Well, I had two chickens when I got home ... my two oldest girls that have survived all the predator attacks to date met me at the truck.

They REFUSED to go to the coop last night, though, so I have no idea where they roosted last night, or if they survived the night.

cc .. I would love to incubate a mess of those eggs! I'm particularly interested in a few marans and ameraucana/ee eggs to add some color to my future layers eggs. But if you want to gather me up a mess of eggs - all varieties - , I'll come get them. I think my bater holds 25 or 30. Thank you.

I have a friend on the board of the local animal shelter. She is keeping her eyes open for anything that looks like an LGD .. or a puppy that looks like it'll be huge.. then I'll raise the pup with the chicks in the chicken yard.

You know, when I got the horses last year in Ark, Mr. Perryman tried to send me home with an LGD pup .. free. I just didn't have the bandwidth for another dog at that time. I'm ready now. We have the hot box out back and I can definitely fence an area for the dog and his flock. Predators out .. dog in.

Have I told y'all how much I love having all three of the horses at the house ?!?!?!

Glad you stayed on, Nu! I'm eagerly awaiting a pic of Lil all saddled up in her rainbow getup, lol.

Hope your 2 chickens survived the night, TG! Can't wait to see new puppy pics when that time comes. My dog (Catahoula) would likely eat a chicken if he saw it.

Hope the hubby is doing ok, EMS!

I didn't even think about mechanical hackamore. I have one, I have one like above, and a short shank one that is leather and fleece across the nose. I use the one like above on Cat. Tried the leather one, with the shorter shanks, but I need to lube up the leather more so it will wrap around her nose better, just been too lazy, since I can't ride her. I'll get it out and lube it up, soften up the leather, and put it on Lil. Sometime we can't think for ourselves, when the solution is looking you in the face! lol

TG, glad the chickens showed up. Hopefully, more will show up, when they calm down a bit. But, 2 is better than none!

Winding down from a 7-day stretch of night shifts and looking forward to a few weeks of vacay before the school year begins. Catching up here while waiting for our favorite trainer to come out and help with Eli this morning. I guess moving barns brought out the worst in him and it got to the point that I didn't know how to handle it. I want my sweet boy back!
TG hope more of your chickens show up! The new pup will be happy with his important job to do. I thought about chickens after I retire. Learning a lot from you guys.

KC I laughed ... I can only handle about two myself!

EMS You have had enough bad luck for about the next 10 years! Everything should be OK about now I hope.

Nu Lil is doing so well! Love hearing about her progress and your athletic skills haha

Goin back to chillin on the porch

CYN, what are you sewing?????????????????????????? My kitchen table is covered with all of the saloon girl costume fabric, sewing machines, etc. I'm aiming to finish it this week but got so frustrated with it last week that I had to walk away from it a bit.

TG, my newest (FEB hatch hens) are just starting to lay, which include the marans. Their eggs are still small. The other half of my flock is a year old this spring and are laying tons of fertile eggs. After the marans start laying a decent size, I will put together quite a grab bag for you from all of the hens! You can pick out what you want, and make an omelette out of the rest.
