    Snickers crossed the rainbow bridge

    Dotty finally ate some canned food last night and a little this morning. She's doing fine inside. Before we moved to Texas she was an indoor dog so the transition has been as if she never were out all the time. She knows her doggie bed is her spot to lay down except at night she's up in my...

    Snickers crossed the rainbow bridge

    If she ignores some canned food tomorrow we'll make her up something she can't resist with rice added so it will be easy on her tummy.

    Snickers crossed the rainbow bridge

    Dotty still hasn't eaten any dog food so we have given her extra treats and lots of lovin. Funny thing is she has heard my son drum so much that she's sleeping right through it.

    I got a glimpse of that happy pup face for a moment just as she passed.

    Sad news about Preston the alpaca

    There's an alpaca farm about 40 minutes from us. I love it when we get to drive by it. I hate it when they are all in the back pasture and I don't get to see them. If we had the land I think I could talk my hubby into one easier than a horse.

    Snickers crossed the rainbow bridge

    Some of you may remember a few posts about my dog Snickers. We knew that she wouldn't take another winter. But this summer her slowing down came to a halt and she stopped meeting us at the door and we had to go to her. Unless we had a treat she wouldn't come anymore. She had lost weight and...

    Michigan Public Works employees save a Raccoon

    I'm glad they saved it and relocated it. Apparently it is legal to do so there. I'm not going to hate raccoons. I am going to keep a raccoon proof coop and run tho.

    Pamprin is a joke, Midol is worse - somebody help me before I lose my mind!

    I went to my OB and just happened to be raging with PMS at the time so you would think that if at any time a hormone imbalance would show up in the blood work. Nope. Nothing. She put me on a low dose birth control pill (had my tubes tied 12 years ago) and it just make me bleed all the time. Yep...

    probably wrong place to ask but people wanting to bring kids to see our farm

    You should have an area on the farm where you make your business transactions. They tell you what they want and you bring it to the area. Now this may not work for large livestock but for selling chicks it wouldn't be hard at all. When they tell you they want the "farm experience' you just tell...

    MO woman faces charges over dogs

    I'd say give her a big fine, several weekends of community service picking up trash, and take her dogs away. Sure she's got a kennel now but her attitude is atrocious. She seriously thought that her little nuisances killing a neighbors animal was humerus. That is the sign of a complete idiot. I...

    Shrink Wrapped Chicks

    My pre-coffee thoughts are wouldn't a package that's shrink wrapped be almost air tight so it wouldn't be done as the chicks would suffocate. I haven't gotten chicks through the mail but it seems to me they would be in marked live animal packages with several air holes.

    favorite candy bar?

    So the cure for gas is a candy bar? Why wait till you get gas? Be proactive. I love Butterfingers.

    I lost one of my ladies last night.

    So this morning I went out to the coop earlier than usual. I wanted to do some work on the coop before the heat hit. I was working on one end of the coop. One of my reds jumped in the coop and started bocking away. So I thought I'd check for eggs just in case. So I open the door to the nest box...

    Roosters crow!

    Roosters crow when they want to which is why I don't have any. I don't want 4am crowing. We have neighbors in the distance with roos but they are far enough away for it not to be bothersome even at 4am.

    Help! My hen won't lay.

    Without seeing pics I'll just say I have one EE that I don't think laid until she was about 9 months old.

    I think I have a broody

    All my ladies seem to like the same next box. Maybe one egg a day will be in the other nest box. So she's getting booted out of the nest box by the other hens several times a day. I think I'll go out and remove her a few times a day as well and see how that goes. I can keep the door to the other...

    I think I have a broody

    So now my ladies are a year old and I only have hens. I've noticed that the last two days one of my EE's has been staying on the nest. Each time my hubby and I have gone outside we've noticed that she's been in the coop. When gathering eggs I have to stick my hand under her and get the eggs. So...

    A Little Something to Make You Mad

    I don't see this as cruel at all. In fact I see it as an added measure of safety to ensure the safe trip and arrival of the ordered chicks.

    Light concerns

    I went with the red heat bulbs because it was much easier for me to keep the heat regulated. I had the white 60 watt the first day and on day two changed.
