This pic is taken by Me, with a Digital Camera, and is 720px × 960px, 576x720 would destroy the pic's aspect ratio, and yes I've tried resizing the pic...

The size in the rules is just a suggestions for largest acceptable size. (And I believe that is pretty clear the way I said it.) It's for people who want to post photos that are huge, like the ones I take using my iPhone. Those pix are about 60+ inches by 40+ inches and far too big to post - both physically and by file size. The size I suggest is a reminder that they need to be reduced considerably before posting to the group. (I can't believe I have to go over this again.) No one is suggesting changing a photo's aspect ratio. Common sense people.

Here, once again, are the

Rules:

Post only original photos taken by you. (One exception is if someone takes a photo OF you, you can post it here.)

Not too big. In inches I wouldn't go much bigger than 8" x 10", but that's just
a general guideline, not a hard and fast rule. In pixels that would be 576 x 720.
(You all know they should be 72dpi, right?)

Let's keep them rated PG, please. :-)

Any suggestions for more rules?

My dad worked on the Vincent Thomas bridge, as a Toll Taker until He was able to get a small pension to go along with His SS, one day Lloyd Bridges(Commander Cain in 1978) showed up, paid the toll and that made My day when I heard about it.

The Orville - Last episode of the season.

I knew it was a new episode, but it sure looked like - and had a similar plot to - an earlier episode.

I'm not real sure how I feel about it, but part of me is wondering if the writers are already out of ideas.

In some stores people take the broken egg from one carton and create a "broken egg carton." You take a good egg from the broken egg carton to replace the broken egg from the carton you will buy. (I hope this makes sense.)

Thelma has started laying.

How do they taste?


I haven't eaten any. Don't ask me why. I have no idea.

Started watching M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening", last night, but it was getting weird, so I turned it off. I'll try to finish it, tonight.

I recorded that. I'll watch eventually.

That's unless they might be using the same nest to lay the eggs.

Do they do that? I'll have to check.

I remember once my mother made scrambled eggs and my portion had in it a 1/2" long skeleton of a chicken. I couldn't eat it ......

Ah geez. I think I'd vomit.

Then I saw this:



Thelma has been a busy girl! Louise hasn't started laying eggs yet, or she has but they're hidden.

The nest is right outside my "office" window.

Finished watching all 20 episodes of Ghost Stories.

Warning. The comedy jokes can range from mild to outright adult.

Where does this series reside?

we had 15,000 chicken as a kid and 1/2 of them were Rhode island Reds, I like those eggs better for some reason.

If your going to feed them get a little oyster shells and some grit. it comes ground up and they need it for egg shells, the grit they might that out of the yard anyway.

Yes like one person said don't let them in the house because they might have Red Mites and they bite, we had to spray for them about every 3 months in the chicken coop, just like fleas.

15,000?!! Holy crap! You must have raised them to sell (either the chickens or the eggs), right?

I think I got them some oyster shells. I think I left the bag in the car. I got something that I left in the car. (My mom was visiting and I didn't want her making a fuss about me buying things for "someone else's" chickens.

Red mites?! Oh no! I think those are the little buggers I get in my back yard every year. I'll have to do some research.

Need some custard recipes? Eric loves vanilla custard for breakfast, and since it is basically milk and eggs with a little sugar, I figure it is better for him than donuts for breakfast.


I'm not a big custard eater. In fact, I can't remember the last time I ate custard, unless you count some pastry that had custard inside. Well, wait. I can't remember that, either! I'm diabetic, so sugar is a no-go. I can't imagine how it would taste using an artificial sweetener.

Wiki says:
The Rhode Island Red was developed as dual-purpose breed, to provide both meat and eggs. Since about 1940, it has been selectively bred predominantly for egg-laying qualities, and the modern industrial Rhode Island Red is a layer breed. Rhode Island Reds have been used in the creation of many modern hybrid breeds, mainly due to the prolific egg laying abilities of the Rhode Island Red.[citation needed]

The traditional dual-purpose "old-type" Rhode Island Red lays 200–300 brown eggs per year, and yields rich-flavored meat suitable for making chicken stew

What are you doing with all those eggs?

I haven't seen any so far. If the birds are old enough to lay eggs, then they're laying them in a secret location. (I don't really eat many eggs, anyway.)

Insomnia has me watching The Orville, first episode. Not bad. I had to laugh when one of the crew asked if he could have soda on the bridge, and they later showed him sipping it through a straw. I always did wonder why they didn't have cup-holders on those Star Trek bridge chairs, lol. ;~)


I like that show. It's not as funny as I'd like it to be, but I guess they want it to be a true sci-fi show.

Those are a couple of very handsome chickens!


Thank you. I think so, too!


I found out they are Rhode Island Reds.
