My Chickens Are Smarter Than Animal Rights Activists

chicks

It’s county fair season here the wild parts of America, which means farm animals, tractor pulls, goat races, games, fair food, rides, and good old American small town entertainment. My wife and daughter are active in 4H, and they’re helping staff the poultry tent this week, as they do every year. My daughter wouldn’t miss [Read More...]

Verily, My Chickens Are in the Pan Used For Making Bread …

Dolly gets her beak rubbed. She finds it soothing.

…and they are indeed using their beaks to peck out the remaining dough in said pan. And no, granny’s dog does not bite. Since I’m still sick, blogging will remain a bit light. Here’s the last post I did with chicken updates. As you can see below, they’re growing into mighty protein factories. [Read more...]

Chicken Progress Report [Photo Post]

13March12 005

The new batch is growing quite nicely. They’re changing from little balls of fuzz into perching, flying (yes, chickens can fly), feathered fowl. Also, Ruby the Wonder Chicken is doing poorly. She’s been in the house with an impacted crop. We let her out of the cage now and then, and the chicks are fascinated. [Read More...]

Habemus Pullum!: New Chickens Have Come Home to Roost

Loretta

This isn’t a full return to the Monday Morning Chicken days of yore, but it is Monday, and it’s sorta morningish, so make of it what you will. The fact is: habemus pullum! (Yeah, I’m sure I declined that one wrong. Look, I was a straight-C student in Latin. Gimme a break.)[NOTE: Maggie D. says [Read More...]

Benedict, Dante, and Chickens

NewChicks6

You cannot leave one place without entering another. Yesterday was a day of beginnings and endings. As I watched papa Bene recede from the balcony of Castelgandolfo, I realized it was possible I’d never see him again in this world. There’s sadness in that, but as some of my fellow Catholic bloggers and I kicked around our [Read More...]

Yes! VICTORY!!!

12FirstEggsTom

In your face agricultural-industrial complex! It took five months, about $600, and daily work, but two of our birds just laid their first eggs. These are the small eggs they lay when they start, but they’ll get bigger as the birds get older. Diamond and Ruby are the stars of the day: Amber is still [Read More...]

Monday Morning Chicken: Protest Edition

DiamondChick

This is Diamond, enjoying an extra side of “hate” with today’s Monday Morning Chicken. (Because we’re all about the “hate“.) Memo to the gay “marriage” militants: you’ve officially jumped the shark. When you attempt to transform a perfectly mild statement of support for traditional marriage–an opinion held by every rational human on the planet for [Read More...]

Amber the Quisling Chikin Says…

EatMoreChikina

Every day is chicken day around here, but today people are making an effort to eat at Chick-fil-A in order to offset the boycott directed at the chain because its owner opposes gay marriage. As I pointed out here, I don’t really object to people exercising their right not to spend money somewhere for some [Read More...]
