    Wow, that is fantastic, no wonder that coop was no big deal for you to build! Great job. And woot woot on the offers!
    I had one is those last winter, i figured it was because it had been frozen, but unlike jerry, i did not eat it, as i wasn't sure...

    I see different names in the 'who is viewing this thread' box all the time that i havent seen post before. We must attract a crowd when we get rolling haha

    1. I believe that one Sasquatch clan moves into a cabin in the woods near Togo for the winter. The humans that own it are never there in the winter and rarely in spring, summer or fall.

    2. Ralphie, I assume you are aware that once a bird has grown to mature size there are metal bands, similar to those used to band wild birds, which can be used to identify and manage your flock?

    Yep I knew that, my problem is trying to mark the babies. Once they are teens I can go to full size band and they normally stay on. I do weird ways of marking them, different colors in different orders on right and left leg mean different things.... Then because my memory is o good, I do not write them down and store it in the old grey matter ,, which then forgets what I did that marking for in a week or so..

    I plan to do better, maybe..


    BTW I am looking for a dump box and snow plow so I can go up there in the winter. It will tick off a bunch of snowmobilers, but not my problem, they use our driveway as a snowmobile trail all winter. ( well, about half of our driveway)


    We evicted Sasquatch from the cabin, he was making a mess in the outhouse and refused to vacuum when he left!

    I love snowmobiling but it really bugs me how much people don't respect the landowners whose land they are on. They don't think about their actions. A product of self righteous millenials who think they can do whatever they want #OldManStatus

    I do not mind they use the drive, We told the county they could include it in the trail system as it completes a nice circle for them. I just get upset at the people that complain when we "mess up the trail" by using our driveway.
