    They really are amazing.. but not a critter for everyone. As for them being predator control.. nope.. at night they are extremely vulnerable.. Paco was attacked one night by a couple of dogs.. luckily he had enough sense to run up to the house where I heard the commotion and went out to see what was going on.. when I found him one of the dogs was hanging onto his neck.. I honestly expected him to be dead by morning.. but all his wounds healed up..leaving just scars behind

    these pics were taken a few weeks after the attack:
    back of his neck.. this was the widest wound.. a large chunk of flesh was missing so it took the longest to heal

    his thigh.. deep punctures here with skin ripped off.. it healed and dried up faster than the first wound I have pictured..

    scarring down his neck.. this had been open skin.. luckily they missed his jugular

    nope.. their wings hang down and are useless.. (lol..luckily for me)!

    The Austin postal hub is horrible with any package marked "fragile"

    this was one that I got a while back.. and it's pretty normal for them

    it's just insane ... the Dallas postal hub is fine.. but the Austin one has a hatred of any box marked fragile.. reports have been filed.. complaints have been made.. it hasn't done a darn bit of good.

    I got some eggs shipped to me 2 weeks ago. The package said fragile on every side and perishable on the top. Two sides were smashed in and the postal lady left the box laying out in the sun. She didn't even knock. I candled the eggs and none of them are doing anything. :( They were lavender orphington eggs. I think she did it on purpose because she hates our dog. He barks at her.
