    Those are wonderful Ms. Grace, I will take one of those. Nothing like canned chicken to make the cold weather stay away or is that canned chicken soup and a cold. Hmmmmm sounds interesting.

    Awesome Homespun. You are going to love your finished quilt with the chickens. I have so enjoyed the last one I swapped in and it was a beginning swap. You go girl.

    We haven't lost 1 yet.
    The antibiotic is a powder that goes into their water. They really need it. I think it's around $7 here, and it's good for years.
    Update on our chicks that arrived May 30th. In the first 24 hours we lost 8 of our 11 chicks and then, 3 more. However, the good news is that the remaining 7 are doing fine, growing like weeds and havin' fun. It must have been a turbulent jet flight to our town.

    Great idea... canned chicken! DH's Mom used to can their elk meat so why not chicken?

    Love your Bantys!! Have a storie about one we had on the farm as a kid: It was a White Male And he was Mean!! would attack you and jump on your head try to get your eyes, well my mom had told Him if He did it one more time She would 'Wring' his Neck, He jumped on my niece who was only 14 mo. she 'grabbed him and That was That!!

    I would have done the same. Wonder if his meat was tough and did she "cann" it?

    My blocks are done!

    Here's what I decided to do.
    These were lots of fun to make.
    Hope to get them mailed tomorrow.

    Lizzy is my newest "inspector". We adopted her on Sunday. She is 8 weeks old.

    She's actually not jealous of the other birds. She thinks she's "special" because she gets to live inside.
    She loves to cuddle in your neck.

    @ Ms Grace: I would normally say "chicken" but with this group, I better reconsider.

    The blocks are so cute! Aren't you tempted to keep them all. They look so nice together.
    Just send the green Amazonian parrot to me. She doesn't fit in with all the chickens. LOL
    She is really cute!!!!!!
