    Yup, although I prefer "Indigo" [​IMG]. You got that smack out before I could - I haven't touched them yet!!!

    My first time with a broody and her first time with eggs. Had to mark them with a sharpie since the eggs are pretty similar to my Cream Legbar eggs and I don't want to get them mixed up.

    I didn't know you guys were that close :gig
    I just figured something out, though it may not be new. We are in the middle of a vicious heat wave, and there's not a lot more I can do for the chickens. I decided to take a garden hose and soak half of the ground in each pen. They love it! We have some serious group dust bathing going on :thumbsup

    The heat is unreal this year. I take out 3 gallon waterers with electrolytes added and 2 quarts of ice in each every afternoon at about 2. I also make Popsicles from canned corn. I have been turning on the fan at 2pm for them too. They are all completely in the shade all day with plenty of ventilation. They still pant. I feel really bad for them as it is now past 2pn and I am sitting here typing this. Laterz

    yes I did. My lil babies were in the pouring rain. I'm too lazy to go check on them now that the rain is stopped. They'll be fine.

    Looks like it is snowing in your run!

    We are, along with Rossfam, Ruby, both Amy's, Walnut and more. You had better watch your step - you're surrounded! [​IMG]

    I water most of my run every other day if it's over 90. Chooks love to dig down and lay in the damp ground under the leaves.
