    This is the pretty porcelain roo I got from pbjmaker, but the night before I picked him up, he got into a big fight with one of her other roo's. [​IMG] He looked pretty awful, like Rocky after the fight! [​IMG]

    He is healing up nicely altho that one eye still bothers me, I am still putting antibiotic eye ointment on it,and neosporin type stuff on his comb (without the "caine").

    Poor boy is so tired of me slathering stuff on him, but he is looking SO much better...every day a bit better

    Thanks Steph....

    I really love the porcelain color, Jill. If I "went bantam", I'd try to get some Porcelain D'Uccles.

    You still haven't moved? When do you think you'll be in your new house?

    Oh man, that is a big mess, we got held up due to firing our handyman, he started charging us WAY too much for doing absolutely nothing, so we kind of came to a standstill.

    Then last Monday in those high winds, our pole barn got damaged, had 1/3 of the roof blown off, and house roof was leakin, insurance wont cover "outbuildings" as they had been going to get back to me how much it was to cover them (at first they told me they were covered) and they didnt. My bad, I should have rode their rears, but was busy. [​IMG] Estimate damage pole barn is $2,000. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So we dont have any one room ready to move into yet, altho we have made great progress! [​IMG]

    Thanks for posting pictures. You should have seen the loser of this battle. It is good they are in different homes now (mine and Jills). I hope his eye gets better. Itty Bitty's (the loser) eye was completly swollen shut the next day - I thought he was going to lose it or something it looked so bad. It's good now and he even has some feathers on his head again. I have never seen such a horrible fight (well the after affects anyway)

    Keep me posted on how he does - and good luck moving into your new home!
