Exactly. The other two I knew were aspergill (because there's a common fungus that was named Aspergillus because it looks like an aspergill), and paludal (from some readings about malaria). Alas, I cannot otherwise attribute any to a particularly spectacular vocabulary... (all smoke and mirrors!)

@BantyChooks
 - I know diddly squat about homemade incubators, but it occurs to me - is this the one you cut a hole in the side of for viewing/candling during lockdown? If so, are the seals around that ok?

This is hysterical... lau.gif

I had one I used as an impromptu work area when building one of my coops. It was great until we had a storm. it was shredded, metal poles bent and twisted - I was glad no-one got hurt... (It gets windy here...)


Neat  to know - thanks!!!


I subscribe to ProMed at work and see these. It's worrisome to watch a disease march its way across the landscape...ep.gif
Yes, the door slides in perfect.

My turkeys will literally fly at my face if I have meal worms. LOL I have gotten them to let me pet them while they eat, and if i'm REALLY lucky, they'll even let me set them on my lap and pet them. I've won over the ducks, I've got my silkies who are still inside in a brooder trained to do tricks on command. (they jump on command, come on command, and we'll be teaching them how to identify shapes on command, as that's one of the tricks to this dog training course my husband wants to go through, is week #1, they use chickens to train people how to train using positive reinforcement only, because chickens don't do negative reinforcement, and it's a useful tool for dog training for tracking and search and rescue.) hubby's too cheap to go to their academy, but he's been watching videos, and trying to teach himself their techniques... so now he appreciates us having all these chickens.

 

this particular rooster, won't even come to me with treats, and I haven't had time to corner or chase him around and I don't want to traumatize him.... :( 

 

 

I found the following story after a short "Google"

 

Lesson of the Plucked Chicken

 

During those final days of the collapsing Marxist experiment in the Soviet Union, Soviet novelist Chingiz Aitmatov retold the following story, which has been paraphrased here.

On one occasion, so it was narrated, Stalin called for a live chicken and proceeded to use it to make an unforgettable point before some of his henchmen. Forcefully clutching the chicken in one hand, with the other he began to systematically pluck out its feathers. As the chicken struggled in vain to escape, he continued with the painful denuding until the bird was completely stripped. “Now you watch,” Stalin said as he placed the chicken on the floor and walked away with some bread crumbs in his hand. Incredibly, the fear-crazed chicken hobbled toward him and clung to the legs of his trousers. Stalin threw a handful of grain to the bird, and it began to follow him around the room, he turned to his dumbfounded colleagues and said quietly, “This is the way to rule the people. Did you see how that chicken followed me for food, even though I had caused it such torture? People are like that chicken. If you inflict inordinate pain on them they will follow you for food the rest of their lives.”

Ravi Zacharias, Can Man Live Without God, (Word Publ., Dallas: 1994), pp. 26-27
