Re: I Am Gonna Catch My Neighbor's Chicken
AMAZING

This is worth the entire GLP memebership alone, to even listen to people like you Crunch.

This blows my mind, the eggs are the moneyball, Goat, you gettin this?

20 eggs in the wheelbarrow

That is some serious serious cheddah.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69669186


Keep in mind the timeframe over which said eggs were laid. A young hen will lay nearly one egg every 24 hours. Assuming it was the same hen laying in the wheelbarrow, it would have taken nearly 3 weeks to amass such a quantity and likely longer.

Those eggs all got the float test and some were questionable. A few were definitely no-go. The moral of the story is to find your hens' egg stash sooner rather than later.

Chicken eggs have a protective membrane on them, so washing them is only necessary if they are very dirty. They can sit on the counter for 3 weeks in moderate or cool temps without going bad. In the refrigerator, they are good for 2 months or more.
 Quoting: Crunch62


THIS^^^^truth!
Egss at the grocery store are at least 2 weeks old when you buy them

I always do the float test even if I gathered all the eggs that day..sometimes there are hairline fractures in the eggs you cannot even see...

My neighbor is one of the best types, he has so many chickens they wander into my yard!

I am not one of those crazy dog owners with yappng barking dogs in my yard, chickens are safe.

But I am gonna close my gate and keep a couple!

Okay sweet thanks.

What I did was, I took an old cat-litter-box-sheild which is a full sheild and I have a extra basket that fit nicely under there, and I put the shelter/basket which has just a tiny little door just about cat/chicken size, and I wonder if since I put it right next to the maters, she might go into it?

I will update the thread, but, the twop stray cats I already saw one eyeing her, he was all pumalike running to her just now and I said, scat and he ran, I then filled the dishes for the cvats so maybe with full bellies they will leave her alone??

I need to get it up high because what's the problem here is that cats can go everywhere chickens can go! May have to out some cats to put the egg flow into effect!

I am joking I would never kill cats, just maybe I can trap them and I don't know, drive them to catland.

Damn cats do NOT lay eggs!

Re: I Am Gonna Catch My Neighbor's Chicken
Yeah, hens like to be on high places. In my coop, there are 2 roosts. One is about 1/2" higher than the other, and they all try to crowd onto it.

If I leave my shed door open, they will go in there and fly up onto the workbench. They like to kick tools off onto the floor. Sometimes they lay eggs up there though, so I can abide it.

Reading this again, then

the higher the better, and I guess if they can fly up, then it could be high enough to keep cat out.

I certainly don't mind it. I moved here 30 years ago with the intent to eventually move 'closer to town' with a nice house, etc. Now, they would have to drag me kicking and screaming from this place.

Sometimes, I head out the door to go to work in the early morning and surprise my neighbor's peacocks and peahens in my yard. They start calling and take off toward home. Have you ever seen a flock of peacocks flying? Pretty amazing. I'd imagine a lot of people have never seen that.

As for the cats, I really don't know. There is a sort of feral cat that has been hanging around here for years. A few times, I have seen him stalking my chickens. The hens don't really put up with it, though. When they notice the cat, they charge him and he runs off. He may have developed a respect for their beaks and claws, as have my little dogs.

I have told my wife those hens would eat us if they had half a chance.

One neighbor's (larger) dogs have got under the fence and torn the hens up a couple of times. I told him if it happened again I would not think twice about putting them down. Not something I relish, but completely legal if they are attacking livestock. Chickens are livestock.

LEgalistically tho

two things

2: the bird be eating my vegetables, which I suppose follows as 'grazing' tho I will have to check under "G" in both my giant Masonic bible and my Black's Law Dictionary.

We watch at least a couple episodes of "The Rifleman" every night, it's my favorite TV show, well, that and the A Team.

That show is great for so many reasons, Pekinpah as I recall, is the little boy, he wrote the show originally and the scripts are EPIC.

And at the end of it, some dirtbags lie dead, amirite?

Goodtimes! However, the show is also a caution against posses and lynchmobs, many episodes deal with what dumbfucks the townsfolk can be.

Re: I Am Gonna Catch My Neighbor's Chicken
Yep I was right, Pekinpah

[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

The series was created by Arnold Laven and developed by Sam Peckinpah, who would become a director of Westerns. Peckinpah, who wrote and directed many episodes, based many characters and plots on his childhood on a ranch. His insistence on violent realism and complex characterizations, as well as his refusal to sugarcoat the lessons he felt the Rifleman's son needed to learn about life, put him at odds with the show's producers at Four Star. Peckinpah left the show and created a short-lived series, The Westerner, with Brian Keith.[citation needed]

Hmm, I caught a little froggie and keep him now, he's happy I guess but I will probably release him soon, he croaks every day at least twise a day, six or seven croaks,

I put water in there and he gets to go in and out and roam, catch bugs whatnot, he comes back!

Hmm, to update my chicken situation,

Well I am suffering a full on chicken invasion, my plants are being trampled!

So I look at a bag of frikkin "chicken feed" at walmart, f'n 8 bucks --Well, how many eggs can I buy with that?

I either have to negotiate for a chicekn, with my neighbor, or not bother spending any money to lure these birds,

Keeping my gate shut isn't always an option because like today for example, I left my gate shut all monring, and if one does that all day, t's like none of your neighbors have access to you, and typically it's understood we are allowed to have access, go knock on someone's door, etc.

So i open my gate and chickenposse comes in, tramples my garden, eats romas, strawberries (yes bugs too) and they bail!

My lady said to keep checking for eggs, I need to mix it up too, having not just one but several 'nest' spots in my yard, kinda like a bathroom waiting to catch the birds golden crap, THE MONEYBALL, THE EGG

On the egg front, I am out of eggs! Been running my griddle a lot, over easy for me, over hard for her, toast, butter, hashed browns made from scratch,

EGGS ARE THE MONEYBALL! I am about to drive to town for eggs, so maybe I should have bought some feed, Because one doesn't factor EGGGAS into the equation which is where you drive to get egggs, but won't always admits that's why you drove, no, you may say you drove for milk or whatever, but it was the eggs thatcalled you.

So I need to really think this chicken thing out more, but am grateful for my good neighbor's surplus, and aim to do right by him.

If you have a laywer that lays eggs regularly that's cool, but usually they only lay once in a lifetime, that's a lot of upkeep.
