    First eggs are unsure they were all still ranging.

    But I have royal palms, chocolate. Bourbon reds. All penned for purity now.

    Poor baby. I've had chicks like this because another chick either pecked the eye or it got scratched while laying down. I have used my own eye drops on them! Worked, it was anti inflammatory. But, not everyone has that around. It's prescription. I have also used Neo on it. Yep, it worked.

    Man, my husband really did a number on his finger. Has to go see a specialist with 3 to 4 days from when he did this. He's going in tomorrow. He evidently cut a tendon. He did cut it pretty deep. Couldn't believe what I was looking at when the Dr. opened it to inspect it. Now, it will be reopened, and hopefully the specialist can help him to be able to move it right again.

    Oh! That's interesting. Shavings in eye? We never really know do we? It's swollen, right?

    My Icelandic eggs are due in tomorrow! I can't wait!

    Okay, I don't want anyone to get upset with me (Banti) but I don't get the duck thing. They are cute, I get that part but dear Lord, they are also dumb as a stump. At least the ones I had were. I had the white Pekin and Rouen. Did I just end up with defective ducks???
