Talking about arrowheads and Indians in a previous post reminded me of something that happened back in the early 1980's.
One Halloween night there was a dance at the Holiday Inn. This was back when Poppy and I were dating! Everyone went in costume. There was a contest for the best costume and a $50.00 prize. Poppy and I actually did not enter the contest...we just enjoyed dancing and was on the dance floor most of the night. Around closing time the announcer came on and said, would the cowboy and his Indian maiden please come up...that would be Poppy and me...we won the prize... What a fun night that was!! :)
Being Henny Penny...I have somewhat to say about chickens!!
What a ragged bunch of chickens we have here! It is moulting season and the chickens, especially the older hens, look just awful! Moulting has affected their egg laying too. A month or so ago I was gathering 10 to 12 eggs a day. Now it's 2 to 4.
During moulting, the chickens lose their old feathers, usually in late summer or early fall, and then grow new ones. Our older hens, like Annie (far right in above picture), actually mope around like they feel bad. Feathers are everywhere!!!
"Big Boy" sporting only one tail feather...Probably a good thing he and his hens can't see themselves in a mirror! :0
Keeps me busy cleaning out waterers and feed bowls around here! Natural apple cider vinegar added to the chicken's water is supposed to give them a boost, make them feel better, and start laying again, so I'm taking the jug out with me this morning. It amazes me how much water chickens drink!!
This Walking Stick bug was crawling on the bedroom floor this morning. Have no idea how he got to the bedroom but is now outside again!!!
So, I have missed you all!! Thank you for visiting. I hope to have bunches to talk about and will be back soon.
