    Pbird- I'm so sorry. Try not to beat yourself up too much. We'd make a great pair right now-- better stay away from each other!! DH wouldn't know what to do!!!

    I guess they couldn't wait until winter lol. You know how chickens are. We have some sugar baby watermelons growing in various places where the chickens roam, I hope they don't develop a taste for them. It might make my son Kyle mad if they eat some, he's been watching those melons grow all season, they are his favorite thing from the veggie garden.
    Great pictures, pip'd. Straight on shots are a little hard to get sometimes, especially in focus like Rangi's shot. We've loved watching your chickens grow up.

    Yes welcome, what part of the city do you live in? We are on the Westside, near the 8 Second Saloon. How many chickens? We have 7 currently. The flock is always in a flux. Any pictures?

    John, you must do the math on your eggs vs. cost. Remember that picture I had with $1100 worth of eggs? The 10 egg shells? I haven't done the math lately, but now we've had about 240 eggs, divided into that $1100. Getting closer to $2/egg, waiting for the day it gets to $1/egg.

    Yesterday was my birthday and man did I hit the jack pot! First my mom gave me a pair of 12 gauge shot guns. We did not have any fire arms in the house, so these were much appreciated. Then one of the Grandmothers gave me this awesome antique rocking chair.

    Then my husband gets me a kitten. We have been talking about a cat for three years now.[​IMG]
    And now my sister is getting me another kitten so the other won't be lonely. Over all a fantastic birthday!

    Picture overload! I meant to upload these last night, but I was too tired by the time I got around to it. These were all taken right before I found the girls destroying my one and only pumpkin. :rolleyes:

    Cubby, one of my 8 year old Easter-egger hens:

    Debra Jo, a barred Rock hen:

    Freema, also a barred rock, telling me I am not giving her enough attention:

    [​IMG]


    Frou-Frou the blue splash Marans who has no concept of personal space, and Fancy the partridge Plymouth Rock being very tolerant of having Frou-Frou in her face:

    [​IMG]


    Rosie the golden Sebright:

    [​IMG]


    Kung-fu Rosie flying into the rafters for the night!

    [​IMG]


    She Who Sleeps Standing Up, the other partridge Plymouth Rock twin:

    [​IMG]


    Vespa the silver Sebright, who was being a ham:

    [​IMG]

    "Why yes, I am adorable."

    [​IMG]

    "...Ugh, what did I step in?"

    [​IMG]


    And three pretty eggs as they were laid in the nest:

    Roscoe had his neck feathers pulled by an aggressive hen during quarantine. Betting he's relieved to be away from her finally!
