The girls love to eat the bird food put out for the cardinals and their friends. They can have a complete full container of their food, but it will be completely bypassed for the tasty wild bird food.
Here they are, the beggars, waiting for the bird seed to be put out. That's Squishy in the foreground, the champion egg layer. Blaze our "Teacup" chicken, she is the alpha. And Kitty who lays the prettiest green eggs, but only when she feels like it, which isn't very often.
There is a horrible odor emanating from the wall in my sons room. Something has crawled in there and breathed its last. Just in time for the Halloween season, we have a "dead smell" to invite it in. We looked up in the attic, but of course couldn't find anything. The wall is almost impossible to get into, and would need to be cut open to deal with this creepy little issue. It will surely get worse before it gets better.
