    Ralph I will bring him with me when we go to Minnies and drop him off if you want. I am thinking of butchering my turkey hen anyways. Maybe a few poults for renting him??

    Thank you Cluckies. You have a good idea with the VetRx. That won't hurt anything. I've tried it with her before but it didn't really do much...so I think she's beyond that. I will do anyways though if it provides a measure of comfort to her. I've also got Thieves. Minnie has mentioned that in the past and I kind of forgot about that...but I may do that as well.

    I've got the electrolytes in the water during the cold here. So I got that far.

    It would be cool if you did. Breeders are having a hard time finding people to help to keep this beautiful land race breed alive.

    I would love an Icelandic, but wouldn't want the comb for frostbite, are you going to try and breed the comb to cushion comb maybe? I think a bird called an icelandic should have a cusion comb, [​IMG]

    If they were a Minnesota Chicken: A Cushion Comb is a smart genetic investment.

    Dang this weather. I'm sitting in a heated building and I'm still shivering. Right to the bones it goes.
