I have a really good friend named Lana .. I've considered it, more than once, but I think it could be tricky when I start posting on facebook about Lamar and Lana breeding! Bwa ha ha!

Dba .. the critters eat better than we do!

Lamar is going to get his own digs tonight.. she's a little younger than him and he's TRYING to breed her .. I think it just leads to frustration .. he bit DD16 yesterday .. LOL.

I've only had the doe 2 days.

Lucy, Lulu, Layla? They're both adorable.

Question, TG. Have you ever used/thought of using slow fed haynets? I know you said you had a problem with going to inhaling the hay. I find that with Henny's new hay bag, the same amount of hay lasts him hours longer. I feed less and he eats over a longer period of time!

Kay ... funny .. our dog's name is Lucy .. my daughters nickname is LuLu ... Layla is at the top of my list right now .. great minds, huh?

I've saturated Gunner with hay, and he's eating it alot slower now.. I just kept his haynet as full as I could stuff it until he figured out that it's always there...

Of course, he's by himself, so there is no competition... I looks good though! I think, anyway..

Bahaha they're all very cute names!

I got this hay bag for Henny:

Slow Feed Nylon Hay Bags by Derby Originals

That thing can easily hold 20 pounds of hay. I was using the mesh haynets before, but I wanted something safer that would also slow him down more. This haybag is amazing! Even my vet uses them and the horses there really abuse them. Glad to hear his eye is doing so well :)

Gosh do I know how you feel, TG! We're doing acupuncture to help relieve the tension in Henny's neck. It's slow, but I saw results from just one session and he's going in for another tomorrow. :) I hope your boy recovers well without any(more) complications!

ETA: I love all the white hairs on his face. He looks like an old man hehe

Cute chicks, TG!

Hopefully going to get started on fencing in the chicken coop soon so the birds can get out and free roam. Even tho we use 5 foot tall rolled wire, the lighter breeds can go over it and my garden is right next door. Going to try clipping wings on everyone to see if that keeps them contained - don't know any other way to keep them out of the garden and in their area. They will have lots of roam room - they will have the immediate area around their house and the entire horse pasture behind them (also fenced with 5 foot tall rolled wire). They have and will shred every single plant down to a bare stem in less than 10 minutes if they get in my garden - even potted plants and the hibiscus on the patio. Rotten birds.

Clippityclop is finally getting to spend some time in the saddle!

OH yeah they will ... try clipping or plucking just one wing ... I have the same problem in my pen, but the birds are free roaming .. it'll be interesting when we plant this year as they have had free access to everything for MONTHS >...

I think I need to cover my pen and lock'em up during the day .. lol

I had actually thought about putting in a net ceiling and giving them a small roaming area - you and me would be in the same boat. All of the leaves from the trees in the fall would cover it and make a really dark cave. Then we'd end up with albino mutant carnivorous chickens that would no longer be happy with pellets and bugs - we'd have to offer up small children and pets to keep them at bay. The crowing in the morning would be more of a growl or gurgly snarl...getting eggs wouldn't even be something we could attempt. We'd be so busy just trying to contain them and our 3rd grade level chicken math skills wouldn't be enough to keep up with their prolific mutant ways.........then we would be BEGGING for chupacabras to show up....

Sheesh - too many late Alfred Hitchcock movies over here...
