Hens and Roosters a Wonderful Variety in my Backyard – A #379

Hens and Roosters

 

My dream flock would consist of one of probably every breed. I like chickens this much.

I am totally egg obsessed and trying to achieve the most colorful egg basket (and colorful chickens) in my suburban backyard. Seasonal availability and hatchery minimums are somewhat a hinderance, so I’m dependent on what my local feed store happens to carry or what I can produce myself using my incubators by mixing hens and roosters of different breeds, thus getting a variety of eggs.

My current laying birds include Easter Egger, Buff Orp and Blue Wyandotte. I am getting more chicks next week: Black Dominant Copper and an Olive Egger. I wanted to get a white or cream egg layer. The store is getting a new shipment the end of the month.

Can’t decide between White Leghorn, Sicilian Buttercup, Speckled Sussex or…. Columbian Wyandotte-just because I want a white chicken and they’re so beautiful even though they lay brown eggs.

CATURDAY! 😻😀😹💙💚💖🌈

A little bit sad today? tsk tsk, SMILE! Life is beautiful, with all its pointy-painful rocks we find along our path, life is still worth living.

Sometimes watching a cute loving video can make our day, or looking at images that we like, it can be soothing and calming. That is why we should make ourselves start the day with a smile and a kindness in our hearts, and if we repeat it tomorrow, everyday, it will become a wonderful happy habit.

Let us start changing our lives for the better!!

NOTE: I love all animals, but cats…rob my heart…completely!! (I just wanted to share that with you, gals and guys)

 

JUST VISITING MY FELINE FRIEND!

SOME INTERESTING FACTS:

 

This fluffy friend of us is a small, usually furry, domesticated, carnivorous mammal that is valued by humans for its companionship and for its ability to hunt vermin and household pests.

They have been associated with humans for at least 9,500 years, and are currently the most popular pet in the world. Owing to their close association with humans. They are now found almost everywhere in the world. 

 

The writer David Derbyshire cites a 2007 CE research project in which, “the study used DNA samples from 979 wild and domestic kittens to piece together the feline family tree. 

They looked for markers in mitochondrial DNA – a type of genetic material passed down from mothers to kittens which can reveal when wild and domestic ones lineages were most closely related.”

Stunning Birds

 

STUNNING BIRDS

There are thousands of different beautiful species of birds on earth that it would take all of our lives forever to list them all, to photograph them all, to describe them all.

In this article, I want to show you a few of the many who I find just staggering.

Whether it’s for camouflage or attracting a mate, the birds listed below have all the colors of the rainbow in their beautiful feathers!

Wings

All birds have wings, although not all birds fly. Nor are wings confined to Aves; bats are flying mammals and most insects have wings.

Birds’ bodies are beautifully designed for flight, with strong chest muscles and just enough curve to their wings to provide lift. Differences in wing shape provide different advantages to the various bird species. The narrow, sharp-tipped wings of the falcon provide speed; albatrosses soar high on wings much longer than they are wide.

Staggering Wing Pattern

Most songbirds have elliptical, evenly shaped wings that facilitate quick, small movements in the tight spaces of their tree homes. Swimming birds, such as penguins and puffins, have flipper-shaped wings that propel them rapidly and gracefully through water.

Is It a bird, a Butterfly or a Crochet?

How To Cope with Anger While You are Grieving

How To Cope with Anger While You are Grieving 17

Losing a loved one can be one of the most painful and stressful events in your life, and it might cause severe emotional crisis that could develop into different physical symptoms or diseases:

  • Anger
  • Despair
  • Guilt
  • High blood pressure
  • Headaches
  • Bone aches
  • Worsening of arthritis symptoms.
  • Gastritis or worsening of symptoms.
  • And more….

This emotional maelstrom can affect behaviour and judgement. Many patients report to me stomach pain, eating habit changes: loss or gain of appetite, intestinal upsets, sleep disturbances and loss of energy. Of all life’s stresses, mourning can seriously test your natural defense systems. Existing illnesses may worsen or new conditions may appear.

In stressful and sad times you don’t need people around you who do not support you. You need to surround yourself with loving human beings who actually care about you. Go out with them, trust them if they have proven to you that they are loyal and faithful.

Having and caring for pets like dogs, cats, birds, is another way to find comfort. I especially love cats, but others prefer dogs or birds. Some people don’t like animals and would rather care for plants. Therefore, get into planting, gardening, farming and grafting. Some of my patients have expressed their liking towards social activities like volunteering, helping others, “not being at home where there are so many memories” — they say. It is fine, but remember,  sooner or later you have to face reality and stay at home. So do the volunteering for another reason such as helping others and just “not” to be at home.

There are other cats that are a little possessive, aggressive, they scratch if they don’t get their way! But my heart can’t stay away from them. I just love the little furry felines.

Do You Really Care?

0 votes

Sometimes we say we do care, we feel sorry for this or that, but what do we do about it? We just open a blog and complain, or what is worse, we open a ‘Fakebook’ account and start fighting, agreeing with strangers ideas, people’s opinions, we get annoyed, start stupid  ’causes’ (a waste of time), get into weird communities or ‘friending’ weirdos like vegans or animal obsessive compulsive rescuers who only hurt the same beings they are ‘trying’ to help: the animals (this topic requires its own post), etc.

Do you really care? Sometimes I feel like wearing Melania’s infamous coat: I don’t really care, do you? REASON: Just to take some weight off my shoulders for a day. Otherwise I might wear it in a daily basis.
