Tara, I just put candy-flavored laxative on my shopping list, thanks! Guy, I'll see you losing with one out left, and raise you a team known as the Lovable Losers trading away 2 excellent pitchers in exchange for retaining the second half of their nickname. DH is a lifelong Cubs fan. Very sad and confused man today. I'm building a flock of one-offs, quite by accident. Due to poor hatch and attrition (shipped eggs, Marek's) I have 1 Welsummer pullet, 1 White Empordanesa cockerel, and this weekend hatched 1 Augsberger (all black chicken). I keep thinking eventually I'll discover a creative use for them, I just haven't yet. The Welsummer I guess I can add to the RIR or Ameraucana flock just to have her somewhere she has lots of buddies once she starts laying, don't know yet what the Augsberger is gender-wise, but what in the world could I do with the WE? He is too rare to process or sell once he's big enough. Also have a dreadfully cross-beaked Lavender Ameraucana cockerel which I know I will have to put down, not even enough body weight to process, but I haven't yet because he's such a friendly bird. That one, there is no use for. He's only alive because he gets a deep dish of soaked/fermented feed twice a day and fills his crop each time. The rest of the day he works at getting some dry crumble swallowed. If he would just be a jerk I'd put him down, but he flies up to me every now and then to say hello, and I just haven't been able to make myself do it.
