We're calibrating the temp on the incubator right now. Sunday we ran to TSC to buy chicks....and they were out. We *could* have ordered some - yesterday - but, instead, I hit the 'net. TSC wanted $2.99 EACH for pullets.....I went to Cackle Hatchery and paid $1.99 each. TSC had a minimum of 25.....Cackle had a minimum of 15. We ended up ordering 20....some more Ameracunas, some Buff Orps, and some Black Australorps.
Then, I hit eBay looking for hatching eggs. Ended up at Gabbard Farms - last year, they put up auctions of eggs from BLUE hens. Yup - BLUE. We ordered 2 doz from them - a mix of Blue Orps, Blue-laced Wyandottes, and others. Not sure *what* we'll get, but hey - BLUE chickens! I can always go back and order some Blue-laced Wyandotte eggs from them if we don't luck out. She mailed them today.....hence the calibration of the incubator. :grin: At Himself's request, we're going to use it as a Science Experiment. :nods:
Got into a huge fight with SG last night - our first "real" fight. His fault - and he admitted it! - he made the statement that no one else in this house cares about cleanliness. He'd been itching for a fight since Sunday, so I let him have it. :sigh: Don't make absolute statements - they're almost never true. I think he got it out of his system...and he did apologize.
Got ink in yesterday - my printer is an Epson photo printer. The ink is $70 at Wally World. I ran thru the last batch in 2 weeks.....and we can't afford that! So, I hit eBay. Generic ink....*4* sets...$30 (or so...it wasn't even HALF retail for 1!). The ink works great - so I'll be stocking up. I'd much rather pay $30 every 2 months/3 months/whatever instead of $70/month!
Himself bought Herself a Pokemon game for her birthday - and it came in yesterday. I'm all teary - he spent HIS money on his sister! :ahhhhhhh: He's growing up....and that's good.
