I usally feel sorry for GOOD people who are down on their luck. I learned quick after giving our neighbors food when they needed it. I guess it was an open invite because I caught their kids stealing money from us. Then they stole all our meat out of our freezer. They even took crates from my basement to haul it home in. I know this becasue they left the ugly orange crates sitting in their front yard.

I guess Sue is just going to have to whip herself up some sort of spell and fix her own problems. Perhaps she will follow her own advice "You can do anything...if you only try."

Yeah, a real winner, huh? :( I thought about posting everything, thanks for reading my mind. :) Did you see my question about the "other" sue? Right after the "help" posts, the was a "milk post" I posted that anybody can get netzero and the first ten hours are free, as a matter of fact we have Netzero also. Just wondering because it was just too coincidental. The second sue described her life differently than the first sue, but that doesn't mean anything really. Just curious what you thought, if you caught that.

The othre Sue seems to ba avery colorful individual!!! I actually have never read anything like that at all. I guess my hi school ag teacher was right Chippewa Falls ( where I grew up) really is the shelter from the real world.

at it Kelly. By the way, probably going to get some chicks shortly, just hoping they will get along with the guineas we have. Got to check it out. They will probably drive the chickens crazy with all their noise. Tractor Supply has the Buffs , like you got, or leghorns. Leghorns get testy, even the hens. But, they sure are layers

Are guineas docile or aggressive? When ever I was researching to get chickens, I wanted a good layer, can't remember about the leghorns, but I do know the Buffs are supposed to lay plenty. The owner of the feed store I bought them from says they will give me an egg each a day when they get started. More than enough for us, and then to give to family and friends. I could probably make a few bucks by selling the eggs, but I am afraid if I put a sign out there, it would draw the wrong attention. I would end up with missing chickens, or worse, the cops harrassing me.

What is your brooder like? Did you make one, or buy one? I don't know if you saw my picture a while back of mine that I made. It has worked really well, and was really cheap to make. I was thinking about maybe getting some wyandottes after the buffs go outside. They are supposed to get along with buffs. Read that buffs are the low man on the totem pole when mixed in with others, seeing as they are so docile. The wyandottes are supposed to be okay with them though. Just thinking about it.

Good luck with your new brood! I would like to hear about them as they grow. :)

be our fourth batch of chicks, we used a horse tank and it worked out well. Dogs and foxes got the others we had. If you got a dozen hens, you are going to be knee deep in eggs. My daughter and I built in a few hours about 8 nesting sites, and fastened them to the side of one of the horse stalls. Used scraps left over from the house I had built. One wide scrap of sheeting about 5 inches wider than the nest for the bottom so they can walk along it, one long one for the top, and equal divisions for nests. Screwed a couple of boards to the back lengthwise for strength so it could be screwed to the wall. Been up there for 3 years now, has not moved. Think I made it in sections and put them against each other. Real easy to do Kelly.
I think out of the three batches of chickens, three of them died the first two weeks. About 30 some in all. Not too bad
