    Got my new spring trap and a cage to put some bait in. I am 'bout to get this sucker that is eating my chickens! I saw my dad get one this way when I was little. I'm not really looking forward to seeing the fox in the trap...but that thing has to go. :)

    Donna sounds like I left Nashville just in time to miss the heat. I put extra water pans out for the chicks before I left. Since my sons car broke down he can't get to my house to check on the chicks till today. I sure hope their alright.

    My Black and Blue Coppers by far lay the darkest eggs. I would say in general its the BCM but I have one Blue right now that is laying way dark!

    I thought you said July 6th? Yes I really don't get their idea of customer service. I will really be crazy mad if the birds are crap or DOA.
    You need to get that fox its probably got kits to feed and will keep trying your fences. SSS

    If anyone is interested in splitting an order from MyPetChicken.com, let me know. You can order as little as three chickens, but I only want one or two more. I've already done an order wtih them and the chicks arrived VERY healthy. Pretty pleased. However the shipping is nearly $36. So if anyone in the Nashville area wants to order a couple chicks that will arrive the week of July 23, please let me know and we can split shipping. (That week is when they have dominiques avail again)

    Alternatively, if anyone has a very young dominique chick available PLEASE contact me! Thanks!

    BiyBy - Those are actually hens, although I thought I saw someone locally that had a few Dominique chicks for sale on craigslist too

    Well I lost two hens to the heat this evening. I checked on them several times today and they were doing ok considering. Left home for a couple hours then came back to two expired hens. A Buff Orp and a Barred Rock. The Buff was my wife's favorite chicken. These were two of the original four pullets we started with 2 years ago. They have shade to go to and fresh water. I'm going to set up a fan tomorrow. Hopefully that will help. Any other suggestions are much appreciated.
