    The Evolution of Atlas: A Breeding (and Chat) Thread

    This is the Paul Harvey thing. I could read it over and over. And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “I need a caretaker.” So God made a farmer. God said, “I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again...

    Thankyou for sharing that. Sometimes I get to feel odd that I do enjoy being alone. You make me feel like I'm not the only one who feels like this. I do have my chickens who will eat up any Time I give them. The horse needs alot of maintenance. And I always find that I am not lonely if...

    My chickens are still good and I'm still trying to train my 3 Ferns to NOT peck my legs! I have tiny bruises on my calves! It's supposed to dip into the teens tomorrow night - Brrr! I ended up cleaning/collecting/spreading horse manure. My mule was being repaired. So I must have cleaned up...

    I generally hold the chicken like a football except same hand is pulling their wattles down and that opens their mouth. Then I use a 1ml syringe and put it in all the to the back of the throat and shoot. I figure if I put the syringe in to the back of their throat it passes the trachea.

    Tolbunt Polish

    I had a beautiful Tolbunt roo. He was happy and healthy . When he was 5, he started to get bumbles, lots of them. It got to where he couldn't walk and I had to provide him with a funeral. He carried Marek's which I knew. So I'm thinking a common ailment got out of control , staph, due to a...

    Sorry to hear about Sissy. I think there's poor genetic lines maybe by over breeding or breeding birds with problems way before you get them. I had 4 Creveceours (?) and each died of something different but they did all die. I am very happy with the Houdans. I have my 2nd batch. They are...

    Me, who didn't cook for 14 years now has a new kitchen and do cook , let's say infrequently. But mostly special meals. I actually cooked Thanksgiving last year. So my endeavor for Tuesday is inviting DD and family over and making lamb shanks, Spaetzla (german noodles?) with pan fried onions...
