    Thank you I googled it and I believe that may be what it was. Even down to the 'first symptoms' sometimes being increased thirst. We were watching her & had a plan for regular blood work since she was drinking quite a bit & her last panel showed slightly high glucose.... We were thinking...

    I lost Birdie today. She was Fine last Tues. Wed evening she had a slight limp when I let her out of the kennel. Not an unusual thing for her. I treated a broken nail & forgot about it. Thurs AM she didn't want her breakfast at first & was still sore.... but ate when I put it in the kennel...

    Eva had been alone off & on over the years and she's done great. I'll have to wait & see how she does this time. I'm not sure if I'm going to breed her again. I've enjoyed learning how to milk & process into various products. But it's gotten to be such a 'thing' to arrange things for the the...

    Big Doings & little note-worthy bits & stuff. 4.5" of rain yesterday! Will be muddy for days & days. Some of the storms must've been pretty good because there are lots of branches down. Ripped a couple lines of fence loose. Easy enough to fix. 👍 Had a MYSTERY here last week. We had a...

    Was it just too wet???? Maybe try again after we haven't had several days of showers. I burned my year old pile & had to keep hosing down the back half to slow it down (it got BIG fast & scared me!). Or maybe it knew you weren't properly prepared with hotdogs & smores??? 😉

    It's May. 🫣 Weird how time can fly & drag at the same time. In many ways it seems like it was JUST January. And in others I keep thinking things like HOW is it not July yet. 🤣 Work is good. Finding ways to deal with the heat. 🥵 Had a bizarre mystery the other day. We had some mild storms...

    One of the earlier ones went to the processor as a yearling who was still nursing.. a lot. I was fine with what I kept (mostly ground, stew beef & roasts) but several of the folks who got ribs or steaks said that they were so fatty that they practically disappeared on the grill.

    Random chicken question

    I've just had one of my odd 🤔 "What would happen if" questions occur. Everyone agrees that you can't keep Cornish cross from season to season and let them breed. Not breeding true. Health issues as they age. Etc. So my question is; Could you keep a young rooster Cornish cross with a flock...

    👍 still love my little mini tiller. It would be a BUGGER to try and till up a garden with! But if you need a big hole dug - 18" down & a few feet across - this thing is priceless. Small flower bed to put in? It'll do it. Planting a tree? Done.

    @Baymule I'm so glad he's home. When something has happened to one of my people, I'm never settled until I can lay my eyes on them. How long can he stay?
