    Mine is my first name and my birthday...totally original, huh?[​IMG]

    Seriously thought about changing it to "Lefty the one-armed chicken wrangler" after Skip and I had our bike wreck as I've moved more chickens around one-handed, than the whole time we've had them.

    The first incident happened right after Skip came home from the hospital...he'd come along to help me feed/water/collect eggs and I came out of the main coop in tears. One of the roos got his butt kicked and was hiding out in a nest box. I was upset about that but what hurt worse was I had no idea how I was going to catch him with my right arm in a cast/sling. Got the chicken net and had him in it in record time...third try was the charm. [​IMG]

    He's been in a hospital cage since then and has recovered completely. So I went to add more hay for him a few days ago and he decided he was going to get out the opened door as I was putting the hay in...WRONG...I threw the hay left-handed and before he could fully escape, I had him by the rear-end/tail feathers with my left hand. Skip said he'd never have believed it if he hadn't seen the whole thing for himself. [​IMG]

    The cast will be coming off...finally...on Wednesday so I guess I'll stick with Dawn419...

    Well, I'm a mama, and my last name is Boyd, so that's how Mamaboyd came to be, plus it 's easier for me to remember and I use it on different forums. [​IMG]

    I was 1iahawkfan - The Iowa Hawkeyes are my favorite college team. But, I decided to change - my youngest son is leaving for college this fall. After 28 years I will have an empty nest [​IMG]

    However, I've found a new hobby to keep me occupied [​IMG]

    kingscalls= King is our last name..........Calls came from the fact that we started raising call ducks

    Now we are trying to come up with a farm name so, we can register our future goats in our farm name. So far we have.....Hill Top Farm, we are on top of a big hill
    Valley View Farm, we also have a great view of the valley.
