Too many cats!!
*sigh* I think I'm down to 17 chicks from my original 50+. But the ones I *do* have are a strong batch, voracious eaters, and really enthusiastic about everything it seems like. OH BOY! FOOD! OH BOY! WATER! OH BOY! NEW PAPER! OH BOY! DOOR OPENING! one of them is deciding to try & hop up onto the open doorway... looks like I'll have an escapee before too long.

I caved in yesterday. Peep peep peep!

I got 4 Speckled Sussexes & 2 White Wynadottes. Can't help it.... but they're in a brooder completely separate from the others and I have been doing massive amounts of sanitizing between messing around with one brooder versus another brooder.

I don't want to go over the whole chicken mess that I wrote about in SF Spring 2018 thread, but I will post a picture of Babushka. If she makes it, which I'm guessing that she will because she drank on her own & I'll be offering her special food when I get home from appt this afternoon. If she eats, then we're good to go. Poor thing. It was terrible looking. I won't post the picture of the wound.. it's truly that bad.

Never be afraid of a scar. It just means that you were stronger than something that tried to hurt you.

Lord I haven't updated this in a long long time.

Miss Clucky doesn't like sharing the nest box.. so Crockpot took things into her own hands (wings? talons?).

New chicks, new chicks, new chicks.. waaaaaaay over loaded with new chicks!!! Yikes!

Thumb of 2018-04-10/Skiekitty/eb32af

I haven't done a full Glamour Shots with ALL of the chicks, just a few. And I'm actually getting 16 more tomorrow! What was I thinking????

I did extremely well at the downtown Swap on the 7th... I sold almost everyone I had planned on selling! I took 6, brought home 2, no new ones! That's always a plus! BUT! the swap in Elizabeth on the 8th.. it was a good swap, I had a LOT of fun, but I got majorly ripped off. I took a whole bunch of mini dinos... some had been outside for over a week, suffering through a snow storm, but some hadn't. I put everyone together (they were all between 5-8 weeks old) and had them all in a HUGE dog crate (42") It was VERY VERY VERY windy this weekend and on the eastern Plains, yea, it's worse out there because there's no trees or anything to break the wind, especially since it's coming off the mountains. The wind was also VERY cold. Bleh. I wasn't 100% sure on how many I had and this lady came up wanting all of them. I got a box out to count how many and she said no no, there's 12, I'm sure there's 12. I had already quoted her $80 for the whole lot, whereas I was asking $10/ea, so that's one heck of a deal. So, OK, I will go for $80 for the lot. She left to go get her credit card & I started to box them up.

She said I had 12.

I counted 14 when I boxed them up. So she got them for almost $5, whereas I bought some for that exact price as day old chicks! grrrrrrrr..

and what *REALLY* got my goat was the fact that she got a different vendor from clear across the entire swap (about 500ft up the parking lot) and asked him, right in front of me, if $80 for the lot was a good price. He looked at me, I glared at her, and he said, yea, you are NOT going to get a cheaper price from ANYONE. That really really really ticked me off royally. But because I had already quoted her, I wasn't going to back down.

It's OK. Karma will catch up some day.

After she left w/box of chicks in hand and a duck in her other arm, I was out of livestock to sell, so decided to wander around & check out what others had (I hadn't had the chance yet). I caught up with some FB friends of mine that I've known for years & was discussing this lady when the guy she had brought over to verify that I was giving her a good deal came up. He was made because he had quoted her $20 for the duck, she handed him a folded $10, he just shoved it in his pocket & she took off quickly. It wasn't until after she'd loaded the duck & the chicks that he found out that she'd given him just 1 $10, not 2, so she cheated him out of $10. So we all are going to keep a lookout for her next time.

Grrr! Why are some people like that? I used to have an older, Russian woman come to market and try to sneak cucumbers like that. And I already was selling them cheap!!! She'll get a bad reputation and people won't sell to her eventually.

Toni,
Love the shared nesting box!
Look at all your babies! I hope they are all healthy! I can just hear their peeps!
Then I would have held two back. 12 is what she paid for. Wow, she was a piece of work!
Cute cute pictures!

Had kind of a bust of a swap on Saturday. Went to this town called Falcon. I'm gonna be honest.. the people there are cheap. Lookieloos. They weren't even willing to spend $2 for a potted lilac or $5 for a HUGE lilac bouquet... my $5 pullets were too expensive. Everyone *loved* these 2 chickens I had, but weren't willing to pay $20 for a laying chicken. *shrug* Oh well, I won't go back to that one.. it's almost an hour 1 way.

But I took some pictures of how the babies are growing.. and growing.. and growing.....

haven't posted here in forever, but grumpy news today. one of my hatchery sexed pullets has found his voice. So off he goes.. either to some place else to be a noisy yard ornament or dinner.
