Spot light on our new pet

In celebration of the break in the heat wave that hit the east coast the last few days, I  decided to take a break from writing about the chickens and focus on a pet I mentioned very briefly a few posts ago, our bunny, Vivian.

We got her a last week because my sisters wanted one and mom had no objections. She’s a dwarf bunny and she going to say about this size, growing up to three pounds.

D'awwww so cute

She is also the most adorablist thing I have ever seen.

Vivian been by herself mostly but we want to try to get her to interact with the chickens and hopefully the dogs.    Today we let her interact with the flock, and she reacted the same way if you saw a giant bird twice your size.

What's not shown is that Vivian running away from the chicken

so i guess that makes her a chicken Bunny!

Some like it HOT, most don’t

So the east coast was greeted by a heat wave these past two days.

You know the expression, “hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk”? I was planning today to see if that works, until my mom caught wind of it.

here where the picture would be...

My mother has always been against the idea of wasting an egg just for an experiment or a gag because, “ if you knew the about of energy that these chickens put into making an egg every day and a half, you would have respect for the egg too.”

So thinking of that, I searched out on the web for some alternative, more respectful, uses of eggs. And wow, there are a lot of them so I compiled a list of them, just for you guys!

Egg Glue:
Apparently the egg whites works as a great adhesive, people out there on the web say it’s great of paper and cardboard. Although I’m still sticking (get it?) to the store bought stuff.

chickens are the new horses.

If you have plants, water them with the leftover water from your boiled eggs.

When you boil an egg, the left over water hold many vitamins and nutritional substances that you can feed to your plants.

Eggplant anyone?

But the oddest one I found was one to make your coffee better, if you mix some crushed egg shells into the coffee before brewing it, it makes the drink more smoother.

I don’t drink coffee, so you, the readers, will have you go out and test this one for me. See if you notice more smoothness in your next cup, or if you just catches salmonella from it.

Nope, nope nope. This one just seems wrong.

I haven’t done a post that is based mostly on funny chicken photos, so today i’ll grace everyone with a post to get you out of your Humpday work-day blues.


This is one of my favorite lolcat picuter (even before we got chickens) ….now only if we could get our dogs to play as well with our flock as much as this cat.

A newspaper comic that i found a few days ago, especially funny since my mother is an advid marathon runner.

And i leave you with a Youtube video its just some zanny fun.

But if you enjoy classical music and comdey there is always the muppets.

They grow up so fast.

After Harry Potter and one hell of a weekend at the movie theater, I’m back to normal. Sunday night after a long night at the theater, attending to the needs of the many, many Harry Potter fans, I got home and peered into the chick’s nursery, to my surprise our lil’ chicks are now HUGE! Sometime between Wednesday and Sunday night these guys got big, really big

Don’t take my word for it, the proof is in the (chicken) pudding.

Last Wed:

See how small these babies are

Wow! They grown.

I swear these guys grow more than human babies, the only difference is that we don’t need to cloth them, although it wont stop my mom from wanting to cloth them.

Good bye Harry

Last night I waited 3 hours to watch a 2hours and 23 minute movie. I spent more than five hours in a movie theater waiting for one of the most anticipated movie of their childhood, Harry Potter.

Don’t cry because it ended. Smile because it happened.

FAQ of a family that owns chickens

Every time I tell people that my family raises chickens I get asked these certain questions, so this post is dedicated to answering those questions. So next time someone asks, I’ll just reply “Just read it on my blog”.

*Do you eat your chickens
No, we raised them as pets, and it would probably be traumatize us if we were served a plate full of Zelda

Zelda's just too lovable NOT to eat.

*Do roosters REALLY crow at  day  break?

Yes they do, and any other time of the day that they deem fit. They also crow when neighors are irrtaed by rooster crows.

 

*Who’s your favorite chicken?

The prized chicken in our flock.

*who’s your favorite chick?

I love that one, no.... That one!....NO No i love THAT one more....no wait.....

 

*Have you seen that episode of Dirty Jobs where he goes to a chicken farm as a Chick sexer?
No, it seems that fate / T.V listings will not allow us to watch that one episode where he goes on a chicken farm.

My mom is crazy

 

*How crazy?

Too crazy to type it all down.
