By contrast using a diamond stone to maintain the flat surface of a water stone, while messier is much more effective.Time to take the chip off my chef's knife

You know what feeling sucks? When your are grinding away at a low grit for a long time and finally give up and go to an even lower grit... All that time just completely wasted.
Had to go all of the way down to my coarse diamond stone because I just wasn't making progress... I hate using that that thing because it leaves a real nasty surface behind that takes a lot of work with my next stone to clean up.
We have Americaunas - they are the hybrids that produce the blue-green eggs. Really lovely birds, quite productive and pretty cold-hardly too (we get down to -25ºC here and they are okay). Bear in mind that lots of unscrupulous dealers say their nondesript things are Americaunas, but a lot aren't... I couldn't tell you who are the reputable dealers in your area, unfortunately.Any advice on chickens to purchase, where, how? I have a soft spot for the blue eggs that I see homestead people sometimes post.
