    we got our 1st flock of birds this morning. ashley only got 3 pics & these pics do not do these houses justice.... there are baby birds EVERYWHERE!!:eek: we have 5 houses total, the front 2 houses are smaller & only have 9,000 in 1 & 7,000 in the other, the other 3 have approx 13,000 birds per house.:eek:

    we worked until 2 am to get things ready for these birds & troy was back down there at 5:30. last night was the latest we worked, but its been steady since we bought the place in august & there is still SO MUCH left to do.:eek: its all a little overwhelming.....

  7. Ya know, Rosie, looks to me like you are soon gonna have a real, well, you know, a real chickens**t operation going there!!! :D;):p

    :::::::"ducking"::::::: Oops, another pun! ;)
  8. That was a crappy way to phrase it;)
  9. Holy Chicken Poo, Batman! Can you say" Honey Wagon?"

    When Jessie was 2, she really loved animals. We went to see a customer of mine, who invited us to see her newborn goats. They were sooo cute. Well Kim had chickens too. She took Jessie in the coop to find some eggs. Jess was wearing these hot pink pull-on boots. The chickens were fascinated. They flocked to the boots till Jess had backed into a corner. The look on her face was priceless. She didn't know whether to scream, cry, or laugh. But finally she smiled, when she realized the chickens were just curious. Such a good flashback! :)

    Good luck w/ the chicks, Mama Hen, Rosie! :)
  10. Hey, if Rosie made a video of the chickens, would it qualify as a "chick flick?" :D;):p
