The Big, Long Post

I must apologize for my lack of posting in the past week or so. The home improvement stores have begun to mark down their merchandise for the season, and the rains have come. The combination has made for a very busy life and a much improved home. Good thing since my whole family is coming for my youngest 4 th birthday in a few weeks.

On another note, the rains have also lead me to ask a very important question......

" just how stupid can a chicken be"

The answer is really, really, really stupid. Now that the rains have come the yet to be butchered black broilers are a bit confused. ( 11 down and 12 to go) All that water falling from the sky is just to much decision making for them. What do they do about it. The answer is nothing, they go about their day getting soaking wet. All of this ended with me, once again, standing in the yard in the rain and dark trying to round them up and put them to bed for the night. Let's all hope they don't end up getting colds and dying from it.

Don't feel bad. I'm finding out that rabbits are incredibly stupid too. We moved their water from the front of the cages to the back, and now they can't find it. Seriously.

Now we know why the human race selected certain animals for food !
