TG - I have ameracunas (solid white and the orangy/brown), cuckoo marans, buff orps, wyandottes, barred rocks, california whites and lakenvelders - all hens. Those ladies all run with a big red sussex roo and now the dark brahma so their offspring would be mixed but interesting, that's for sure.

My purebred breeding pairs are blue cochins, spangled hamburgs, and silver laced polish which are just now coming of age and aren't laying yet.

If you want to try incubating for the heck of it, let me know. Every egg I crack into the frying pan these days is fertile from the mixed group if you don't mind mixed breeds - otherwise I expect it would be spring before the purebred group started giving me fertile eggs on a regular basis.

This fall will be a major molt for half of my group. Should be interesting, that's for sure!

I have two little S hacks - LOVE those, too! But I use neoprene on the nose.

That's what I thought too when she mentioned it but it is not a hack. It's metal and shaped like a bosal. The bars under the chin flex kinda. I've never seen anything like it and was hoping maybe one of you had. She had a big fleece wrap around the nose band so it wasn't too harsh....

So, catching up:

TG, so sorry about the chickens, yeay about the job!

Nu, yeay for Lil!

EMS, so happy it's working out!

Wish I had an English tack store even remotely close. Especially one that isn't overpriced lol I know, I'm demanding. But hey, this way money stays in the bank haha

TG it happens. My DH came home to the neighbors dogs in the pen (they opened the latch) and out of 50+ chickens we had 3 that survived. Hugs. Don't beat your self up. Luckily I wasn't the first home or the dogs would have been buried with the chickens. EAt my eggs shame on me and I'll relocate your A**, eat my chickens and I catch you in the pen with more than one down your throat you get buried together. I do have a forgiving nature to mamas with babies that snatch one when they are out without supervision and it is my fault.

Well Dh wasn't able to finish getting the truck loaded thanks to torrential downpours and 60 mph winds. He is hoping to get to leave first thing in the morning. Very frustrating...but what can we do at this point other than push forward. I sure hope the school is understanding.

I've never been to the Dover in our area. I think I definitely need to check that one out! I'm always in the market for another saddle pad or something. ;) I don't need much of an excuse to hit the Horse and Rider in McKinney on a regular basis, and my hubby scores MAJOR points when he take me on a trip up to Paul Taylor in Aubrey. I really should hit Pauls on my own some time because hubby is always rushing me. He knows not to give me the time I want in places like that. I could literally spend hours there.

I can't believe Houston doesn't have a Dover. I live next to the big city of Houston, and they really don't have squat. Tomball and Houston have a Charlotte's saddlery, but they are overpriced - a good place to go see stuff, but then go home and order it online.
