    We marked her with purple because she look identical to her sister.

    This was my first attempt at moving a broody turkey and I was surprised how quickly she accepted life in the house.

    I posted an ad on craigslist about call ducklings for sale. While I'm not anxious to sell the little guys, I am curious to know the response to the ad. It's just local right now, but I plan on putting it for the Nashvillle area too.

    Are you using the Memphis Craigslist now?

    She looks perfectly fine right where she is. Like she was raised there.

    Ha Ha, I don't think anything can compete with the sheer quantity of property value lowering noise that Guineas make!

    The picture is a few years old. I still have Piggy.

    I have in the past; I've had many replies about serama from the Nashville area; not so Memphis. But I'll do Memphis now-it is closer and it just takes 5 minutes to make the ad.

    But they are such fun, interesting birds to have around. I'd sneak a few into the flock accept I'd never get away with it. Maybe in the Spring. I'm hoping by then I can show Kimmi I am not overdoing and she'll quit fussing every time I mention new critters. She constantly worries I'm heading for another stroke even though the doctor says not.

    Yes, that will be interesting to gauge the response.

    Too funny-my first ad response from a guy who wants to trade phoenix chicks for call ducklings-chicks he bought from me! There was no way for him to know that ahead of time as I use CL mail relay when selling.

    But to be honest it would not have been the first time I've traded to get my own stock back again.

    I could use some of that about now. I do prefer straw though even though some duck owners claim hey is better-HAHAHAHA I am a desperate soul in need of a good laugh or two.

    At 3:00 I took pity on the ducklings outside and went out to collect them. I needn't have worried; while I stood by their pen cold and shivering, the duckling continued their play in a big pan of water; apparently too stupid to know they were cold. I brought them indoors.

    Baby birds are just like kids, don't feel the cold or excess heat.
