    I did drain it. I ran it dry with the choke on. I actually moved it from Florida when we came back up here and did not want gas in it when it was in the trailer. So maybe I got lucky...Tome will tell. It is not a high priority for me. But there are a few days a year I wish I had it running. I actually wish I had a new one, BUT that will not happen.

    Barley is the most popular fodder seed I have seen people grow

    Why make barley into fodder when we can drink it? [​IMG]


    I have sold some unhatched chicks!! A guy called on my craigslist ad to buy 5 creamettes on Saturday when they hatch (if they hatch).


    I hope they do and I hope my girlie thermometer gets here soon...I worry about when I move them to the hatcher the temps will not be right.




    How far off can the temps be and eggs still hatch? If anything I am a tad cool, I prefer that to too warm.

    I fed the yolk to the dog and ate the white


    If you did drain it you are grand. I bought a bike that had gas sitting it in for 5 years and had to rebuild the carbs. The slides were so crusty!
