Yup, and he won. For those of you who don't know what we are talking about, there was a picture of a male model in briefs. To say he was well endowed is putting it mildly. That catalog became the talk of the country. Every woman wanted a copy of that catalog.

Switching gears, here. Today I've been tossing chopped veggies (bean butts, the core from the cabbage used yesterday, stalks from the chard, etc.) over the deck railing. Watching 20 hens (and 1 roo) run at "breakneck chicken speed" to reach the bounty of food had me laughing. There is a 3.5 ft high (I know, I paid for it and I paid by the foot) septic bed field between the house and the barn. It is so funny to watch the flock racing over the top of this and running as fast as their little legs can carry them to where the food is (they probably would be tasty chickens with good muscle tone...but they are NOT those kind of chickens). Who knew having chickens could be so much FUN!

A chicken Calvary is what comes to my mind. Some of them have their wings out for balance, more often than not, one slips on one of the lids for the septic (these are plastic lids). It can be dead-quiet in the yard, but as soon as "food starts falling from the sky" they are up and running. This flock is VERY food motivated. The Road Island Reds (these live at the DH's house, but will most likely move to the farm for the winter) are not food motivated. It is hard to herd them in before the time they want to go in because of this lack of motivation. My girls, however, are easy to manipulate if food is involved.

I know the kind of tank you are talking about. My son had one in the back yard when he lived in Vermont. His boxer puppy used to slide all over it when he tried to run across it.

The Saints would lie on top of it and survey their kingdom.

CWS, your girls are motivated by food because you feed them the good stuff! You really should video tape them for us all.
