Ralph, your weather sounds brutal. I was supposed to be in Grand Forks this week and refused to go. I'll handle things by phone. I just do not own clothes for weather like that.

Yep I did smile.png I love them smile.png The 3 mottled blacks and 1 of the Palms came from him. The other palm I got at a swap.
Lol, I seriously doubt that! I actualy sold a trio of them just because I couldn't bring myself to butcher Dinner. He was way too sweet! I kept the two hens with the most white spots smile.png

You know they get more white tipping with every molt, right?

I can easily tell my old hen because she has at least twice as much white on her. She is also the most aggressive at eating from anyone's hand, she's just fearless around people and some people are afraid of her because she is so insistent on tasting anything offered to her, even clothing (oh, that shirt is not something you brought for me? my bad . . .).

Raising lots of fun poultry: Cream Legbars, Welbars, Bielefelders, California Greys, and 6 colors / sizes of Ameraucanas

I hope we get above Zero before Monday, It does not appear we will.

 

I am signing a petition to increase the speed at which global warming will occur.   I may even become an activist for it.

It's 45°F here today but tomorrow is predicted for a blizzard and a low of -20°F.

No, I didn't realize that. The two hens that went with Dinner, one had almost no white on her and the other was anti social. The two mottled hens that I kept, Cuddles and Juliet are wonderful. Cuddles will come running to me every time I walk outside (since she's one of my escape artists). She'll wiggle in for a big hug and lately has been squatting every time I touch her lol. Juliet isn't a hugger but she's a taster lol. She likes to nibble on fingers and also grabs shirts, strings, pants, hair, anything that might possibly be tasty or anything to get attention, one or the other lol

What kind of quail? I was thinking they might be neat to get a few.

all mine are tasters.. none are snugglers.. they pull things out of my pockets and run off w/it

one of the jakes wing slapped me when it first got cold... I was fixing to have a turkey dinner :somad when I realized he was looking at my gloves... I took one off and let him take it.. he played keep away with the other jakes and then stomped it... :gig

I got it back intact and he no long has an issue w/it and hasn't wing slapped me since.

Hens: 4 Black Jersey giants,  2 BR, 2 ISA ,  ...1 mix roo  ... labor day chicks 3 BJG mix (1 pullet), 1 BO mix pullet .. . Halloween chicks: 2  barred rock mix (1 pullet) and 4 cornish cross mix (1 pullet).... Turkeys: 1 BBB hen ,  4 Narragansett jakes  Yummy.....

1 dog 2 cats

If the hen defends her chicks beneath her wings; how much more shalt thou be safe beneath the wings of God ...

Oh geez! Mine can't help but fiddle with anything new to them. And yes they will check my pockets. And they are constantly on my heels. Just hanging around. I usually sit in my chair before bedtime & hand out a few treats. Thats the only time they get treats. Funny enough, Annie will go stand by that chair & trill at me. She's figured it out. lol.png
