Re: Good Morning!

Ok, I’m not having fun trying to let Miranda hatch chicks. After I moved the nest to the little coop, she hopped right on it and seemed happy as a clam. (Where does that expression come from?

Re: Good Morning!

So I have Miranda the broody Wyandotte sitting on some silkie eggs. Here’s hoping! Yesterday I found her sister Mercedes squeezed in with her. I have been wondering how the other girls manage to lay eggs in that nest with Miranda sitting on it. It’s a good thing the silkie eggs are easy to identify,...

(For people who don’t me, I had cancer, then my husband of 45 yrs died and then among other things my own dog ate all my ducks and half my chickens. Having a rough patch), but I was thinking about you guys today and thought I would ...

Re: Size matters

So ok this seems like the place to tell the story of Clyde, who wasn't too sharp and knew it. He asked the doctor to give him some Smart pills.
