do you have an under the porch ?
hey guys, this was my answer to #5 on my interview. not sure why she did it the way she did ??
If it can, I will .
This is my mantra . So many things happen around here so I asked my friends on my post Grannys gone and done it and this is a compilation of just some of their suggestions from previous posts.
I have 3 barn cats, one of them a sneaky little Siamese . I was in the barn feeding the chicks (where i found my dead EEs a week ago) and the cat was rubbing up against my legs. absent minded as normal, I reached down to pet him only it was NOT him. yup, a possum ! right between my legs For once i just wish something like that would happen when i dont have eggs in my hand. As i was giving the first ones eggs back, i got attacked by them both !! with only one finger bleeding and my pride in the dirt i came back in the house. worries of wild animals long gone.It was everything I expected and more !
2 of them chased that rooster for a good half hr. every where around that cop station and one of them was huffing so hard I thought sure he would pass out.
I got one in my hand when the wind caught the door and ripped the whole door off !! not at the hinge oh no, that would of been too easy. it took one door and the whole frame with it!!! i have an egg in one hand, corn in the other and a door flipping away from me. what to drop? not my egg of course
I guess it really dont matter camping . again I am so sorry. time for traps to be set. it will be back. tuna will work with all of them. keep the chickens locked up for a while . bout all that can be done . still got that camera going ?

sorry, this might be easier to read.

tell them you dont want to hear that !
OH NO !!!!! I am not going to urinate them off and have them walk out on me. I think its the stress of them trying to get it up and running in 1 day. They are trying to get the boiler hooked up and then have to do the plumbing part of the hot water heat. Looks like I am getting new thermostats as well. but not sure.
