    I know they were just doing their job, but would it have kill them to at lease knock on the door and let us know, so could have put the chickens up? I know they have to had seen the chickens loose. The chickens always hang out on the side of the yard where the cop came in. When they left they didn't shut the gate right and we had to chase 2 chickens up and down our street.

    Geese are very serious about commitment, devoting themselves to one bird for a lifetime. After a goose dies, its mate will undergo a rigorous mourning process, including weight loss, separation from the flock and submission to other geese. Eventually, the goose will find a new mate in another bird that has lost its partner.

    Okay, please add all the names of everyone's flocks and the meaning of their names and how old each one is and where they got them and which one is the flock leader and what their favorite treats are and . . .
    THANKS, Brad, for all the updates and THANKS Quinstar/Erin for holding down the fort for so long by handling all the spreadsheets!!

    You could sell the guns. What could you do with a dead kitten?

    ok wow......spent the last two and 1/2 days just catching up on posts!!!!!!!!!![​IMG] phewwww!!!![​IMG] absolutely love all the pictures that people have posted and I am also so very sad to hear about the losses of chickens, horses, and other birds. Nature can be so cruel sometimes.

    On a different note, the girls are getting through this wacky and crazy early molt. I am happy to report that one of my white layers has started laying again!! Yay!! we are in egg deprivation mode and i have missed their yummy eggs(as well as some of my co-workers who constantly ask me everyday if they have started laying again!)

    CityHen~~welcome to the forum! (i know this is late) just wanted to say hello to a fellow indianapolis chicken person.

    Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!!!!

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]For the past month or so, my hens have not been laying normally. My EE took a few weeks off and is laying again. My RIR decided to lay an egg in the flower bed today and she's never done that before. Maybe they need to start wearing tin foil hats. Something strange is going on.
    I'm still faithfully catching up on old posts . . . Btw, someone asked about Night Owls. I have always been one although I've had to conform to society and sleep "normal" hours for much of my life. Now that my schedule is more flexible, I typically sleep (off and on) from 2:00am - 9:00am. I am one of the few on this thread who is on Central time, so that's one reason I'm one of the late posters.

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Speaking of posters, I love WPA posters. Thanks for posting this one:[/FONT]

    My RIR has a floppy comb and I'll never forget reading in my first chicken book that a RIR with a floppy comb is UNDESIRABLE. How rude! My RIR thinks it's quite fashionable.
    Julie0477~ My EE hen looks like yours! And danands!
    Your Silkie mommy and chicks pictures are adorable. How are they doing?

    Several members who solely use cell phones to access BYC have not been able to change their avatars. Does Tapatalk make that do-able?
