me to see her now with 2 brown eyes!!!

    My oldest three and hubby took such good care of my birds while I was gone. I am so thankful for them!!

    LOVE this!!!

    We have stopped naming ours until we know for sure they are staying. We used to name eery little chick and then get attached to them all. Now the new rule is leg band = name. Once I band them, they are staying.

    I gave up on letting the kids name them...they boys wanted to name them names from their video games that I could never remember...and the miss wants to give them all girl names...and with my luck...we keep ending up with roos!

    Glad her pressure is down! Keep us (or at least me) up to date on her progress.

    Got a question!!!!
    I have a hen that was broody so I decided to let her keep her and the other hens eggs to hatch. It has been 6 days now with 12 eggs now in the coop. all moved around but now she hardly ever sits on them. should I just let her go and see what happens in 21 days or should I bring them in to incubate them?

    Have you candled them?

    I would say this depends on if you WANT a broody or the chicks. Right now, I don't want any more chicks, so we are grabbing up eggs as fast as they can lay them. Of course, that hasn't stopped one of my girls from sitting on nothing at all. She is SO getting a bath tomorrow!
