We're Having a Party!

I don't know about you, but I live wayyyy out in the country. I wouldn't change it, but there is one thing I do miss about suburban/urban life...

I miss getting together with oodles of friends for fun product parties! Then I saw the adorable rooster warmer (the white one) that is on sale throughout the month of February... and I decided to go ahead and host a Scentsy party ONLINE! Heck - I have met so many wonderful folks out here, and there's no way you'd be able to find my house anyway - - so I do hope you will come!

Where Do Eggs Come From - How Chickens Create Eggs

The following post contains graphic material.

Some time ago, we ran an article on this very subject, complete with artistic representations of the inner workings of a mature, laying hen. (Chickens, Eggs, Fertilization, Reproduction and Other Insider Information) Now, due to an unfortunate hawk attack, we can show you the real thing.

Signs of a Stroke in Chickens - Yes, Chickens Can and Do Have Strokes.

Many of you will remember my post about my gyandromorphic chicken. You can read the post HERE if you would like to. Since the writing of the article, we named the chicken Italy. We couldn't call it a he or she and didn't want to keep referring to it as "it" so somehow "it" morphed into "Italy" over time.

Now I'm not so sure if Italy was truly a gyandromorph. It/he certainly may have been, but the more likely scenario, based upon recent developments, is that Italy may have had a chicken-y form of Cerebral Palsy.
