    Joe, it's just as well that your chickens don't have nipples. I hear that folks have lots of problems with frozen nipples this time of year. If not checked on a regular basis, it can lead to dehydration. The only thing worse than a frozen nipple, is freeze dried chicken. Take it from someone who knows all about that kind of thing. LG in the frozen far north, where all the men are good looking, all the women are strong, and all the children are above average.

    I love Garrison Keillor!
    Although I've never been to lake Woebegone, and I'd never want to have a frozen nipple.

    That is not a turkey lamp!!


    That is a very intelligent turkey hiding on Thanksgiving morning!



    BTW the saying up here is , it's colder than a chicken's nipple"... or something like that..


    I do know Ole and Lena but they are not very nice people........ Up here we try to avoid them every since the incidence.

    Did you hear about Ollie, Lena, and Sven out on the snow mobile?

    Oh, and have you ever been to Paul Bunyan land?

    Well I was raised in Kansas...you know what they say about KS don't you? There's only 3 things to come out of Kansas...sunflowers, sunshine and sonsofb's (at least that's what Clint Eastwood claimed).

    You know you're going to have to tell us about the "incidence". Inquiring minds want to know!
