    they are impressive! Someone is selling supposedly pure ayam cemani hatching eggs however at the price they are selling for I highly doubt they are pure.

    I came home yesterday afternoon to find these two hanging out together. My rooster Firecracker has taken in the new frizzle I acquired from a friend. Eating out of the same bowl and everything. He's such a big softy. :)

    Here is their info http://centralindianaorganics.com/about.htm. They are in Lebanon which isn't that close to me but its on our way to see family. I just get enough to last awhile.
    I love the Japanese Beetle idea. You have a lot more birds to feed than I do and they get more stuff from you outside of their food than mine so far. I'm still working on that.
    Pretty girl and hen!

    This pic is from a few months ago. He is a little bigger now and his feathers look better. He had just dried off from getting wet even though it dosent looked like it rained in the pic.

    In most breeds, birds that are about a year old do best. If your wanting to start with chicks I'd be buying them soon, or you could get started birds at the show

    Cute kitty! Your pic is a little fuzzy to me but it looks like the tip of his/her ear is missing? If it looks like its been cut off (not jagged like from a fight) it means kitty has been neutered. It's a common practice to manage feral cat populations that way you're not trying to do surgery repeatedly on the same animal. :-D

    Ok that explains the ear thing. I found another cat like that last year. There's always a lot of stray cats by my house. If they are friendly or not I give them food and water. I'm hoping she comes back today because I could feel her bones.
