    Super congrats that the illness worry is DONE! Happy ending are wonderful.

    One of my happy childhood memories is butchering a layer, and giving all of those yolks to the new outside/ranch kittens. I still rememeber one kitten grabbed one and trying to run off with it to eat it by himself. That kitten though was still too much kitten and not yet a cat, so tripped over its big kitten feet and the yolk burst all over its face. :D


    I forget, why are you separating them? End of breeding/incubating season?


    Well, I am further north, so my swallows have only been here a day or two, and it is rainy today, I am not sure where they are hiding. I don't yet know if all of my boxes will be filled, or what kinds I will get. I get three kinds of swallows. Maybe four years back something must have happened to my swallows over the winter since SO few showed up that year. It was very sad. :( But, the numbers have been building back up again, and last year was the first year that my third kind showed up.

    Yeah, there was a "spousal comment" yesterday. -sigh-

    I snuck the broody out through the window, and put her outside with some of the chicks. As soon as she shows that she will mother well, then the majority of the chicks will follow. However, with this rain, it is COLD. Yesterday we rotated chicks. Every four hours we swapped out which chicks were outside, to make sure no one was getting chilled. :rolleyes:
