I like your imagination, where do my old fashioned ways fit in?
Might be a little high for you also....you would be better at jumping and swinging the axe then me though....you know I do not have that kind of coordination, I would probly chop everything but the target.
Thanks for the laugh.
MC, keep in mind that every now and then someone would need to be sacrificed to go look for supplies, in the name of safety of course.
omgosh!!.....yeah, always have to keep THAT in mind....
We lost one today, not really sure of the cause... They are ~12-13 weeks old now and all seem to be happy and healthy, except my daughter's 'special' chick - a blue cochin. I had started wondering if she was a bantam because she just wasn't getting as big as the rest of the chickens (black australorps and RIR). I haven't spent much time out there over the last few weeks bc of the new baby, but this week I noticed she just wasn't running around much or getting excited about food like the other chickens. They didn't seem o pick on her, and she did eat, just wasn't 'enthusiastic'. This afternoon I went out and she wasn't in the run.. she was laying in the coop on her side with her head back like she was dead, but she was still moving a little. DH and I tried to give her some electrolyte water and she swallowed it and tried to get up but couldn't. DH tried to help her but she just flopped around the like she was broken. I feel like we could have done more to try to save her, but DH decided it was too late and took care of the rest. She wasn't attacked, but definitely seemed 'broken' (like, wretched into an unnatural position) when DH tried to stand her up - any ideas what could have caused her death? My daughter is heartbroken :(
so sorry...especially when it is all of the sudden like that....
