The Pet Thread

Recommended Posts

Guy had fish in it before.  Put water conditioner in and under gravel filter was running for about a day before any fish went in.  The "goldfish" or whatever crap fish they give out at fairs never made it long enough to try the aquarium.  They were replaced with 3 tropical fish of some kind and 1 algae eater from Petsmart.  Algae eater #2 is the one that just went tits up this morning.

Sad times at the MS farm.  Our latest canine addition killed one of our chickens.  Likely not in a predatory fashion, but likely just being playful and dumb.  He's a lab mix and a pain in the ass.

Wife and I are starting the low carb thing so I actually had thought about doing a small chicken coop in the backyard for the supply of fresh eggs, but having 3 giant buffoons in the house is a big concern.

Wife talked to a few people in a Tractor Supply store this last weekend in a more rural part of this area.  One man she talked to gave away 12 chickens a few days before... silkies... one kind she wants.  And who WOULDN'T want this?

It may taste cuter.  What if it tasted like every day chicken, but had the texture of cotton candy (sans stickiness)?

I think those are also called bantam chickens? my grand parents used to have those but mostly just used for eggs - don't recall eating them to be honest..

There are lots of different types of bantams, but silkie's aren't the greatest egg layers.

I adopted 2 kittens today.  They are so busy exploring, I can't get a picture of them at the moment.

They are brothers and the foster society preferred they be adopted together.  I wanted 2 anyway, so it worked perfectly.  I think I'm naming them Felix (more black) and Fritz (less black).
