    I like to sneak into the coop in the evening when everyone is peaceful and sleepy and pet my girls

    So sorry :hugs I've got a wheezing chick. I separated her, and I'm praying she makes it, but it's not likely.
    You are very talented! :) I agree with the others. Cut back to 2 normal cups of coffee each day. Try a melatonin supplement with chamomile or sleeytime tea at night to help you sleep. Also, google the benefits of lavender essential oil. I made a mist, which I spray on my sheets, my face, and my body to help me relax for sleep. Lavender increases blood circulation, eases headaches, relaxes you, and has MANY other benefits.

    Beautiful!!! TFS! =)



    How are you?



    While I appreciate the compliment, I cannot accept it. I don't have an excellent memory (ask my kids lol). I go page by page quoting and responding. I do want to make sure I at least respond to what it directed at me, but I also want to be supportive and encouraging (except where Alaskan's incubator stacking practices are concerned) to all of you as much as I can. =)

    [​IMG] I feel so sorry for that one hen calling her roo!!! [​IMG]



    Now, that's an idea!!! Let us know how it works if you try it. You could sell that information outside of OB/GYN offices and be rich beyond your wildest dreams!!! [​IMG]

    More eggs?!?!?!?!? [​IMG] Will he ever learn?
    Oh, I answered my own question when I said "he". [​IMG] JK. All chicken ppl have a hard time slowing down on getting more chickens; well, most of us anyway. ;)

    Very well done!!!



    I don't, but I would do that with my Bantam Cochin Frizzle hen if I could. =)



    I like guests too. Too bad for me that I married a very private loner. lol But God has blessed me and DH understands me, so we compromise. =)



    Yay!!! [​IMG]

    Good advice here. See what you can do. =)


    Feeling a bit better. =)[​IMG]
    Snoodle ate one of her eggs. =([​IMG][​IMG]
    I lock down my three eggs in the incubator tonight. =) This is the hard part for me, leaving the eggs alone and not fretting too much about them...[​IMG]
    Have a philosophy paper (1500 words, not including quotes) due tomorrow; [​IMG]
    not sure I'm going to be able to get it in on time, but asked the teacher not to give me a zero for it since I was in the ER the other night/morning. We'll see.
    Hope everyone has a really good day!!! Take care of yourselves and each other!!!

    I know what you mean. Free ranging was supposed to be easier b/c I didn't have to build pens....several losses, a molting hen getting over-mated, and so many times that the kids chase the chickens around, losing eggs, etc. Free ranging is very hard work.
    Are you planning on building pens? I prefer free ranging, but I don't have a high enough hen to roo ratio to do it.
