THANK YOU!! to everyone that participated in that!!
I had know idea how these things are acquired till someone clued me in!! LOL
I appreciate the thought! I have made some good friends here!
to all the newbies, there is lots to learn, and there are quite a few people on here, that have EONS of chicken experience, so if you see peeps with lots of posts under their name, chances are they are our resident experts and I have learned a lot from them! I learn something everyday, not only about my chickens, but, from all the animals and people that are in my life!
Weather has been crappy, and cold, almost 30 something last night!!
had to set heat lamps up again, just to make sure everyone stayed warm. Hopefully going to make a road trip to get said turkeys and poults, and a few more Buckeyes!!
Ok, speaking of Buckeyes, these guys crack me up!! so, I was out trying to move my march 5th hatch chicks, which include 4 buckeye, and I had my tennis shoes on, all the buckeyes were trying to grab my shoelaces and started untying my shoes!! LOL!!
Everytime I took a step they would run up and grab a lace, then I would retie it and try to walk and they would run up and pull them loose again!! I finally had to pick them up and carry them outside so I could walk!!
On the goatie side of things, I had my friend who raises Boers come over and she said, ALL of my does are prego, and the ones that should kid mid May weren't bagging up yet, but, she said, sometimes they don't until the last min, so, we will see soon!
And last and certainly not least, here is a huge PET PEEVE of mine!! This same friend said that Saturday am at 530, some woman drove by her house and with a little kid screaming in the car yelling "no mama, no mama" dropped a dog off and drove off!! There are words I can not use on this forum to describe people like that!!
If you can't afford animals,....meaning (proper care, spaying neutering ect) then don't get them!!!!! Why do people have to make their problem someone elses??? It is very obvious this person, either had a female that they didn't alter and it had pups, or she got this pup from someone and couldn't take care of it!! And obviously they had had it long enough for the kid to get attached to it!!
There are plenty of places you can take them, not just the Humane society, especially over here!!
So my friend says, can you come over and tell me how old it is? She already has 6 dogs, that keep her place secure! And guess who ends up taking him????? ok do I have "sucker" written all over?? LOL!!!
Meet, Juan Pablo Gonzales Martinez Rojas!!!!! but, we call him Taco!!! LOL!! He is only,....maybe, 8 or 9 weeks! And so far, he is my shadow, and we are learning to be kind to chickens, ducks, and goats, ( he is as big as my friends goat kids) he was playing with them when I went to look at him!!! I think he is probably some kind of Chihuahua cross, possibly dachshund or maybe even Min Pin, who knows?? I knew my husband was gonna have my tail, so, I wrote on our white board, " I have three words to say" " Don't freak out! LOL
He has taken to kennel training and potty training nicely and as young as he is I am going to work hard at getting him chicken and goat friendly, he is curious, a little timid, and insecure, but, If you were thrown out of a car, you probably would be too!! Anyway, gotta call my vet and find out what the latest prices on vaccine's and deworming are!!!
