    RIP Bacon 2/2018 - 9/1/2021

    RIP Bacon 2/2018 - 9/1/2021 Bacon is front right I'm not sure what is going on for my flock between the heat wave, thick choking smoke, or what is knocking my hens down. I checked them often practically daily. When I'm out watering the garden every morning, I watch them and if anything is off, I check them on the spot. This spring after getting the chick, I had 30. Now 6 are roosters and at least 5 have or will go to freezer camp. 2 roosters have gone to the dinner table already. I'm down to 24 chickens now. Bacon was perfectly healthy 4 days ago then she started to act a little odd. She stopped hanging out with her friends, not in her normal spot at night, the roosters lost interest in her, hen below her picking on her, and she stayed by herself. I separated her, but was still waiting for the medicated I needed that was 2 weeks overdue. Yes, I ordered and should of received it last month. It finally came yesterday, but sadly too late. Bacon died around 1 pm this afternoon. Bacon is buried by Sweet exactly 1 month apart. Bacon is bottom left, black body, brown face

    RIP Sweet 2/2014 -8/1/2021

    Sweet has died, 2/2014 to 8/1/21. rest in peace Sweet. The last thing I said to her was it's ok to go, your wings will let you fly. Yesterday morning I knew when I saw her I'd be saying good bye to my 7 year old hen Sweet soon. She was one of my oldest hens in the flock. She was buff orpington, show type. there are 2 kinds, Sour is the other. A few months ago, I notice Sweet was having memory problems, remembering who were flock members including her best friend, go in the coop at night to her spot. I'd find her sitting on the floor. She was the 2nd top hen in my flock this year, but was the top hen for a few years before. She doesn't run as fast, but I figure that's due to her age. Yesterday morning, Sweet was still in the coop just laying there. Her best friend Sour (7 years old also) was chatting away. I picked her up and she didn't throw a fit like normal. Sweet seemed weak, listless, and her comb has a purple tint that's getting worse. Sweet also has diarrhea that started during her last night while in the coop. Since Sweet died, my other 7 year old hen, Sour, is very depressed. They were raised together and never have been separated before. They'd wait in or by the coop while the other was doing their egg duties. If one got in a fight, the other would join in to help. They watched their flock and corrected any bulling fighting, etc, watch and call out warnings for predators. They were pretty much attached at the hip. They were bonded, hints their names reflected this. With other bonded pets I've had when one dies the other has willed themselves to death in a few months. Not every time, but the surviving one does take a health blow that takes months or a year to get them to recover. My 10 year old cat, Nut Nibbler, is still on medication years later for her loss of her beloved Moose. I had to take Sour out of the coop this morning. She was in her spot in the rafters just standing there quietly. A couple hens were near talking to her, but Sour looked so sad. She's normally the first one out as she is the top hen. I took her out of the coop and put her in front of some water and she did drink and eat the treats I gave her. She did talk a little when I gave her some pets. I've been spending more time with her. I know she is grieving. Yesterday before Sweet died, Sour was guarding her from all flock members even though they weren't picking on her. Sour did move a little when I'd check on Sweet, but stayed close. Sorry Sour, there isn't anything I can do for her except to end life. Sour talked to Sweet until the end. It must of been breaking her heart to watch her best friend in the world die in front of her. Sour demanded to be near when Sweet's grave was being dug and has barely left it all morning. Sour is standing on Sweet's grave now with her head bowed down. I swear it's like a rain cloud is over her. When my other hens are near her, they act depressed. it takes a little time for them to recover after leaving Sour.

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    Hey everyone I am sheepishly returning to this forum to hopefully make good on my last year's poor results on my last plant. I DID get three fully flowered females (Pineapple Haze and Second Sight genetics) that turned out very good (super-heady high with one pipe hit of ground flower), but the taste, while not unpleasant, isn't the "old School Hash" that I am looking for. We ( the wife and I) still have a good supply of flower that is in curing jars and it is our staple. I am about to try again (indoors, in a garage again but I will come up with some way to better ventilate it during the upcoming hot summer months) and I plan to grow two genetic strains, Pineapple Haze x Second Sight, and Goat Yogi, both courtesy of Patience of Cannabeizein fame. This time I plan to be a LOT more vigilant (especially during flower) and maybe try a different source of light for flower. I know that Backdoor has recommended CMH lighting but my budget ($0) won't allow it. The 5000k CFLs still work and will be used again, well in veg at least. I know that I deserve a lot of derision for my awful stewardship of my last female from last year. so go ahead, I can take it!
