Re-claiming Our House

For the last 6 weeks we have had 130 chicks, 2 turkeys, 5 pigs, 3 dogs and 2 frogs living at our house in Bunga...

Enough is enough...



Last Saturday before Christmas Christine took 115 chicks out to Bethany Village to begin their life in their new home that EvFree Conejo Valley built for them back in November...

On Monday our friend Tad came over and killed the 2nd Turkey... Turkey #1 feed 40 people for Thanksgiving... Turkey #2 only feed 14 people because she has spent the last month hatching her eggs... they all lived a short life since mama Turkey smothered them instead of giving them a little air to breathe.... some turkeys aren't cut out to be mothers...


The pigs all went out to Bethany on Wednesday... despite a wicked case of piggy stomach flu... ask Christine for technical terms... they were all bigger than their counterparts back at the farm and immediately won the alpha pig contests around the troff of slop...



The puppies are still around but not for long... girl puppy... yet to be named will stay... but boy puppy is about to become a man and begin watchdog duties for someone else... they have been doing a great job of training our boys... yesterday Kadin was beating them with a stick and they knocked him on his back and gave him a good face cleaning... I know its my job to run over to help Kadin but I walked slowly as he giggled and cried for help... I thought it would be a good lesson about giving beatings to animals...

Last week the 2 frogs living in our trash cans died an untimely death... at the end of Kadin's beloved stick...

"So they can kill them and eat pig meat, " Jason replied.
No illusions here.

Live by the stick or.... Kadin you need to learn to use some new skills Dude.
The outcome is always bad for the one on the receiving end. Where's your compassion?

There were frogs too??? I missed that one altogether! I hope that wasnt the can that I emptied the vomit bucket in otherwise it may not have been the stick that killed them =)
