    michellc, if you check in today you ought to look at a group called Custom Chicken Coops in Chattanooga TN on Facebook. They show a picture of a coop that I would very roughly estimate to be about 9×15, typical coop with a house at the back and a screened in area in front. Yep, it’s nice looking, but to me, basic materials.

    Starts at $10,000. Now, I am a capitalist and have no problem with profit. But man, I cannot see anybody paying that price for something I know got built for probably $500 bucks or so, and in a few hours if you know what you’re doing. That’s the starting price too. There are optional add ons.

    We are looking at a little property out in the country that has a chicken coop. Don’t know if I want chickens. I’d have to think about that. But it’s the typical country coop. Looks like every piece of scrap in the neighborhood went into building it. And I am sure it works just as well for the chickens.

      We had chickens when I was a kid, and I’ve never felt warmly towards them, but I might consider having chickens if I lived in the country.

        I know nothing about keeping them. I don’t know how much work it is, and how much mess it is, and whether it would be good or bad to have them around with grandkids there. I am thinking no.

        Stella, that’s why I hate chicken, in the 82ABN Div. we had chicken for every meal for two years. Hot, cold, fried, baked, feathers on or off…..
        Having a chicken coop, draws critters you may not want. After a couple of months you have to move the coop, due to soil recovery…..

    REPORT: Barack Obama’s Troubling β€œDictator In Exile” Behavior

    …We raise these questions after reading this report from

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has received former U.S. President Barack Obama at her office in Berlin for a meeting characterized by German officials as a routine private encounter with a former international peer.

    Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, went out his way to emphasize that the chancellor has met repeatedly with ex-heads of state and government β€œwith whom she worked together closely and well for a time.”

    We should be demanding to know what was discussed during their private time together.

    Seibert continued to stress that the meeting had no implications for current German-U.S. relations.

    When the spokesman was asked whether Merkel and Obama were sending a signal to President Donald Trump, Seibert fired back: β€œI would firmly reject that impression.”

    Uh, huh. Seibert doth deny too strongly.

    That meeting took place in late November 2017…

Considering Germany’s very VERY strong trade ties with Iran, post-Revolution, and its history of supplying banned WMD technology to any Israeli-hating Moslem country with the cash to pay. You can take the Germany out of Nazism but…

    Posted this next door, thought I’d share:

    We may be seeing a major Left tactic in the 2020 elections taking shape” Deepfake Videos.

    The prog push to β€˜identify’ β€˜phony’ videos posted on social media is drawing Congressional and DoD interest, DARPA’s supposed to be working on a way to detect β€˜phony’ videos using defensive technology – just like the way they worked on hacking into every electronic device, including the groundbreaking work on hacking into and taking over the computer in your car.

    The news tonite had a piece on Rep Schiff pushing hard for quick Congressional intervention in controlling Deepfake Videos before the 2020 election as the young voters aren’t as easily fooled by Deepfake as are older voters…see where this is going?

    Look for more Congressional control over content offered in 2020 and subsequent elections, especially as we β€˜older voters’ (wink wink, nudge nudge) are too ****ing stupid to drink the kool aid and eat the Rat droppings.

    If you build it, be sure to put hardware cloth on the underneath & bottom couple of feet so critters with claws can’t just tear their way in. Gotta worry about hawks & owls, too. My grandmother had top fencing as well as sides. Big problem is cleaning out the droppings, which are toxic to grass and other living things, incuding your nose….
    That said, I have read they are really nice pets, make calming noises, some like to sit in people’s laps and be stroked.

      Thanks Czarina, I’m not sure what they did but so far so good, it is built hardy enough to discourage the local bob cat, they have a pet cat that only goes outside with them and I have warned them about hawks and eagles, πŸ™πŸΌ.

      My niece rescues abandon baby mice and nurses them to freedom, she names her chickens and gets angry at the circle of life in nature. I guess not really “farm girl” material in the traditional sense but it is working for them as they learn through trial and error.

      They recently resumed an adult dog who is fitting very nicely into their family πŸ™‚ !

      Oh and they have two guinea pigs !

      When I used to keep chickens, I once had a Rooster that was a Black Australorpe named Monty. I could hold him in my arms like a baby with his legs 2 ’til 4 and rub his tummy. He’d close his eyes and go to sleep! He was a great Rooster with about 16 hens. He would even help feed the chicks, and guard his whole family from the hawk. If you are only going to have 2 or 3, get hens. Especially if you have close neighbours that might not like being awoken at 5:00 am 7 days a week!

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
