    I was playing "beat the sun" home so I could rush around and get all the outdoor chores done before it got dark -- and having a lovely chat with my mommy on the phone!!!! Home now, chores done and stealing a few minutes to sit down before I get started on dinner and inside chores.......

    Good afternoon everyone. I always seem to win the worse mom of the year award... totally forgot about my sons birthday. Thank God I looked at my calendar and figured it out... so this mamma has been baking a ham and cooking a preholiday dinner for the 16 year old, went and did quick present shopping and bought a pepperidge farm coconut cake and cheese cake... Got it all done before he got home and he is thankfully happy. My brain needs to start working.. this isnt the first time I forgot my childrens birthday until the last minute.

    Thanks. :hugs It's the risk of free ranging. I'm hoping to save up some $$$ to get nice quality stock on the spring, to boost my flock numbers.

    Thanks Mare, I just feel horrible when that happens. My memory is shot by all the meds I take.
    Camping, I choose free ranging too, next spring though, I have decided to create a big hoop coop area for the birds. I miss my back yard.

    Yesterday gd caught 3 week old chick by the tail and brought it to me. She is barely 2 years old and goes with me to feed them. If they are hungry they bail out the door of their little coop. Im adding a pic of her.

    I got my first as a pet when I was 17. The neighborhood kids came through our yard going to the bus or to play. I always had kids knocking at the door to pet something. The kids pulled grass to feed Thumper (who also had the amazing talent of throwing his butt around while peeing & got 6 kids at once.) This went on for years until one day Sharon held the grass out to him with her thumb up. He bit clear through her thumbnail. I got a letter from the health dept requesting that I keep him caged for 10 days and report any sickness or death.

    Another bite was my right ring finger when I reached into Licorice's cage to get her out. I have never heard a rabbit growl and scream at the same time before or since then. She laid my finger open in a semicircle and I had a scar for years. I got my revenge as rabbit pot pie.
