    I really like raising these chickens I do wish there were not so many roosters. I dont think living in the country I am going too have any problems getting rid of them. Kids around here show them in 4h and ffa and there is a place too auction them off close by.

    What will you do with all the roosters? I've only had 1 rooster at a time, but heard they will fight if there is more than 1.

    These are pics of my 6 pots of variegated alocasia macrorrhiza. I have been quite stingy with them and have not shared any with anyone at all. I am sure you can see some pots have more variegation than others. I just keep hoping I can get these too grow bigger and bigger but this Oklahoma heat and sun dont help very much. Not so much for the plants I dont guess but when it gets so hot I dont pay very much attention too my plants. 3 of these pots set with their feet in the water so I really dont have too worry about them. Their only problem is that the neighboring plants are over crowding them. I have too much Green Ruffles and its getting huge and overshading some of the other plants. I have just started watering the ones not setting in water with liquid Mircle gro they have the time release already in their pots but I want too boost that a bit. might try some of my chicken manure in a couple and see how that does.lol I have also added a couple of pics of my new black or purple stem that I got off of ebay. Then one of the only AE AE that is growing in the ground it is really small

    Stephen thank you for your kind words. If was was 23 instead of 63 I might just do that or even 43 but my body is worn out and I am not too far from having too have an oxygen tank strapped on my back. I know I have said this before but I am going too start down sizing this year,
