Happy Almost 4th of July!

Okay, this past week I took a few days off and went to Anchorage, Chickaloon, Bethel, then Fishcamp! It was great. I have some pictures but yes I have yet again neglected to put them on my computer. I swear I need a laptop just for this use only! Anyway, we got some kings, and I was on my merry way back to Kotzebue. I landed in Anchorage and Sonnie picked Clara and I up and we headed to Alaska Mill and Feed to see if they in deed have feeders that I needed to complete my entire stock of stuff I need for the chicks. Yes, they did! We were there on my way to Bethel but the girl I asked was a little confused, maybe stoned, I don't know, and she told me that the baby chick stuff would be with the regular bird feeders that they have in this fancy room... uh, no! Anyway, we didn't have much time to look around and Sonnie and Troy and Tahlia in the car so I didn't want to keep her waiting for fear of her sanity going out the window so I just said F(&^ it. :) Then I went back and found them myself. So I am fully stocked up, I have 100 lbs of feed, 60+ pounds of hay, feeders, waterers, a heat lamp, a red 100 watt bulb, and a thermometer. :) The only thing I do need is the rest of my coop to be built, I think I'll bug Calvin this week about it. I just need some vent holes and misc. stuff like that done to it, otherwise I'm cocked and ready to pull the trigger on this chicken deal. haha. I might ask Cal if he would build me a little barrier box for when the chicks are little, so they don't go wandering around the coop, they will just be stuck in one spot until they can keep their own temp. Well, I'm off to do some more prep for my 4th of July booth. Come on over and let your kid win a fish. :) I'm SO excited for tomorrow, yeeeah...... right. :)
