Good for you and your chickens
Quick tip: type the words out properly and use more puncuation. This will make your posts easier to read and people will be more likely to read them rather than giving up in the first sentance.
Wendy, its not just you..
I have to read, and re re-read my posts before submitting as my typing is soooo bad..
Im a 2 finger & thumb typer. Im quick, but have shockingly bad accuracy, and I almost never use capitols in a first draft... I have to go back & make most of the "i" into capitols or "i" would be a mess.
Looking forward to your next post
