    Love seeing them Kurt! Your pics started me on a journey that is a long way from over. I do have my Gilbert 20, but I am also the proud papa of a Tigercreek 1 [​IMG]

    Hi! My beautiful Aussie hen has been hunting lizards! I caught her downing a sizable one today & she has spent most of her time today hunting them. Is this safe??

    She i
    She is a year old. I'm convinced she is the smartest of the bunch. Being the chicken dork that I am, I spend a lot of time watching my girls and the way she hunts them down is really intelligent. I'm sure she will teach the other girls.

    I'm new to FL too and I'm shocked at some of the things they pull out of the ground! My 2 week old turkeys are my BFFs right now because they have been feasting on fire ant piles.

    At least you do not need to spend hours and fuel cutting grass Kurt. [​IMG] I will never get tired of looking at your Black Australorps. They are incredible! Keep the pics coming please! ~Dee~
