I am not a crafty person and have no idea what that is but it looks like an awesome present.
Currently unemployed myself, searching for part time but no luck so far.
It's a cricut maker. I just found out about these things a few weeks ago (From someone on here even!). Best thing ever!

Good luck on the job hunt. It's a really tough market right now. It seems like the only people hiring are fast food, convenience stores and Walmart :/ Keep an eye on this page:

A friend of mine pointed me here and that's how I ended up with my job. It's constantly changing. A lot of stuff on there you have to have some kind of degree but there's also a lot of good ones that end up popping up that you don't. I'm a "semi-skilled laborer". For the most part, I clean bathrooms, cut grass, pick up litter, empty trash and paint. Just depends on what the park needs done. No degree needed, just had to take a civil service test.

We had to sell out, the family farm was auctioned off after my inlaws passed. We made the choose to not stay there and ended up moving north to mifflin county.
Love it here but we are now isolated away from family and attempting to start over.
We bought 10 acres. Old 100 year old place that brings with it the problems of being old but it is 100% ours, so very worth the hassles.
I believe you are referring to the hedemora pen, great birds just wish I could of spent time working with the breed before life changed.
I forgot you moved. Silly me. I hear you on upkeep of an old property. :oops:

Are you willing to travel to State College? Most of our empoyees here are from Lewistown area. People in State College only want service jobs. Most people working in production lines are from Lewistown, Altoona, etc. You may be able to find someone for car pool. I used to do the opposite thing when I worked at Lewistown though.

It all depends on how much they pay you. :gigI know several people living in your area work part time at State College for at least $22 per hour. And because so many people are doing it, lots of them car pool. And most full time workers choose to work 5am~2pm, so they can go home to pick up their kids from school. I'm so used to a empty buidling after 2pm now.

Three eggs in four days! :highfive: I am so happy!! I’ll be happier when I can stop collecting them “just in case.” :lol: I really don’t expect to get through the winter without chicks. I swore I’d keep a dozen eggs on hand as soon as they began laying again.

In Delaware county PA:

I am looking to rehome 3 Faverolles pullets. 2.5 months old. They are suspected IBV positive so would need to be either housed alone, or housed with others who are positive or vaccinated, for next 6 months or so. I believe they had a mild case -- just an occasional sneeze. They also had coccidiosis, but that has been treated and resolved. The new owner would need to have corid on hand for relapse.

Their little beards and cheeks are growing in, and they are super cute.

I sacrificed one chick and had a necropsy to get an idea of what they had. By the time of rehoming I would have results from a full workup of respiratory viruses, so I would know if they are positive for anything else. So far they are negative for MG/MS and a few others.

Obviously free of charge....

Found a home for the Faverolles.

Now I am looking for some hatching eggs to try again. Does anyone know where I can get some hatching eggs for

--Appenzeller Spitzhauben (silver spangled)
-- Mottled Houdans

I think I might give up on the faverolles for a while, unless someone has breeder stock.


Thanks!
