Are you still here AW?

I think they are free ranged, "RClip". AW mentioned a story one night about letting them out to go down to the creek and how they loved the greenery down there to cool off under. It was such a nice story that it stuck in my head.

Really? I'm not coherent. Please do post the things I have typed here that are incoherent, so that I might explain it to you. I mean, you must be a professor or something, with degrees. After all, you can spell "bwaahahahaa" just fine.

Scruff, do you get enough eggs to off set the cost of feed? The cost of feed is up, but so is the cost of eggs. There might be a decrease of birds around my place. I think I'm going to have to start robbing bird nests.

Gestation period of a typical chicken egg is about 21 days once the hen begins sitting on the clutch. If AW has 11 fertilized given the current heat and humidity he should get 6 or 7 roosters in the brood. Unlike most mammals, hens determine the sex of the chick.
Of course you realize birds are not mammals. No fur, no hair, no live young and no mammary glands.

Well... Good evening everybody! Interesting 'catch up' here for the past 1/2 hour or so.
Thanks for sticking up for me a while ago, guys. I don't know what was said about or directed at me, but also a huge thanks to the Mod who took it off. It must have been pretty filthy.
Another Topix oddity that reared it's ugly head was someone on here just a little bit ago claiming to be a Mod? Seriously? I hardly made it through that one from the tears in my eyes, I was laughing that hard. Actually brazen enough to be threatening someone with an email notice of TOS violations and a threat of being banned? REALLY?
THEN SUDDENLY, THE FAKE WANNABE MOD GETS IT'S OWN COMMENT ZAPPED?????
(I'm still chuckling at that one. This is better in here today than the Blue Collar Comedy Tour)...
<<snort>>
I was just going back to comment toward it and ZAPPPPPPPP! It was missing in action. Regrettably, I wasn't able to get back to that one in time to copy the user name and location for future reference. LOL! Will they never learn? Yep, it's a full moon out there tonight, folks...
Anyway, speaking of that very subject, I was wondering if anyone had taken a peek outside at that moon yet? It's absolutely gorgeous tonight! If you've not yet done so, take a minute to step outside. You'll be glad you did...
it doesn't take long to catch up anymore as there are many posts being deleted now. Notice the huge gaps in missing post numbers sometimes 5-10 in a row.

Biological Hazard in Canada on Tuesday, 31 July, 2012
Hundreds of dead fish found floating in a canal near Twin Lakes Beach in June likely died from suffocation. Provincial experts say the carp - white suckers and freshwater drum - suffered from low oxygen levels in the water. They were also spawning at the time, further depleting oxygen in the channel, which runs several kilometres between Lake St. Francis and Lake Manitoba. Testing found no water quality problems. The phenomenon is being called a natural event.

How many earthquakes happen each day?

Answer:
Approximately 275 that are large enough to be felt by humans. For more information, see below:

According to the US Geological Survey there are approximately 1,000,000 earthquakes around the world every year (although the vast majority of these are so small they can only be detected by sensitive scientific equipment).

Of these 1,000,000, approximately 1/10 are large enough to be felt by humans. This means that on any given day there will be an average of 2750 earthquakes around the world of which 275 are large enough to be felt by humans.

Perhaps even more surprisingly, on average there are around 100 earthquakes a year that are large enough to cause damage (however they often don't because they occur away from inhabited areas). This means there is a little under a 1 in 3 chance of there being a "large" earthquake somewhere in the world on any given day of the year.

USGS estimates several million a year. Most are so remote or so minor that they are never detected.

I have thought about keeping a few chickens mostly for the nostalgia of it but they are not a small commitment. My largest negative to having them is the nasty stray dogs that venture thru my place.

@Nope.. I thought the full moon might give the baby chick hatch some incentive, but still no results as yet. Hatch is 2 days overdue, so I am questioning the fertility.

If nothing by the weekend, I will just have to be satisfied with the purchased chicks. They are doing quite well. I had one baby chick get out of the wire cage and run a distance of about 30 yards and was standing at my back door. So it has already learned where the feed comes from. LOL
