    Ralphie Ralphie Ralphie, you know full well that Ameraucanas have a tail. It is Araucanas which do not.

    I almost feel guilty right now, as my wife is out plowing and I am in the house on the confuser. In my defence, I did help her put the plow on and I have shoveled the sidewalks and porches twice.
    I am hoping this snow stays to cover my nursery beds in case it does get cold. The freeze and thaw process is difficult on the plants.
    I could go out and supervise the plowing but that might lead to social conflict?

    Knowing what I know now, I would not have them either.


    But do not let the rest of you become discouraged and not buy my birds from me!

    I tell you what the whole Ameraucana, EE, Araucana racket really is something. When I first picked up my EE's at Fleet Farm they had them labelled as Araucanas. LOL. As a Newb back then I had already done enough research to know that that is what I wasn't getting. But I did question myself about it at the store and I can see why people get confused over it all. Lots of False advertising out there. Hahaha.

    EJB I can see that you are spoiled too, by a good woman. You and Ralphie...I tell you what. You better be starting dinner for those nice ladies tonight or something. Get her a hot cocoa and a kiss when she comes in the very least.

    I am jealous of your plow worthy snow. We had about 5 flakes then nothing more. My plow and my snowmobile look so sad sitting on the gravel driveway with green grass all around

    And kudos to your wife for getting out there in the plow! My DW has no problem staying in bed/inside while I handle the fun jobs like plowing and scooping out coops :)

    Mind you i am not complaining as she is good about keeping up after laundry, dishes, and cleaning. It is a good deal for me! I still try to help out though with that stuff. I usually get folding duty :S
