Re: Farm Flock: follow along with *all* the birds in our flock

All went well with the hurricane. It mostly petered out by the time it hit us, and just dumped a bunch of rain on us. Robin and Fish are doing well, Fish is more reserved than Robin. Robin is ALWAYS getting into trouble. ALWAYS. Pestering us, pestering Fish, doing something he shouldn't be, whatever. LMAO Fish tolerates him well enough but mostly wants to do his own thing. He is friendly enough with us and the other birds but isn't an overly outgoing individual. More of an introvert

I am convinced Freedom understands WAY more English than most people would give her credit for. She is also a TOTAL weirdo. The other day she spouted some garbled something or other that sounded like "fried rat", so I asked her, "Did you just say something about a fried rat?!" And she belched loudly. Well then. She laughs at jokes before we do, she makes commentary on the things going on around her. I genuinely don't understand the phrase "bird brain"


The turkeys are well, growing bigger and bigger. Mr. Horse-with-no-name is great, Mr. Butts is still a jealous baby. Kitties and doggies are well. We are mostly getting ready for winter, and thinking about our options for getting out of this mobile home which is more and more showing us that is has an expiration date. My grandmother's estate is being dissolved this month, and depending on how much I inheirit(I know this is misspelled) we are thinking about buying a new mobile home, building a house(probably not time for this option right now considering the state of the mobile home), or buying a small second property nearby with a house already on it. There are a few listings in this county for under 50K, I'm sure we could find something acceptable that we can afford(depending on how much she left for me of course). If we went with that option, we would buy the house with 2 things in mind: starting a family soon, and eventually my mom maybe moving there for her senior years.


We are still mostly staying home, as one does in 2020. Have been playing a lot of video games in our spare time. Alex is just about through his current bag of Harrisons, and we will try to switch him to TOPS, and we will order adult lifetime for his next bag of harrisons. Does harrisons make a senior formula? He is just absurdly fat and as cute as it is, that can't be healthy for an over 18 year old cockatiel.



Hima is acting like her legs are starting to bother her, so we are starting to look at options for joint support and such. Once Covid allows, we will be getting her over to our vet for their opinions and such. My cousin is working for an emergency vet that has a bird vet, and she does not think metacam would be wise due to the issues of organ stress with long term use. She is in favor of trying CBD for Hima, but I have some reservations and want more info and our vet's opinion before trying anything other than ginger and hot peppers and such. So for now just firey budgie kisses.



Hima is such a delight. And proves naysayers wrong. She is a non handfed hen who has never bitten anyone ever. Total sassy sweetheart. <3 Such a special bird.


I can't really think of too much else that is going on right now, but I will really try to be on here more often. I miss you guys when I am not on here!

Re: Farm Flock: follow along with *all* the birds in our flock

These naughty equines! They have been breaking out of their pens more and more lately! We are currently rained in, but hoping to be able to get out tomorrow or Wednesday(more heavy rain coming Thursday) and get some fencing supplies to repair the paddock and keep the buggers home! Today they are out but staying home. Yesterday they got out and decided to take a walkabout in the forest. With the creek high right now they really can't get too far, but it was unsettling to not be able to find them at first(they weren't far though, just in an area we didn't look right away).



Hopefully all this rain doesn't soak into their feet and/or give them rain rot. Butters had an issue with rain rot a couple years ago, but we still have some of the sulferized horse shampoo for treating it. A new thing on the list of what we are looking for in a second property: 2-5 acres so we can put a small arena and a stable in. We want the equines not to be living here with us living elsewhere. Horses get stolen. Plus a stable would give us a nice solidly dry place to confine them during the soggy months of the year(of course they would be coming to the farm proper daily with us so would get plenty of excersize).


Once we have a house built and move back here leaving that house open for my Mom to live in, she could get a horse if she wanted, or we would be able to bring the equines to visit her there(she loves horses).

Re: Farm Flock: follow along with *all* the birds in our flock

Equines, break-outs and walkabouts! Yup, SOP (standard operating processors)!

The rain has either been to the North of us or the South. The Waterfalls in Upper Michigan have been in full Spring volume all Summer! We have had several friends traveling up there and they say it sensational!

Re: Farm Flock: follow along with *all* the birds in our flock

LMAO until we get to the feed shop we have effectively given up- We just let them out now! Lock them back up at sunset, but during the day we let them have their freedom. I mean, they will take their freedom anyway, and this way it means fewer fence mendings. Hopefully tomorrow we can get to the shop, but for now the bridge is still underwater.

Re: Farm Flock: follow along with *all* the birds in our flock

Oh my goodness! You guys have never seen a single photo of Robin or Little Fish! Well, here ya go! Robin is the Lutino, Fishy is the green.





I may make a second post with more baby photos! A very generous person has made it possible for me to post so many photos now! If they give me permission to do so, I will embarass them by name and thank them publicly.
