    Me too - - "had" being the operative word, lol. She was one of the two EE/GLW pullets that were hatched out of our flock - her sister lays beautiful green eggs and is sweet as pie, the other one laid cream colored eggs and was a nasty little wench (named her Regina George for the girl from Mean Girls) -- she was one of the seven I sold the other day.

    They do some weird stuff with peanut butter -- DH eats PB and Mayo sandwiches and up where DD is going to school there is a place that is known for it's Peanut Butter Cheeseburger (featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on Food Network). Neither sounds at all appealing to me.........

    Twist, Megan is checking to see if pay pal can be hooked up to one of those prepaid cards you can buy at Walmart. I refuse to hook mine up to my checking account. To open another account just for PayPal will cost me $11 per month for service fees.

    The Walmart card will cost me &1.97 I think.

    Well I think I have an account now but not sure I did link to a credit card and saw no mention of monthly fees but haven't tried to use it either.

    Now I love peanut butter but not that much lol. Although the state fair has crispy cream game burgers that I've tried. It just as disgusting as it sounds. Now fried candy bars are a different story.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]Sorry, passion kicking in again. Up the game. No breakfast for Ben. Now, on a lead. leave it means ignore a moving object, what I tossed! (ball, toy, etc) , come to me and make eye contact. Treat, or a handful of his breakfast, or throw a different toy and let him fetch it! Wait it out, it may take a bit for him to give up on a moving object. Only say "leave It" once. Next, go to the chickens on lead. When he LOOKS at a chicken, say "leave it!" wait for him to come to you and make eye contact. BIG TREAT or, throw a ball! Now ... I read your post about him grabbing the tail feathers. IMO, after you know he knows "leave it" he will still grab chickens in your absence. He was a gun dog. He needs to re-learn to never touch feathers. So...once you know he knows leave it when he even looks at a chicken, IMO, it is now fair and necessary to use a remote trainer. I'm in trainer mode now and won't mince words or fluffy it up. Be sure you know how to use the collar. NEVER use it in anger. Dogs are pretty darned smart, so don't go buckle a collar on only when you have time to train. You'll only teach the dog not to eat chickens when the collar is on. I tape a piece of lead to their regular collar. Put the E collar on an hour before training so there's no association. Set it on Med. Have a pocket full of treats. Duct tape your mouth if needed, just watch. Stay way far away, uninterested. If he looks at a chicken, give a collar correction. Every time he looks at a chicken, give a correction. Try really hard to not let him notice you. If he happens to come find you to tell you that the chickens shocked him, give him a big reward and "good leave it!" This is so hard to explain.I'll shup now.
