feeding birds this morning and putting the second treatment for worms in the water, and decided to put the cocks and hens together.........its only a one day treatment, I did them 3 weeks ago, so I cant see it being any problem with pairing up, it will take at least 10 days to lay, then 19 days to hatch, so the wormer shouldn't be a problem...... Razz Razz


got 100 rings to fill, time is running out lol! lol!

Oh man! I can see myself doing that david Exclamation . When I was at the club meeting last weekend, the guy who owns the digest told me he buys his own. I think, next year...I'm going that route.

Another deep freeze week starting. Young are at an age and size now that is critical in this weather. Not fully feathered and too big for the parents to sit on. Fingers crossed here.

Good luck Hal. I thought about putting up a hardwired large radiant heater, just in case something happens like that to me. We have -30/40 F weather in February too.
