    And I don't mean the goblin. Apparently Redcaps, developed in England, are a laying and ornamental breed, and their conservation status is "critical". I've never heard of them and just saw them in Pocketful of Poultry (love that book) so I was wondering if any of you guys had any. [​IMG]

    The upstairs to our house was never finished. The walls are cardboard nailed to the studs. It's basically a fancy attic that could double the square footage of our house.

    There IS a toilet, but no sink or walls. Just a functioning toilet.

    It's husband's.

    I don't know if husband has ever cleaned it.
