I'm sorry I haven't been on more.But arthritis has settled in both hands and they are swelled and painful. One of the girls at my night job has quit and the load has shifted to the rest of the night crew.That means I'm working 5 nights a week till they hire someone else. If I want a night off, another girl has to work a 12 hour shift. That doesn't seem right to me me....so I keep plugging away. 60 hours a week isn't bad if you're 21, but at 55(next month) it isn't easy.
Now on to something else.... My hens have started laying. They average 3 eggs a day. I also have 8 roosters...Which mean all but 2 are history. I'm keeping the most dominate and prettiest one, and the banty (bantam) rooster. He has what we call Easter chicken blood. They have the colored eggs.
The ones I'm getting are small and light pink. The eggs will get bigger and the hens will start laying everyday when it warms up.My chickens are spoiled rotten and are very tame. When I go in the pen they will fly up and land on my arms and shoulders. You can reach down and pick them up they are so tame. I've had a lot of people want to buy them, NO WAY!!!. I told them I would set some eggs for them in the spring if they wanted. I want to find someone with chickens and set some of the eggs so my chickens will have new hens and roosters. I don't need in-breeding .
Jon bless his heart, lost his rabbit yesterday....... I really don't know what happened. He just started losing weight and got to where he couldn't get up.But the rabbit ate and drank all the time. So no more rabbits for us. Jon wants a duck for a pet, I've tried to tell him they don't make good pets.But they do make good duck and dressing!! LOL.
Well I started writing this about 2:00 pm. I also washed a load of clothes and went to work for 5 hours. Now I'm home and tired and getting ready for bed. I won't stay away as long next time. I hope everyone is doing ok and I want you to know I am praying for each and everyone of you. Good-night everyone and God bless.
