Well, Brian, bust ma britches. I think that you have a really busy time ahead of you, you aspire to great things. I hope that your volunteered help helps out alot, that is far too much to tackle all on your own. I have been doing alot of work revamping my chicken areas too. The 20 little chicks are now 5 weeks old and seem to keep getting bigger and bigger, smiling. Had to make their baby yard bigger.
This morning I am heading off to Surrey to get some two month old Blue Cochins. I can't wait. I have had my eye out for the blues and I finally found a gal selling some, straight run, but when I asked her she said that they are beginning to show their gender, that will make life a little easier for me.
Ivan (that Light Brahma I incubated from your eggs) is massive!!!! He is one smoking hot beautiful bird. I picked him up the other day, and he is heavy. Still has lots of quills that are just getting their feathers coming out the ends, looks like hundreds of little paint brushes below his larger feathers. Still wish I had a gal for him. He keeps trying to have his way with the girls, but Jackson is one mighty powerful dude who is just not going along with it. Keeping my eye out for a Light Brahma hen, haven't seen one yet though. Have that wonderful, most awesome day and life, and health. Cindi
