It was seriously insane and he's got 2 black eyes. See? Poor guy!!!! I don't know what is wrong with her though...do I get rid of her now that she has a proclivity to attack faces? She's a black Australorp

And a few gooses, and some ducks and maybe even a few bunnies. May as well get it all done at once. Hmm, I wonder, what can I do with those huge bunny feet?

See if your dog will eat the chicken feet. Nice source of gelatin...you might be able to put them on Craigslist for raw feeders.

Not sure about the bunny paws...dry them out and sell as lucky rabbit feet?

I understand that they make a really hearty broth. A gelatiss brew of concentrated broth. Just a thought.

I agree - she should go to freezer camp NOW.  She could have caused the child serious damage - even blindness.  But apart from her freaking out, children shouldn't hold birds near their face,

 

Chickens are attracted to shiney eyes and even just a curious peck can cause a lifetime of misrery for someone.

Phew . .I'm beat.  Foundation took longer than I had expected, but the new nail gun sure made quick work of the walls.  South wall (8') is framed, as is the west (24'), north wall (8' with door) is cut as is the east wall (24' with window).  So two walls to nail up, then the rafters and roof sheeting. Should have no trouble finishing up tomorrow.  4312 has pictures.

 

One more beer and I'm hitting the hay.

 Your very lucky she didnt get his eyes, but with that said I would give her a chance she is young and he is young. It might have been to much on her today to loose the others. Im pretty sure everyone will tell you to get rid of her but I wouldnt just yet. How old is she?

I too was not even born when the Mt. blew. I was not born untill April 85'

 

Well, tomarrow I will be haning flyers to find my sister. The only thing we found out is that not only does she have friends EVERY where, but she has been all the way to Tacoma by her self before and has friend out there too. Also she could be with a girl named Destiny(?) I guess this girl took off on the 10th and my sister the 11th. Destiny called her mom on this past Thursday and told her that she was with another white girl but would not give her name ( assuming my sister) also she tried convincing her mom that they were in Levensworth(?) or Spokan. But they had tracked her phone to Everett, by the time they got there she was no where to be found!

 

Here is the most recent picture of Rachel with blond hair,  but it is from a year ago.

Rachel.jpg

 

She is now platnium blond (no pink)

Blue/green eyes, they change between the two colors.

She is very short for her age, about 4'11",

Weighs between 90#-100#'s

 

I know some of you are very far away but she could be anywhere by now. We do have family in Spokan and Wenatchee.

I would apriciate it if you guys just kept an eye out, just be more aware of the kids around you, one of them could be her.

 

Really needing some thing good to happen soon, loseing my baby and now possibly loseing one of my baby sisters. I am going insane, I am tired from crying every day but when night rolls around I can't sleep from all the thoughts running through my head.

 

Makes it even worse because my dad could care less. Thanks you every one for all your concern.

Proud Momma of 5 wonderful children. Support from the greatest husband at my side. Kept company by a Great Dane, Mastiff and a Dane/Lab/Shepherd mix. Pest control from 2 cats, Pigs now in the freezer. Turkeys didn't make it past the Hollidays. Many breakfasts and lots of laughs and great times provided by over 30 adult LF chickens of many breeds! Now on our adventure to buy a new Farm.

CR:  LOL. All my birds are small and spindly you wouldn't want them. 

 

Nature:  I built a bucket with nipples...I can't get the birds to use it. Course I still have their bucket of water to dip from. I dont' want to take it away from them. How do you teach them?  I tried to hang something shiney off of it so they would go for it...but NO. Still nothing.

You have to take it away for a little while. Do it at night so they are thirsty in the morning and then use your finger to push the little thingy and make water drip. they will be curious and wanting water so one or two should then peck at the nipple and realize that water comes out of it. They will alway drink the "easier" way, but you can teach them. If they don't get it after 5 min or so, then come back in another 15 min and try again. If that doesn't work then put the original waterer back in and try again another day. Hope this helps!

Thank you. this make sense. I will have to try this some time soon.
