Happy Easter to Y'all! I spent the day with my family yesterday. Today I am just going to relax. However tomorrow I might want to borrow one of Jen's chickens to dust my livingroom wink.png

You know what is awesome? Power outages. A power outage on a gorgeous, sunny day. Not windy, not stormy. Barely a cloud in the sky. Yet the power is out. It has been out for about an hour.

 

I can still be online for a bit because of the battery on the laptop and the internet being supplied through a cell phone hotspot.

 

But the INCUBATOR upstairs doesn't have such luxuries! This is so frustrating! I have covered it to insulate it as best I can, but I don't have the resources to do anything more.

Maybe someone hit a power pole?  It's happened here.

I love hypocritical grocery store foods. I have a special relationship with cheetos (although we meet only infrequently) big_smile.png

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?

Probably. I just wish I had a broody as backup. A few eggs in the incubator are only a few days away from hatching..

Do you have a power inverter in any of your vehicles?

Happy Easter everyone.

 

My eventful morning included getting ready for a sunrise service/breakfast at church.  In between getting food ready my son yells coyote.  So I shoot the coyote and go back to the food and sent DH out to get it.  He insisted on pictures then.  I managed to only get a little blood on my shoes!  Nothing like a bloody coyote and dressy WHITE shoes.  They cleaned up with peroxide.

Now I'm home to change into comfortable clothes and meet the rest of the family at my parents, then to DH family.  Family is nice but for once it would be nice to stay home on a holiday.  Enjoy your day everyone .... and all the cute chicks!

Is there a vaccine for that yet and is it any good? My vet hasn't suggested giving one to my dogs but as I'll be there for their heart worm tests this week, I'm interested to know. My dogs already get the lyme vaccine, I know it's not necessarily all that effective (I believe they dumped the one for humans?) but as I sometimes head to MA with my pups on vacation I want as much help as I can get. My sister lives in MA and her last dog got Lyme's even though she was vaccinated yearly.

I had never heard of this so I asked DH because he regularly traps raccoons. He has heard of it but claims it's pretty hard to contract unless you eat raccoon poop. Obviously, he doesn't know everything if you're talking about handling soil and walking barefoot. So how does it get into your system? And can dogs get this?

Hey Raz, do you own a Suburban, too? I cringe whenever DH tells me he just filled his.

We had 2 big meals at my in-laws farm the last 2 nights, everyone who drove up has to drive downstate today so Easter dinner was last night. Plus all the running around and visiting, I'm tired too. Told DH we're having Easter Pizza for dinner. Heh, he just asked if I was going to start the dough in the machine. I just fed him an egg salad sandwich! The man loves to eat.

I didn't get it either. I asked DH. He came right out with it. I said "oh".hmm.png In my defense, I was thinking this is a chicken board, we talk chickens, peeps keep trying to give each other roosters. So I understandably thought real roosters were involvedidunno.gif

I'm going to remember that next time DH makes me cranky.  I bet it'll take him a few minutes to get it.  LOL!



DH thinks that is a GREAT picture. Until I saw you were heading to church I was a bit worried that you dressed that way all the time on your farm. I took out a porcupine a couple weeks ago. DH was not home at the time, but even if he was no way was I going to hold it up by the tail for a photo op! Especially without gloves! Nice job! clap.gif
