    Thats so typical. They do NOT like me much at the Local PO. I call them a LOT the day before, and am there at 5 am so my eggs or babies do not get lost!
    Reading more about it. Guess I wont be buying popeye's or lee's, KFC anymore. GMO and weird food continues to get worse.

    Thunder Chicken~ Re your nice fenced-in yard . . . Jchny had a good point about you placing patio furniture or some foliage for your chickens to hide in. They feel safer if a large bird flies over or if they hear a dog, etc. if there is something for them to quickly hide under. You could always use portable things like a box or lawn chair or wheel barrel, etc.

    You are a good person for saving that dog. If the dog gets on your husband's nerves, you could offer to find it a home if he would agree to six more chickens. When a stray striped tabby cat showed up several years ago, I knew he was a keeper when my husband started calling him Tiger.

    Btw, my dear son Max (he was actually named after a beloved cat) installed a new hard drive in my iMac. Yay! I had to spend ten hours catching up on work-- that's why I am just now looking at the thread. Boo!

    Actually, those animals are pretty smart. Humans have to pay for fecal transplants to relieve intestinal ailments.

    I think you're right, Too Fast. Even though he denies it, we shouldn't be surprised when Old Salt is on an episode of Doomsday Preppers. I figured that's why he's always talking about increasing his flock. Poultry Shows, he says. Right!
    Personally I have seen a few parts of the Doomsday show and I feel so sorry for the kids of these crazy people. The kids are constantly terrified that something horrible is going to happen because that's what their parents tell them! I call it child abuse/torture.

    I think the chickens probably die from fright from your method of humane killing.
    Quinstar~ Congrats on your first egg! It bet it was Lavon's because she looks like she's pregnant again. And she's wearing one of those color-coded gang bracelets.
