    Rehric00- she looks like my sex link.

    Thanks for the opinions on my hen too. I wondered because she has white ears. Her feathering does match some of my other EE's also

    Hobbles are placed on animals to limit stride length. It was more commonly done to horses to allow them to walk around and eat near a campsite on the plains, but not run away.

    I did it to keep the new girls from chasing down my other chickens and killing them. It quickly became apparent that the situation was opposite to what I expected, so I removed them so the new girls could run away when being harassed.

    Sevin is garden safe. No need to wait. For fruit, wash before eating.

    For chickens, pluck before eating.

    For eggs, remove shell before eating.

    Poem:
    My mother feeds me chicken
    It always makes me cough
    I wish that when she fixes it
    She'd take the feathers off.

    she could lay a white egg, you never know. most people think that their EEs are fir sure going ti lat blue ir greeen eggs, tht is not true. they can lay blue green pink brown, and white. I have yet to have one lay white but know of people who have had one. Now her feather pattern is probably the most common feather pattern out of EEs.

    X2 it wont affect the eggs at alk a they dont ingest any so there is no way that it could affect them. Now if your chicken does eat some that could be an issue i have never had it happen.

    I had to do the same with mine :) Although I am still keeping an eye on them in case they suddenly turn into vicious killers!

    Went to the doctor yesterday. Apparently eating my chickens' eggs compared to store bought has brought my cholesterol down 30 points. [​IMG]How do I reward myself after hearing that? Fried pork chops and peas with lots of butter...

    After I got off work yesterday I went straight up to the farm to feed the chickens. I could hardly get out of my Jeep because I was surrounded by chickens and turkeys! I don't have a husband or human kids to come home to, but that doesn't bother me when I have 20+ birds at my feet making all kinds of racket when I get home!! Maybe they are just waiting to see what treats or scraps of food I have with me, but it's nice either way.

    I like the way you celebrate! Congrats!
    Sounds like when you come home, your kids greet you as if they were dogs, only without the barking and jumping on you. AWESOME!
