    Invisible Fence - 2 years now!

    We wanted a fence to keep chickens in (7' high), not trying to keep predators out. The arrangement is visually pleasing as the fence is basically not seen once you are about 15 feet away from it. It is easy to put together and relocate as necessary...

    Your Duck is Dead (joke)

    A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away." The distressed...

    Does this egg look OK to eat?

    My wife is concerned when she sees this brown spot on an egg. She won't eat it. Would someone tell me what it is? I suspect it is normal even if it occurs on a very small number of eggs. Thank you in advance.
