That is for sure. When an old sow has pigs, you have to separate them for the first few days except for feeding time otherwise the Sow might eat their own. I have seen hogs almost demolish a coal pile.

I don't think so UNA. They have identified that piece as to everything that it really is, just a dead mouse that fell into the batter. LOL
or a publicity stunt to keep from paying. I onced worked in restaurants and it is amazing how many people eat 3/4 of their meal before they find something wrong in hopes that they can get away without paying. They ought to know on the first bite. LOL
Oh, a dead mouse is the worst thing that could be. That reminds me of an episode of Preppers. The father in the family was a real fanatic. He had his teenage sons eat an earthworm, a dead mouse, and maggots (he had what he called the maggot hotel, where he grew them). I don't mind eating deer or wild rabbits, but there is where I draw the line. If I had to eat the gross stuff, I'd rather go on to the other side.

Una, I bet they don't even know about chicken "glasses". They are a small set of solid plastic "glasses" that fit over a chicken's beak so they cannot look straight ahead and pluck the sores on another chickens hiney. Without those glasses, a chicken with a sore hiney will get plucked to death. Those are not usually used except in mass production, not regular farm use.
I never knew that. When I had chickens, I used to separate any that had a small sore on it because of that problem. Where on earth can you find chicken glasses. By the way, how did we get talking about these subjects anyway?

Hogs will eat any and everything. When I was a kid, a man would come to my grade school and collect garbage for his hogs. Back in those days we called it swill.

I don't know about this day and age. I am speaking from 50 years ago when the owner of the mass production ordered them from somewhere. I just worked there. Small flocks would just be separated like you stated.

Horrible about those deaths.
I have a suspect in mind. lol Those silly icons are irrelevant.

I know we all hate it more when it involves children. Wonder what they will find when it cools off enough to go in for recovery. Probably something stupid like an electric heater or candle. So sad.

Very interesting:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_eyeglass...

~~ A form of chicken eyeglasses was first patented in 1903 by Andrew Jackson, Jr. of Munich, Tennessee, as an "Eye-protector for chickens". Sometimes the devices merely took the form of blinders, but other versions were actually semi- or fully translucent glasses, often rose-colored. The idea behind the glasses is to keep chickens from attacking and cannibalizing one another. Red-tinted lenses, as opposed to other colors, are said to be effective in stopping the internecine pecking because they make the sight of blood not easily recognized. As summed up in a 1953 article in Indiana's National Road Traveler newspaper, "The deep rose-colored plastic lenses make it impossible for the cannibal [chicken] to see blood on the other chickens, although permitting it to see the grain on the ground." ~~

My uncle had a chicken farm in Jamestown Tn. Never knew of him to use these, but his chicken houses pretty big. He wasn't rich and couldn't afford workers, so maybe that's why he never used these glasses? He actually contracted with KFC for the sale of his chickens though.

I'm learning a whole lot of things today about chickens, hehe..

Unless I'm mistaken, the news said they just recovered the bodies. This is horrid. The Mom is in critical condition. Don't know if I'd want to live after something like that and loosing my whole family...

lala, I have been watching the previews on TV for this movie. I want to see it. I love Matt Damon in anything he is in. I ran across this article about the movie and watched the clip on it and a documentary coming out later this month about fracking. Thought you might be interested in reading it since it is about fracking. In the movie trailor Matt says:

"two hours out of any town looks like Kentucky"

..beautiful countryside like we are blessed with, but filmed in Pa.

Environment
Fact Check: Truths and Myths in Matt Damon’s Anti-Fracking Film ‘Promised Land’
Posted on January 9, 2013 at 2:43pm by Liz Klimas

...
American Public Media’s Marketplace also has a fact check of the movie. Here are a couple of the things that it looked into and found:

Fracking and dead cows, really? Yes, it is true. Cows have died according to a Cornell study tallying reports of human and animal ailments near drill sites. Direct exposure to hydraulic fracturing fluid occurred in two cases: in one, a worker shut down a chemical blender during the fracturing process, allowing the release of fracturing fluids into an adjacent cow pasture, killing 17 cows in one hour; the other was a result of a defective valve on a fracturing fluid tank, which caused hundreds of barrels of hydraulic fracturing fluid to leak into a pasture where goats were exposed and suffered from reproductive problems over the following two years.
Do natural gas landmen push this hard? Not that I’ve heard. I spoke to several landmen in the gas industry, who say they’re paid daily rates rather than commission. In other words, they get paid whether the landowner signs a lease or not.

To read the article and view the trailors:

crazy about the cows...interesting article and videos.

Where's Hempburn at? That new puppy must be keeping him busy. lol Anyway, this is for him:

Asteroid Apophis is expected to buzz right past Earth Wednesday night

An asteroid named Apophis will be making a relatively close encounter on Wednesday night, when it's expected to pass within 9 million miles of Earth. That may not sound terribly nearby, but NASA scientists are keeping a watchful eye on the 886-foot-wide astronomical object as it makes its closest approach of the year. Their interest stems in part from a 2004 prediction, later deemed extremely remote, that Apophis was on track to slam into Earth in 2036. NASA remains intrigued and is considering Apophis "as a potential target for both robotic and crewed spacecraft missions." Actually, we're kind of intrigued now, too.[Source]

I've had trouble eating chicken for many years now. Actually, ever since I've owned them for pets and egg consumption. They're MUCH more intelligent that people give them credit of being.

Although I'll still eat fried chicken, it's difficult for me when my teeth hit a bone. Gives me the willies inside, much like fingernails on a chalkboard.... Ewwww. I usually just pull it off the bone with my silverware if I'm in public, or use my fingers when I'm at home getting down and dirty with dinner, hehe.

I have to admit that my light bulb is dimmer than it used to be. Did you know that as we get older, our brains shrink? The antidote is lots of reading, paying attention to what goes on in the world, communicating with others, doing crossword puzzles, and anything and everything that exercises your brain. I've seen some pretty shriveled brains on CT scans during my working days.
