    As far as I can figure with mine, whoever lays first gets to pick the box, and the rest just follow suit... So mine has no rhyme nor reason, they use them all, but only usually the same one on a given day. They are so silly.

    It got here [​IMG]

    Hahahah! [​IMG]

    Mine also woke up to her own alarm clock from age 11 on as I wasn't there... But I hear you about the 4am hockey practices, and having to drive home from a game and wait at the arena until after midnight for the bus to come back so we could drive her home. Loved when she got her license! We got to drive straight home from the game, and she had to drive herself to early practice, and home from afternoon practice. Don't miss any of that (except watching her play) [​IMG]

    Good plan![​IMG] I am, and will always be, your enabler. [​IMG] (sound familiar)

    I think Kloppers is looking for some turkeys...

    I would love to have a wood burning stove for ashes to add to my dusting areas.

    Oh my goodness, they are getting to be little kids, always into trouble! [​IMG] so cute!


    So I was eating supper, the puppy wanted my green beans. I told him to wait and I would get him some green beans when I was finished. He sat there all nice the rest of the time I was eating. The minute I put down my fork and was finished, he started barking. he wouldn't stop until I got up and got him some green beans. Sometimes he is too smart for his own good! man he loves those green beans! Stinker.

    I probably owe you guys some kitten photos, but my iphone is in the shop for some warranty work. The camera's were taking very poor photos. The apple guy says that it looked like a bunch of crud was building up in the lens but fortunately it is covered under warranty. The bad news is that they had to mail it in for service, so i'm on an old crappy phone until then. The good news is that it should then take excellent photos for you guys :)

    That is the kind i have. spring loaded and no issues with leaks. I have 2 tapped into the bottom of several 5 gallon pails and use them for my broilers. they chickens learned very quickly to use it, so i have no doubt my layers would figure it out.

    Them be the ones!

    I tired the gravity flow ones without the spring but they were junk. these work good when it is above freezing. I am going to experiment with them. I would think there should be enough heat in the water to keep them thawed. But as of today, it appears I think wrongly.
