    Linda NO, bad, bad!! No adult beverages !! - ICE CREAM is all you need!!

    I just stocked up myself - Drumstick rocky road cones, Blue Bunny mini caramel swirl cones, Edy's German Chocolate 1.5 quart, and a pint of Oberweis chocolate. I have already tasted each of them to see if they are on the brink of rancidity( and need to be finished immediately.) I don't care if the expiration dates say 2014m - they are surely lying.

    I am under considerable stress because my Birthday is coming up and I will be just a short hop,skip,jump from the dreaded 70's - OMG!!! Of course I've had these attacks every time I go to the grocery store and stock up on ice cream that evaporates in a day or two . There goes all the grocery budget $$$$ and it isn't even hot today - we've had a couple of 70's after a flock of high humidity and flirting with 90's.

    You know I think if the chickens were eating ice cream they could survive the heat. Get them the cheap stuff, they won't notice the difference.

    Tomaru's are black (want me to post pictures of mine? [​IMG]), but it is a Longcrower.

    You know in the old days they drank beer/wine, etc. because the quality of the water was questionable. I think you should start NOW!

    Well the county animal control officer just left our house. At first I thought she was here to get Tucker but it turned out to be a complaint about crowing from a neighbor in the gated slum across the road.

    It was very stressful because she kept asking me if I sold anything related to the chickens. I thought she was getting to the issue of eating egg sales being regulated by the USDA and permits needed. I kept reassuring her that I have never sold eating eggs. Finally she told me she was trying to help me. That if I sell eggs as a part of my Ag program then the noise complaints have no standing. She said she lives around here and was everyone thrilled to see us move in and use the land as it was intended. She says small farms and ranches like ours is exactly what Nevada county wants.

    She also said that she says hello to Jack and Diane everyday and that our land, with it's variety of animals, is picture perfect. She said it is obvious we take excellent care of our animals.

    She asked for proof that I sell hatching eggs so I printed out some emails. She will tell the complainers that the roosters are part of a planned agricultural use on Ag zoned land and they will have to deal with the crowing. She also noted that we were zoned agricultural before that development even went in, so any residents there would have been, or should have been on notice that they may have to put up with animal sounds.
