    You must be getting all of our snow! I haven't had to push snow yet this winter.[​IMG]
    Most of our snow is gone...we've had plus temps for the last few days. When I used to lamb at this time of the year, it was always in the low -20 C. I only had a small wooden granary and I'd have it packed with 5-6 ewes plus their baby lambs to process and let the babies dry...and then I'd start switching these ones out for the next 5-6. I sure could of used the weather we're having right now...[​IMG]
    Such a lovely scarf!! Function AND fashion, the best of both worlds. [​IMG] Your son has excellent taste!
    It's also very nice to see you too. Nice to meet you! [​IMG]
    (I have never posted my pic or name anywhere before here, I'm super old school. I'm not even on the book of face...lol)

    I candled all 24 of my eggs last night after noticing an early quitter that I couldn't find again.
    I have 21 wigglers (some are doing the Macarena!) two clears and the early quitter that looks like it was dead at about three days. Nothing really to even see.
    This is my best hatch (so far! [​IMG]) that I have had in six or so hatches!
    The problem is that I only expected a few to hatch. Now what am I supposed to do with almost fifty new chicks within a month? I mean, there will be 21 from this hatch, plus the hatch along. Then I have five girls that will probably go broody at any time (their sisters have already hatched out a clutch each over the winter!). [​IMG] I need to get this math under control.

    Love the coloring books. Kudos to your restraint, if I drew those I don't know that I could stop myself from shading/coloring in. LOL :)




    Have been researching quail again this afternoon. I am planning to start with coturnix this year, with hopes of stocking the freezer as well as having some fun playing with genetics (which I can't help but do with anything I raise, I fear). I raised up some bobwhites last year outside in a rabbit hutch and they were adorable. Switching to coturnix for size and speed of maturity. Looking forward to raising me up some popcorn chicks. Anyone else doing quail?
