    The nice cleaned out decluttered run, no more bulky waterer plopped in the middle, they have a lot more space now.

    How big do the CCL roosters get? I may add one to the pullet chicks I am getting Monday from AyeUpChuck. If they are not too big that is. Prolly gonna be getting rid of my Orp rooster. He is just too big(12+lbs) and I have all my girls in saddles. He is 50% English HinkJC line, super fluffy. Enough so I have to trim around his vent so he mates easier.

    I am surprised the chicks didn't bathe too. Mine did when Whitie bathed. It is so cute

    How do I tell the difference between a hatchery Cuckoo Marans and hatchery Barred Rocks? They're the same age and I have no clue which is which.

    Marans should have white skin legs, Rock should be yellow. Saying that I have a hatchery Rock with white skin.

    Tarp over the run pulled loose in the wind (on one corner only). We got a very nice sun break here in Rockchester so I went out and made the necessary fixem upem.

    Rain here also blew sideways today. Not only from the S but from the E which is unusual where I am. Now the litter in the run is damp, nuts. More work.

    Well, geese are my favourite birds BUT, and it's a biggy, they can be agressive to other birds. We had to get rid of ours, because in breeding season, the gander killed a number of "competing" ducklings. He was protecting his goose I know, but we had a lot of losses of babies because of it. So, if you can keep them separate, they can be wonderful. I really miss mine.
