Re: Good Morning!

Seems like things have worked out positively for all; that's a good thing. I was going to set some eggs around the 23rd this month, but decided not to. If I did, I would have to brood the chicks in the basement. Considering that we have a stone foundation in our 1890's house, it's hard to find where...

Re: Impending Birthday

My regular store is 43 km away. I'll carry my groceries from the car to the house. Even with the nearest store being 4.2 km away, no sidewalks, I would still drive. I'm not in my 20's anymore!
And Happy Impending Birthday, Killerbunny!

Re: Aggggghhhhhh!!

We had a frozen egg the other day. Guess it was laid super early in the morning and froze by 7:30 a.m. It was cracked, but clean, and the inner skin was still intact. So I washed it as I normally would, took the shell off and put it in a container and into the fridge. It got eaten today. Funny thing...

Re: Good Morning!

Certainly easier then picking up at Performance Poultry, if you don't mind beak trimmed birds, pretty convenient having them delivered to your feed store. If I'm not mistaken, I think you can request that they do not trim beaks. I'm going to look that up.... nope, couldn't see anything on the hando...

Re: Good Morning!

What is their description? Are they advertising them as blue egg layers or green/blue etc? Wondering because PP states his are Easter Eggers. The insert says: "Ameraucana (blue egg layer)" Have to order a "minimum of 4 total. Orders of 2 will be accepted if combined with a minimum of 4 other ready-...
