    we have two lovely old pear trees. for the first time in 4 years, the late bearing tree had GREAT pears, no bugs and huge fruit!

    well, the tree wasn't properly trimmed, so it's very tall. we cannot get all of the pears and now they are falling.

    let me paint the picture:

    tall pear tree with ripe fruit

    chicken tractor in same field

    104 meaties roaming and dust bathing under said pear tree


    one pear 'bomb' literally plopped a little meatie right on the noggin. KO'd for a few minutes. it was scary and hilarious at the same time. we thought he was a goner. nope, woke up a few minutes later, shook it off and of course, went looking for food...[​IMG]

    Meat birds are about as bright as a rock voting for Obama.

    like PC mentioned, they are dumb as take your pick:
    rocks
    cement
    grass
    jell-o
    bricks
    mud

    i just finished a lovely pear that did NOT hit me in the cranium case.

    I resent and am offended by that uncalled for reference to Jell-O. [​IMG]

    So instead of "stoning" would being killed by a pear be called "Pearing"
    I can just see a knew way to kill your meat chickens, the proper way for "Pearing"
    The plus side is, you have meat and the dessert all ready to go [​IMG]

    okay, i retract the jell-o reference and substitute tree bark.

    or we could just say that meaties aren't the smartest pancakes in the stack!

    yeah, pearing is the new pithing. either, if done correctly SHOULD (operative word in sentence is SHOULD) render 'victim' dumb as JELL-O!
