    Yes I did!:hitthere are more though. And I get to watch them grow!

    So super cute story warning!!

    My turkey poult is HUGE compared the chicken chicks so you can imagine how it compares to the quail chicks. It's also the same fluffy yellow. The quail chicks follow it around like its their momma hen (I think it's a Jenny). They cuddle up to it to sleep. It makes sure they follow it over to the food and water. They even huddle under it like they would with a momma. It's the cutest. I feel bad that I will soon have to separate them....

    He will. That is my typical treatment for copperhead bite. Our female GP, Paris DESPISES snakes and kills them. Trip hasn't been bit until now, maybe this will make him hate snakes too. Beaux, the new 6 month old Catahoula puppy doesn't have any snake "experience" so we'll see. Both Parker and Polly ( now gone, sniff) both got inducted to the copperhead Hall of Fame, and avoided them after that. Usually a couple of treatments, sleep and they are fine. Going for more coffee.....

    Gave Trip another round of baby aspirin, benedryl and arnicare pills. He is snoozed out in the floor. He got bit on the left front leg, he is laying on it, so it must feel better. He got up once and wanted to go outside with me, but turned around at the door and went and laid back down.

    I decided that I'm just going to order the chicks online that way I can get what I want. They will be shipped 8/20. Looking forward to it!

    I gave Trip another round of benedryl, baby aspirin and Arnicare pills at 3:00 and again at 7:00PM. About 30 minutes ago, he wanted out on the porch, he ate his food, then got a long drink of water. He came back in and has been chomping on a bone. The swelling is down by a lot, he is putting weight on it, but it still hurts. Mostly he is just stretched out sleeping.

    Had a friend bitten by one -- bet he wishes he could have been treated as well. :D =D That ER bill was a whopper! Yeah, he said it HURT. Let Trip rest. Geesh, you all got that many of those things there???? They are here in the general area but, not heavy population.
