    I didn't get in trouble for interrupting! I asked questions because I wanted to know answers. AND we had the two top people in the state on poultry...who better to ask. And I got in trouble for dozing, not interrupting lol.

    And who said you have to be dressed to run outside? Heck if it were summer it would have been a whole different story!

    Thanks! It's not quite as bad as it seems. It's just a matter of finding the side of the bird that you are best at hitting the vein for the dominant hand. Was working with two south poles and I had to flip the bird the other way to nail the vein.

    There were more than us at the class. Becky arranged the field portion with the local inspector. It was a very quick turn around. [​IMG] and we were drawing on birds within 24hrs of the call she made. Cloacal and trachael swabs, and blood draw on chickens.

    Plumbing? ugh working on a plumbing issue @ GF's house. Plumbing can be fairly easy. Step 1. wear a belt and expose top of *** crack. 2. find the pipe and look at it 3. holler at it 4. cut it and make it look like it did before with new pipe. ( don't forget the purple primer which dries quick before gluing) If it's copper....that's a PITA. I don't like working copper pipe. Thank God for pex tubing and the simplicity. [​IMG]

    The tablet is a Galaxy by Samsung.
    The plumbing is copper. DH changed enough of it to PVC to put on a shut off valve so I could flush the toilet and wash my hands. Then he got in his 18wheeler, and drove away. Next week he has to tear the whole wall out.
    So come now, fix the shower, tell me if I should just rebuild the whole dang coop, and fix all my landscaping problems. And while idk what you look like, you can be as naked as ya want.

    PVC is a ton easier than the copper. They even make a pex adapter. You take the tubing, crimp an end on it and tie it into the pvc if need be and the pex tubing just slides through the walls. Too chilly to be too naked. Good kilt weather though! Eastern PA Business Journal did an article on me in the kilt last year lol.

    Chicques, you'd totally fit in with my crew of friends. Several of them wear them when we go out. And I'm not just talking to the RenFaire. The guys wear them for our monthly dinners out. My officiant for our wedding is going to wear his, if I can convince his new GF that it's what I want for the wedding.

    I've been feeling the holiday depression the last few days. So today when I went out to check on the chickens...I grabbed the little one and now have her sitting here in my lap.
