    I hope everyone had a great Easter!

    Here's some Easter themed quotes...

    "
    The moon and stars they wept​
    The morning sun was dead​
    The Saviour of the world was fallen​
    His body on the cross​
    His blood poured out for us​
    The weight of every curse upon him​

    One final breath he gave​
    As heaven looked away​
    The son of God was laid in darkness​
    A battle in the grave​
    The war on death was waged​
    The power of hell forever broken​

    The ground began to shake​
    The stone was rolled away​
    his perfect love could not be overcome​
    Now death where is your sting?​
    Our resurrected King​
    Has rendered you defeated​

    Forever he is glorified​
    Forever he is lifted high​
    Forever he is risen​
    He is alive, He is alive!" -Kari Jobe​

    "Because He lives​
    I can face tomorrow​
    Because He lives​
    Every fear is gone​
    I know He holds my life [and] my future in His hands​

    Amen, Amen​
    I’m alive, I’m alive​
    Because He lives​
    Amen, Amen​
    Let my song join the one that never ends" -Matt Maher​

    Wow, I feel sore from just looking at all the work needing to get done. Looks nice, so what is that price in American $? Guess I better buy a ticket now, oh I loved the mustard yellow and blue room, lol.

    She quit eating and drinking on her own. My first batch of chickens all seem to have done the same thing around the same time. This one was in the house all winter because she was stunted so I doubt she picked something up. I had taken previous ones to the vet and the only thing we could ever come up with is some kind of genetic defect. I've had her on antibiotics for about 5 days now and I've had to tube in food and water. I went through it before and so far none made it despite my best efforts. As long as she'll let me I'm going to continue helping her eat and drink and when she shows me she's had enough then I will let her go. I don't want to, but whatever is going on I haven't figured out a cure. I've had numerous fecals done, had them checked for egg binding (she's never layed probably from being stunted), and I regularly spray and check for bugs. And it's all one group...all my other ones (knock on wood) have never showed the slightest sign of illness. [​IMG][​IMG]

    You might be right on the genetic thing since its not affecting the rest of your flock.

    My hens are driving me crazy with their broody behavior. I had one broody give up today, after being broody for almost four weeks (I ordered chicks, but they won't arrive until the 8th). Im dissapointed to see that she threw in the towel.

    I have another hen who just starting brooding today. Last week she and her sister hid a nest of 14 eggs from me. I call them the evil twins.

    I took their eggs and gave them fake ones, but only one of the hens is now showing broody signs. Fingers crossed somebody is broody when the chicks arrive at the post office! Lol.

    I hope it all ends here one way or another. I can't handle the pressure and I hate to see them suffer.
