Chicken escaped! CHICKEN RUN!

So I put Jimmy in with Sookie. Incase you don't remember, Sookie was the ill chicken that we had to quarantine for a while... when we tried to put her back with the flock, her 4 sisters attacked her. So she's been living by herself for a good couple months now. Lonely chicken. Well, I read in a book the other day, that you start with your lowest ranking chicken and slowly put them all together in an open new space. And do it at night. So I did. I started with Jimmy and took her out there a few nights ago and she and Sookie seem to be getting along fine. Well, last night, I got home late and checked on the two, out in the big open fenced in garden, and there was no sign of Jimmy. I looked for a half an hour... finally, I found her. She flew out somehow, over the 8 foot fencing and was sitting in the dark perched on the back deck railing. Anyhoo... here are the two of them. I gotta put another chicken in there tonight. I think I will grab Betty.

FINALLY! We got eggs!

So yeah! It's celebration time! Barb has laid an egg a day since Thursday the 17th. What a glorious day! That little tart made some yumminess for our breakfast.

Here are some pictures...
first two eggs (overcast sky blue, which will ALWAYS be Barb's egg color)... you can see the size compared to my feet. Little smaller than the average egg. Then what they look like in a carton... then what they looked like fried up... then scrambled with toast and garden tomatoes... and to top it off, Grandma Mary's home made concord grape juice from their harvest next door. YUM!

OK, so my friend Tracey, who lives in Toronto, Ontario, CANADA was at a Jay's game and took this picture with her phone. HAHAHA. Now if you guys know me... I have a funny license plate too (picture of my truck with my MMM MEAT plate. But I thought I would share this one... cause, ya know. It's chicken stuff. Still no eggs. But I found out it's because of the breed of chickens I got... they take a little longer... Patience....

Police find pipe bomb stuffed inside chicken

Device was large enough to harm a person if it went off, Conn. cops say


SIMSBURY, Conn. - Authorities in Connecticut are wondering who stuffed a raw roasting chicken with a pipe bomb and left it on a roadside.
