To kill some time StrykersPerson, you could always pull out your stainless scrub buds.

Those baby chicks will LOVE that heat lamp, and those comfy wood chips...a foul party, in a barrel...hehe.
- we use to raise piglets under a heat lamp, in the winter time

When I was a kid, we had city slicker kids come visit and loved going to the barn, at chore-feeding time.
I would grab a baby pig and get the 3 city kids to kiss it...LOL...right on the lips.
- some harmless barn fun, 50 yrs. ago

Pins and Needles!

I called the hatchery. Supposedly, my babies are being hatched today.

However, I am guaranteed delivery tomorrow, Friday or Saturday morning at the latest.

What??? Day old chicks delivered three days later??



I guess they are trying to get my order right.



I am going a little bit crazy!

LOL

Is it too late to back out of this deal?

You all need to get your smart remarks in now, because once my babies get here, I will have no further need of your services for a few days.

Stop clapping your hands.

They left yesterday and I am expecting a call sometime inconvenient. All I know, is they are in transit...

And, my man, is running around town in MY truck to pick up a pizza!

Hope he brings it home in one piece!
