Well, well, well, Brian, 10 of the human beings in your household, that makes for one crazy, busy house. Wow!!! Tell me, who is living with you there? The kids, their kids, tell it all, I need to know. I thought we were busy with 18 living on our farm, but we were in 3 separate dwellings, smiling. I would love to hear who is with you, where on earth are you putting everyone, seems to me, when memory serves, that the house was not that big, are you stacking people? Hee, hee.
I know that more has gone on on your farm this summer, and you will soon tell me of what you have done, I know it takes time to write, but take that moment to spend with me, pleeeeze...about the computers, you were wise to get your own, so no one can fiddle around on it, it is amazing how wonderful the internet is, it is a power machine of greatness.
I got a kick out of Frances, be it sir or madame, smiling, funny how the gender changed, hee, hee. My chickens have taken turns moulting, but haven't experienced the long moult as you speak, each one did it at different intervals, lasting about one month. One buff Orpington looks so oddly weird, most of her back feathers are gone, and no tail feathers, boy are they actually quite tiny when they don't have feathers. I had a white bird once that would moult every single feather on her body, never could figure that one out. My gold laced Wyandotte did an extreme moult too, that was odd, but he is all grown back feathers now, so looks beautiful again.
I think we are in for a long and hard winter here too. If it snows as much as it has rained, we will have very deep snow, when that day comes. Nice to hear of your adventures, Brian, have that safe and most wonderful day, of love and health, Cindi
