    I am pretty sure this is the first time i have dreamed of him and he was asking me to take him home. He had peed himself (he did that a lot) was in a nursing home and had an important piece of mail with him he wouldnt let anyone else see. also it was his birthday. in real life that would of been my sisters and my birthday as well.

    My dad died when I was 11. I don't remember dreaming about him. I cry if I get to thinking what I missed out on.

    I think part of the reason they're goofy is cause they can't see. Things appear out of nowhere & scare them. I plan on a trim around the eyes. :)

    My dad died when I was 10. When I was about 15 I kept dreaming he was still alive and couldn't find his way home...... I was having enough trouble with my teen years and couldn't bend my mind around this dream.

    It has been nearly 48 years, I have come to grips with the fact that a dream is just a dream, but it took a long time. I still think about him every day......

    Some are some are not, does depend how much they can see too. I think a lot goes on how much time spend with them as chicks and I mean from day one. The chicks I have hatched and not handled as much as others have been far more spooky and crazy. Yet the ones I have mauled everyday from hatch have been far better and very friendly.
    Did you add your polish to some new ones? I've forgotten what I read now :old If you have they will be spooky and flighty. I've had a swop round with some of mine since the 3 went and there have been some right carrying on's happening. 2 of my most tame ones are scared to death if the white crested go up to them!! They run like they are running for their lives!! They have been next to each other for months when I added them so they should know each other. Nothing major when I put them in just the usual pecking order pecks but you would seriously think they are being attacked.

    It can be tamed out of them, several times a day pick them up and hold them till they settle if you do it enough they should come round they are friendly and nosey parker breed.

    I did move the polish. I also gave them a proper mohawk . Im thinking its the first time they have seen anything by their actions. Flying into the chicken wire on the roof.
    Very hot out today . I dumped the chickens water , It had denaguard in it and they do their best to not drink. I figured with this heat they needed all the water they could drink. No one sick hasnt been for a long time I just figured if i was putting them under stress with the move I would throw some in. I do however have a serama with a little bit of purple comb. a rooster. acting fine .

    Memory's of our loved ones long gone . Its a sad thing. If you have faith not so bad with the thoughts you will see them again. Its the doubt that hurts . I have lost many, they are all in my heart.

    I'm afraid she has become attached to it. Wasn't impressed when I said it was getting the chop. But she has the other roo, the frizzle cross one and now this polish is crowing it will only be a matter of time untill they start fighting over the girls. She has them all in a run so it's not like they have a lot of room to free range and get out of each other's way. Plus the cross roo (Stan) is becoming a giant, he would have the polish breakfast I reckon in a few more weeks. I'm going to give her the little frizzle pullet I have here when it's a little bigger.
    Hope that will pacify her a little. She thought I was going rehome the polish :gig



    I have to say more and more of these chicks out in the shed are looking more male than female :mad:
