    Hi Aussie thank you for checking in. Sounds like you are steady busy.

    Kloppers the best winter thing you can do for chickens is give them space. Behavior-stress-illness prevention. Space is your friend.

    I've been spending my evenings reading a couple of books instead of iPad time. I like Amy Tan & just finished Paulo Coelho 'The Witch of Portobello'. I'm trying to get through David Sedaris again, but it's not my cup of tea. Basically my library has been complaining that it's neglected.

    I managed to read two books when we went south last month, it felt good to read for enjoyment.

    In the last few mornings many of hens in that coop have Ruffles feathers in a spot on their back with frost on the feathers. Buck usually has several spots. Either he moves his head around or some hens nestle into him.the hens in the other coop don't seem to have this happen

    OK I think Ralphie will burst soon if he has to keep KEEPING my secrets,, but yes he is very good at it... And Aussie Girl doesn't let anything phase her,, OK here it is just to get it out there,,, Yes i got the farm i went with VA loan and they are little more strict then conventional so there was couple things that need to be done.. Guess that is good.. I finally signed all the papers and my current home gets put on the market tomorrow,, fingers xx`ed it sells quick that would be nice.. I found out I might have cancer AGAIN that part sucks but this will be my 5th time going around with this Bi$&h.. but this time might be a little more serious..seems to get harder and harder to keep fighting her but guess i can do it ONE MORE TIME if i have to.. I see the surgeon tomorrow to discuss the bone biopsy procedure. ohh and I got MARRIED yesterday... LOL... thought Ralphie for sure would bust a seam keeping that one quiet. I know it seems fast i just started dating him BUT ive known him over 30 years and have been best friends with him forever. I guess i just jumped.. why waste time when you know something is right...i know its only been 2 1/2 years since my husband died but i know how easy life can change. Ive been very fortunate to have 2 great men fall in love with me.. It did sorta break my heart when i looked over at my son when i was getting married and seen him crying i almost stopped the wedding to go hug him,, but he said he was happy for me and he was just missing his dad.. Im sure it was little hard on him but he knows his dad loved my new husband. NEW HUSBAND,,,LOL ... didnt think i would be doing that again,, But 1 kiss and i was lost... SO thats what ive been doing... :)
