post #18072 of 52281

DW & I were here in the basement about 30 min. ago when we heard what sounded like someone knocking on the sliding glass door or a window. I went to the door...nobody in sight. DW looked out a window...nobody in sight. At that point, I expected to find my buddy's truck in front of the house, meaning he'd be down in the blind, hunting for deer...no truck. Shortly, I went out to bring in another load of wood, and discovered  4-5 chickens next to a clear plastic window well cover. They'd evidently been pecking at it; sounding for all the world like someone knocking!

3 Little Red Hens (RSL),1 big BCM rooster , & a raft of their youngin's

Not but 3 kinds of snakes I'm afraid of; big ones, little ones, and live ones

Have Crappie rod, will travel

Call me Ken,Whites, Whitey, or Red Dog; just don't call me late for supper

Very nice! Pretty cool the cedar grew and was milled on your property!

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

Funny story - this is Astrid, my EE. She is a very sweet bird, who has a special relationship with my daughters chi-pug mix, wally.

 

Wally likes to chase the birds... well Astrid realized that wally is playing games, and if you watch long enough, he chases her around, will stop and puppy bow and the next thing you know, he's being chased by her, and you just see this blur of silver waddle past you as she chases him circles in the yard.

 

I haven't quite figured out if she's playing the same game he is though, but since neither seems overly stressed out by the antics.... I've let them be.

 

She's quite the girl.

lol

Never heard they were. Here we see a pretty good mix of bantams and LF at the fair.

No, not today; they seemed to be enjoying where they were. Mon., Wed. & Fri. are their days to have house privileges.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

Because a chicken that weighs 2 lbs is going to be WAY easier to handle and hold than a chicken who is say, 8 or 9 lbs.
