    We have a crew of roofers here today.

    Banshee already flew up to the roof to scare them off.

    The dog won't stop barking because there are intruders.

    My kids don't have school. They are cooped up because they are terrified the shingles will fly off the roof and kill them... they have some crazy imaginations.

    My DH has been home from work all this week, supposedly "taking care of stuff around the house".

    I think 11 am seems perfectly reasonable to start drinking alcohol today.

    Eve gets very upset if I spend any time with a chicken. How dare they steal my attention from her! She puffs up into a strut and paces all around until I put the offending chicken down. If I'm sitting down though, she tries to peck the chicken until it leaves lol.

    Mountain Mom, I hear you.
    Except for the workers and the kids.
    The DH is home doing stuff, the dogs are crazy with chasing thunder, the turkey is gobbling and strutting. I think the thunder and barking are upsetting him.
    I need a drink since working isn't happening.

    Hello All,

    Quick question for you. Without any hens present to fight over and plenty of space to roam (1 acre at least), will 2 Toms get along? A friend has a lone Royal Palm and wants to get him a buddy, but I only have extra males. Don't want to give her bad advice and have it not work out. Thanks in advance!!

    MM...I hope you survived the day! I'm sorry, but the thought of Banshee joining the roofers just cracked me up! :lol:

    I have two Toms that are best friends. I free range except during breeding season. The two tome try to get together to hang out together during breeding time.

    That does not mean they do not have their little snood pulling contest and chasing each other, BUT mainly they get along great. Right now with the young toms I have about a dozen hanging out and getting along.

    I am coming down with a cold/sore throat.

    I am going to share with you my homopathetic (that is not a spelling error, I coined that word) cure.

    I would suggest all of you make this and take it now, If I am getting a sore throat you could too.

    It is made of three common ingredients everyone has in their home.

    2 parts hot water, very hot.
    2 part Yukon Jack Peppermint schnapps
    1 part Hot Cinnamon liqueur

    Drink liberal amounts until the sore throat is over

    I am right with you! Having one now, in fact.

    Hope you feel better soon. I am sure the homopathetic cure will take care of it.
