BEEBE, Ark. – Wildlife officials are trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 blackbirds to die and fall from the sky over an Arkansas town.

Of course they are persistant. They flew thousands of miles to get here for the simple act of reproducing! And their time to build a nest and raise possibly two broods is limited. They are great to have around because they eat tons of insects. Not to mention they are entertaining. Flies of all types make up the majority of the Barn SwallowÂ’s diet, along with beetles, bees, wasps, ants, butterflies, moths, and other flying insects. Nest building is time-consuming and hard work. Imagine trying to build your home using only your mouth, your feet and your belly!

I know nothing about pet birds other than I am against keeping birds in a cage. They are meant to be free.

I have tried the rake thing to do clean-up. I find a shovel works better.

These birds will live to be 70-100 years old. None of your wild birds will even come cloe to that.. Have a good day, I am off to find arrow heads and hunt coyotes!

Today is a dismal day in the ozarks. It was sleeting a little & it,s cloudy damp & cold. Im going to the sheep & goat acution at Koskonogg Missouri tomorrow. Im gonna sell a uneeded billy goat & maybe buy a feeder pig. Its supposed to get down into the twenties tonite & ill have to leave early in the morning. Anyway the wind chill in the stock trailer would be pretty bad. So I built a tight plywood box inside the trailer so as to keep ole billy from gettin too chilly. my wife said I could of just et him ride in the truck cab with me. If I did that we would both freeze. becuause as bad as billy stinks I would have to drive with all of the windows open.

Maybe he'd enjoy a bath as much as my dogs like their baths. You both might be happier for it. Then he could lay on your lap all the way there keeping you warm, like my dogs do when we go for a ride up north.

I heard a story about a guy that had a stinky billy in a stock rack on his PK. he went to the car wash and gave him a bath with the high pressure wand. I dont know if he waxed hin or not. Actually billy goats stink so bad because they urinate on their front legs and wiskers. The also can perform the same feat as the youn man from nantucket! I buy a billy to service our milk nanny,s then as soon as thats done I sell him. they are usually mean stinky and nasty.

I'm sure you could train him to urinate properly. My BF showed our male black lab what to do years ago when he was a puppy.

Its quite obvious you know nothing about billy goats! The stinkiest meanest rankest nastiest goat gathers the largerst herd of nanny goat girlfriends. Like the bright plumage & feathers on a male bird a billys stench & aggression is a desireable attractant to the female goats. A billy goat is by far the horneyiest male animal in existance.

We raise tame rabbitts for the meat. they seem happy in their hutches. However one doe excaped and has babies. Their living under a junk Pk. And they seem to really be enjoying their freedom. running and playing having a big time. They wont live long because they dont have resistance to the parasites & diseases like the cottontail & swamp rabbitts are. You catch a cottontail and cage it up and it quickly dies. You can catch a very young swamp rabbitt and it will live in captivity and even breed with tame rabbitts.
