    I just got my 2 beautiful Americaunas from Nothingbutbirds. They did not seem happy to go from her nice warm car, and out into the cold. They are fine in their temporary (quarantine) home now.
    [​IMG] One pooped on the car seat as I was putting it into the the Jeep. There is also litter all over the seat now. Too bad the Jeep belongs to my M-I-L. She hates animals. Fortunately, I will have time to clean it in the morning before returning it to her.

    We were without power for 24 hours. Got it back about 7 pm, just as we were walking out the door to go to a friend's for showers/dinner. Still went out for a hot meal!

    My coop was COMPLETELY flooded. Not so happy chickens yesterday, but they were actually happier to be out and about even in the drizzle today.

    Lost the dead apple tree that I asked the yard guy to remove at the beginning of the summer!!!! It took out one of my wash poles, snapped it right off at ground level...the sucky part? It was STEEL!

    My family is in Toms River/Seaside/Bayville/Tuckerton NJ. I am just crying over all the loss in my hometown. My kid sister spent the night up watching as PPL kept trying to push power down a line next to her house......only problem with this idea, a tree was down on the line, every time they pushed power...the tree caught fire...and her dogs went insane.

    My gram lost 4 huge old oaks on her 100x200 lot. One of them down on her concrete front porch, but no damage to the house.

    My mom lost her shed over hers and the neighbor's backyards. She attempted to go to work, no go, as EVERY street in downtown Toms River had trees down on it.

    Sally, hope you can get off the mountain at some point.

    Chad, good on you on making sure that dog doesn't do it again.

    Missy, so sorry to hear of your family in Tom's River, I hope things get back to normal for them soon. **cracked me up thinking how you showed up to dinner, stinky n all!

    Anyone here do the fermented feed for meaties? Will a couple of 5 gallon containers do the job? Do I need some kind of strainer?

    I thought TomsRiver was okay? Well, that is family for you. Never let a mother of 7 tell you what another sibling is doing. She will give the wrong name with the wrong info.
    The chicks are happy to be out this morning. I got to see my two new birds in some light. They are beautiful. I am going to enjoy having them.

    bruce, solution to 3 chicks with no heat lamp? Put them in a basket in front of the woodstove...they slept just fine. Yesterday during the day I put them back in the basement...because they wouldn't stop jumping out of the basket to run around, and with 10 people already in the house....one would get stepped on i'm sure.

    motorcycle....compared to point, it's ok, but compared to here, it's a disaster.

    My girls got their first glimpse of snow this morning. I was trying to open the run and one went out. Another followed. They decided the coop and run were better, and headed back in! It almost seemed like Punky was telling them to stay in! She seems to be in charge!
