    you all mentioned the snow word!

    our forcast for this week is nice wheather. Thursday is maybe gonna be around 80 here, just in time for my two silkies to hatch their wee ones. plus I dont, do not, not quite yet, hold of on it. . . . .dont want the snow yet because I think of the hour drive it takes me to get to work and then that drive backk home and that 's" word makes it trickier to drive on 422 while the big rigs are still flying by you at nearly 70, lol

    And Sally, from thhe research I did, Seramas dont breed true to color like other chickens. My roo is from a golden duckwing roo and black hen and my two pullets are from a golden duckwing and silver duckwing pair. If you can research to get that american serama site, you can see that they now show many colors of them. When I first got them their bloodwork for npip, the fellow Jay told me they only allow the white to be used in show, but i am guessing, things are changing for them. I guess where these guys were bred they see them as living art and colors dont really matter, just temperment and their different body shape.

    And i had a hen with a nasty looking but and was almost afraid to take her to get the bloodwork done. The fellow is head of the cochin/brahma club in my area and said it looks like she is maybe just drinking too much water. All their tests came back good so its not . . . serious? I also remember reading an article in my backyard chickens magazine under the questions where someone else asks this. If you get that magazine, read that, he makes some quesses.

    I am in the process of getting a transport box approved by the post office for shipping. SoI believe i can ship some of my surplus pet roo to homes. ok, out of curiosity, how many of you have shipped chickies through the mail? And what does your shiiping boxes look like? And, when you get chicks in the mail, what kind of box do they come in? Yes, I have never gotten chicks from the mail, always from a person or some hatching eggs from someone local, so i don know these things.

    If I am gonna get serious about becoming a breeder, lol, it would be nice to "see" these things.
