Check me out! I am a winner!!!
....at least, that is what I tell myself.
I get a super-schaweeeeeet yogurt maker for my first stink-eye cake post!
At least I think it is a pet. It doesn't look like a Phoenix Ratbird, nor does it act like one.
It let me pick it up without any hastle, and was content to hang out in the coop/run while the chickens and turkeys free-ranged.
Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?
I am betting it is a pet, but...

Hello Fellow Hatchaholics!
As the Easter Hatch rolls up, some of us hatchaholics find ourselves scrambling to fill the lonely gaping void that is our incubators.
Do you hear yours calling to you too? Does it cry out for eggies?
Then join us.....join us.....
We'll have some informal...
Don't worry, this isn't that kind of thread.
Indeed, my intention here is to describe, examine, discuss, and perhaps learn more about the number one weapon in the chicken's offensive/defensive arsenal: The Stink-Eye.
Lesson One: What is a stink-eye?
There is a common misconception as to...
Sir Puffs Alot decided to throw down with one of the dogs. At first glance it didnt look so bad, but once the DH got home we were able to look at it more closely.
There is a 4" long tear on the breast, significantly deep ~2". There is significant bruising and some swelling...
Hey girlfriend! Your Granchickies are here!
FYI- I got a 100% Hatch Rate on the Shipped Eggies. I got 12 out of 12!
And of course, I have to give props to my chicken model handlers: The DH and the BIL.
Unfortunate shot of the BIL...
Hello my peeps!
I noticed this weekend Sir Fluffs A Lot had a whitish bump on his bottom beak.
Today said bump looked quite a bit bigger---and it almost looks like his palet is a little swollen. I haven't stuck my hand in there to check.
It rained last week, which is AZ...
Calling all BYC Crafters!
I am running a giveaway on my website: thehenway.com
I have more stuff to do than I have time to do them. So, I am offering up these blown-out turkey eggs to anyone who wants to toss their name in the hat.
These are the first five eggs laid by my turkey hen...
Two of my turkeys have had chronic sinus infections. Regular ol' Duramycin seems to have very little effect: basically it reduces the swelling for a week, and then the gals are suffering again.
I did my BYC search, and it seems Tylan is the most reccomended treatment--but I would...
Seriously, I did not need another hobby. The blame for this one rests SOLELY on your shoulders. All those beautiful quilts you and the other quilting artistas keep showing off... Now I am knee deep in fabics, thread, ideas, and cutie-patotiee decorative elements. I spent every lunch...
A while back you all voted Salty Pullet was really a Salty Dog Roo. Does the BYC ruling still stand?
This sneaky chicken will be 5 (maybe 6) months old. No crowing, but I have bajillion other roos & only 2 dominant crowers.
It is time to cause some trouble!
Of course, this is just a noise ordinance, like some town's have against "male poultry which disturb the peace", but still, really?
[Laree giggles maniacally, plans mischeif]
The baby is emptying the stash of toilet paper from the laundry room. He can only carry 2 at a time, and there are at least 2 Costco packages in there.
Each case has what? 48 rolls?
One round trip is approximately 100 baby-steps...
I have never quilted.
BUT- I have been saving my favorite outfits (high-quality onsies/shirts/pants with things on the butt) from each of my spawn. My intention was to turn them over to my office's resident quilter, & then pay her to make me a quilt. Unfortunately, she was laid off and then...
Here is a random picture game:
I post a picture --or series of pictures---- and you have to guess what I Googled. Then you post your picture(s)
If it is obvious enough, you don't necessarily need to wait for confirmation.
Would be "Albino Alligator".
If I had only posted...
