  1. The brooder is done. I finished it last night.
    I got my MM order of Quik Chik and Grogel two days ago.
    The ceramic heat bulb was delivered today.
    Picked up the waterer and feeder two weekends ago from the feed store on the corner.

    I am not waiting for an order but its close. I have to wait till I can buy hatching eggs again. I dont know when I will be able to buy hatching eggs because of our finacial problems [​IMG]. Hopefully I will hear the words "you can buy hatching eggs again"

    Poultry fever is contagious. Waiting on 2 shipments myself.
    Gotta take an asprin I guess.
  7. LOL, at least we have each other! Anyone up north with incredibly cold weather? I'm dying for any temp over freezing! I have so much I need to do. I'm adding on to the coop and that will take a couple days. Finishing touches and painting needs to get done. I just need this winter to end.

    I have 15 RIR babies coming in a month. 8 are mine. This wait to so painful!! :mad:

    Our snow got rained away but the temps are supposed to drop into the 20s again this weekend. Brrrr!
  10. I'm near Niagara Falls. It was snowing this morning, but now it's stopped. It doesn't seem like this cold streak will snap. I'm dying for some sun and melting snow!
