    No one should move to Nowthen when Orrock has lots of farms and acreage for sale!

    Do any of you know how to caponize a bird?


    I am thinking of having Ginger fixed... Because of an eye defect he might have according to Kevin Porter.

    There are tons of threads on here showing how and I have browsed a few and it looks pretty intense but doable if you knew what to look for... at least on a chicken.

    I think MCM has done it with mixed results

    And they tasted good, too!

    I want to make sure eggs I hatch have not froze, and know when they were hatch.

    Crackle, crackle, crackle!

    They're getting prettier but more fragile. Hopefully the temps will drop tonight and seal the crackles. These are going to cast amazing candle glow!
