Re: Egg Picking



I realize this but I generally sell and trade the eggs rather than raise
them. I have my breeder pairs for now and once they get older I will start
raising the fry to take the place of those breeders. I currently have an
endless supply of 1.5 gallon show boxes. I have about 40 already stocked
with live food cultures. I pay $.99 for them at home depot and they are
always stocked so I can get as many as I need.

It takes me so long to make mops. When I make the ball at the top and go to
tie the piece around it I can never get it tight. I always need a third hand
and that's why I have trouble with them. Actually now that I just said that
I think I have an idea. Forget tieing yarn at the tops. I could use elastics
:) . I think I just made my mop making 100% easier.
