pulled the plug...
No Carl Jr's....it just wasn't meant to be. Rather than his failure to perform - I prefer to think that he was just too much of a gentleman. As long as I have all the gear - will order some fertile eggs from his breed next spring to try out. I really want to see hatching happen since I've never seen it before.
Had a mouse run in my open door just before the big cold swooped in on us. Decided to just let him live it up for awhile while he could. Even put out some food and water for him. Had enough just before bedtime last night of his waking me up in the middle of the night, gnawing on papers under my counter. Rigged a ramp to a large Rubbermaid storage tub with some sunflower seeds in it. Turned out the lights and within 5 minutes I heard him "plop" in. Put the lid on and let him spend the night in there. Set him free by the barn once it warmed up this morning. He's on his own now. 42,51,34,0,B,0
