Gosh, I hope you don't have to have surgery again either. Hopefully, the weather will be better when you have to make your trip to Asheville. I see you live in Franklin. My husband and I think your town is just beautiful! We were just through there in November. Do you mind me asking from whom you are getting your BBS Orp eggs from in Waynesville (another precious town)? I need to find a source for those and the Jubilee's too as when my Buffs go broody I want them to hatch those two particular breeds. I have great things about the rare breed Orpington eggs from Papa's Poultry in CA but I would rather get them from a more local source if possible. Stay warm and dry today!
