Stephcraig, I went through that this spring with my two hens. My first reaction was to break it up, but everyone's advise rang in my ears & I let them settle it. They settled it themselves with a few hard feelings, but now all is fine between them. The funny thing, I was in the house when they started fighting. I didn't hear them, they weren't making any noise. However, two of my aussies started whining, making that " something ain't right" noise. Funny how they realized the girls were fighting, or that "something" unusual was happening in the yard. The dogs are really tuned in.

Still no power at my house in Memphis. Got home from Ste. Genevieve last night. Sure is hot & stuffy. Hopefully today it will come on. Meanwhile, Daisy perched on my lawn chair arm just trilling most of the evening. Apparently she took a dust bath in her pen & had little pieces of bedding stuck all over her. I spent a few hours picking junk out of her feathers. Funny how she'll let me do that. She's so easy to deal with. Also dawned on me there aren't any feather combs. I may use some dog grooming tools! One of us needs to invent a comb for feathers. ;)

Rjohns, sounds like your Nari has it figured out! Better not leave the gator unattended. She may take off with it! Have a friend with a blue slate tom that insists on sitting up front in his golf cart. We think he just likes to go for a ride. He doesn't haul feed in it, just drives it around his property. If that bird sees him in it he runs after it till he stops & he hops in & off they go. Turkeys are so amusing!
