Spud, I had to stop in the middle of the highway one evening last week to let a herd of deer cross. I counted twelve of them. I know where they cross and always slow to about thirty mph on that stretch of road. Turkey feed in the fields on the same stretch and I see upwards of twenty plus almost daily. They become a problem when they get to close to the highway and decide to fly across it. Turkey's can't fly high and one almost took my windshield out last year.
There's a video on YouTube showing where the main highway crossing from Henderson KY to Evansville Indiana was closed by state troopers a couple years ago to let the deer cross from the flooded bottoms to higher ground. There are hundreds of them crossing at once while traffic sits and waits. It's pretty amazing. I've never seen that many deer in my life.

I'm going to try dandelion greens right away while it's still cold.  Maybe my bitter-sensitive tongue won't be as repelled.

You peeps with the wildlife make it sound interesting, despite the problems they bring.

Wow I'm behind :)
Joan, those eggs look just like our hen's laid the first two years. Then the colors kind of set into browns. With an occasional blue one.
Randy, I read from an earlier post you saw a turkey. We are lousy with them. I love to look through the windows and see them. Our electric fence keeps them out of the yard. Turkey mites are a problem if we don't.
Daniel, the dandelion greens are beautiful. I think the cooler soil makes them better. All greens grown in this area turn bitter when the temps start rising.
Someone mentioned owls. They nest in the woods in front of our house. When we got chickens they kept moving in closer. The finally started landing on the trees close to the back door. They were thinking 'chicken dinner'. We had to start leaving the hen's in the pen because the hawks moved in too :)

I've tried old and young dandelion greens, and they're way too bitter for me.

I've tried dandelion greens a few times--pretty bitter, and I don't like to salt them. I'll stick to regular greens. (I read your blogspot, Daniel, but didn't comment.)

Asparagus is coming on strong! Yummy.

Charlie seems alert, and protective. How does he treat adult chicken? Does it make a difference if he is raised with contact from hatching to adulthood? 

One egg a day from Americauna! With two laying hens, you have an egg for you and Ning daily, or an omelet weekly. With those three chicks, if they are hens, you will turn yellow with a white outer skin! 

How do your little ones look this week?

Very pretty eggs.  Don't have to color them for the kids seeking them this sunday.

And I fixed an omelet with morels for breakfast this morning. I'm not "yoking"!

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 13, 2017 at 1:15am

Daniel, they are real treasures. Are you raising them now and do you expect to have eggs from this breed? I'm asking from ignorance of chicken breeds. 

OH! My goodness, Americauna chickens are lovely and their eggs come colored:

Oh, I see them now, after Joan mentioned chicks or ducks.

When I looked at the picture, I couldn't see what it was.  At first, it looked like a 3-D picture on the wall, with Charlie inspecting it.  After a few seconds, I saw that it was a box on the floor, but what was in the upper right corner, I just couldn't figure-out.  It looked like a boar's head, and that's all I saw until I read Joan's post.
