Okay, CT students, I hope you were paying attention- pop quiz later today!
Am I supposed to move to Canada now?

I can slip through.

Cressrb Seeing the picture of TN's snake reminded me of the Rattler we killed while at the Wyoming ranch reunion a couple years ago. I told my grandson I wanted the skin to make a hatband for myself. I worked so hard on that skin. Scraped it, stretched it and pinned it on a flat board to dry slowly. Then found the right oil for it. The complete process took me several months. The next step was to find the right backing to form and glue for my hat. Meanwhile, I had carefully rolled it and put it in a jar to keep moist and kept it up away from the dogs. All the Dobermans were over here. Company had come in and I put the dogs in my bedroom until things settled down. Didn't notice until later that night, the empty jar where my carefully preserved snake skin 'had' been. Gone, undoubtedly in one big gulp. Still kinda mad about it.

Cressrb Can't say I 'like' this, but thanks. Looks like our cabin could just disappear off the map. My sister wants me to move to Idaho, but looks like they could disappear, too. We're sunk.

Later I learned to read her reaction and would say, Jada says get ready for an aftershock. And a few seconds later we could feel it.

I'm no expert when it comes to chicken breeds, and the only one I can think of with "silver" in the name is Silver Wyandotte.

A note on temps, though. Chicks should be started at 95 degrees, and reduced about 5 degrees per week. 70 is MUCH too cold for chicks that young. 90 is OK, but that's what I was talking about when I said sometimes chicks will get chilled (the 70 degree part). We think it's still warm, but it's close to 100 degrees under their mama, so for them, 70 is "cold." Start putting some powdered cayenne in their food now, and keep an eye out for the dreaded Pasty Butt. And hang a heat lamp for them to sleep under to keep them warm enough at night. When they're three or four weeks old, they should be fine without a light, at your temps.



That middle pic, where she has her eyes closed and is pressing up against dad's chin is just priceless. She just bubbles over with love, doesn't she?

OK, kitten started fussing, so I set him down. He's curled up in front of the propane stove thing now, waiting for it to kick on and give him fire, LOL! He likes heat, too.

In the spirit of spring, I did my nails yesterday and decided on green nail polish. I hadn't worn it in years, because the chickens think it's something they can eat and they kept pecking my fingers. But since I haven't worn it in a while (years and years, in fact), it looks really WEIRD. Weirder even than that shocking neon pink color I mentioned a few weeks ago.

Oh, and our hay guy called yesterday and he's bringing out our final (full) load of good hay on Monday or Tuesday. We need to wait a few days for the mud to dry out a bit more before he tries bringing that big trailer in here.

And I AM making cheese today. It will be given to Clint (the hay guy) for being such a nice person to save us the rest of our hay in such a poor production year. There was so much rain last summer, he only got two cuttings (usually he does four), but he likes us, so he said he always makes sure we get first dibs. He's the BEST!

You did fine Lannie!

I think he said he started his flock a few weeks ago, so I assuming the pasty butt stage has passed.

Them little fluffy butts were cute, weren't they?

Hopefully it will give me some idea if I want to spend for an electronic drum kit.

At least he's only got 6 butts to monitor.

I have not raised chicks before but we had some chickens as we grew up , so thanks for the advice.
We are having temps of 70 D. nights and 90 D. day and will keep them in the greenhouses for sometime since they are cooled during the day and i am little bit more concerned with heat stress during the day time.
Feel free to pass on any good info , I will always take good advice.

...so does the does the cayenne pepper make them a little spicy?

Should be a quiet day, for the most part. I have to go get some gas for the riding mower, then cut the grass before it rains this afternoon. And we'll probably start moving some or most of the plants out of the storage room in the garage out onto the deck and patio. With this nice weather we're itching to start planting the flower beds but we've learned it's best to wait till mid/late April although the way this winter has gone, I doubt there'll be any sudden cold spells.
Lily Belle learned her lesson with playing with copperheads!

If she plays with one again? She won't be coming home.

She's really good at alerting now!

She has an entirely different bark when spotting snakes!

Let's say yes!

I can't believe it either! Lots to do at home! Draw, paint, play bucket drums, post on CT, surf the internet - find interesting things and post again on CT, and finally when all the fun stuff does run out. Can clean some cupboards and organize, closets, etc...Weed the garden, prepare for a garden.

ECIN Boy oh boy - There was lots of rock and roll played on here yesterday ! Good picks TN !

That Mocha ! What else is there to say ?

TN - the snake ? 14 foot Rattler ?

SD is really getting as bad as TN posting up pictures of food ! The one with the shiners - I think I'll pass , LOL

This brings me to Meadowcat ! We know she is working from home - then all the food pictures and NO response ?? Huh ! Bet she is laying around all day with the kitties and the Dobers - Oh yeah and walking over to the fridg. ! Remember social distancing with your fridg. !

Light rain last night - maybe some big boomers moving in later - Looks like IL may be in for the really ruff stuff , good place for it .

Had a Kroger pickup yesterday = disappointing ! No Potatoes ! Your kidding me !

You know - I have been giving this hoarding deal some thought , I just can't believe how they are keeping the grocery cleaned out , then it hit me ! What else is there for them to do ? They may have kids at home - that would be at school eating , the same with mom and dad at home that would be eating lunch out . then there is super , Take home ? Or they just load up and go out to eat - that has stopped - so now , they have to do something they are not use to doing ! Eating at home ! When will this slow down ? I have no idea , probably as long as there is this dang virus to deal with . They said that the high point for Indiana may not be till mid April to the last of April ! Then what ? Maybe a month after that to go down some ?? Wife and I talked the other day , You know , it just will not ever be safe to go to town again till they have a vaccine to cure it .

I have been in contact with my Purdue buddies and the local ag educator - what are we going to do about our trials this year ? We thought the wait and see approach would be a good idea - But after hearing the Mid to last of April - I made a command decision last night , it is just not worth taking any unnecessary chances and going to pull the plug on any field research done here this year = Not even any visitors ! This really hurts ! As we had plans to host 2 or 3 on farm educator and farmer type shows ( classes )this season , This is my fun part of the year ! It's lots of work to put on - it takes 7 to 10 days to get ready for each show - everything has to be perfect ! Prefect ! lol

I guess I will have to fill up my extra time with making more on farm video's ! Maybe a kids version ! One with the right words to use when you hit your finger ! Been thinking about ordering a Go Pro ! Anybody out there have one and which one to get ? And work on adding music with them - Maybe the first video will be on the Big tractor - along with the country song - Big Green Tractor -- SP should like that one

Well better get

Doc
