Farm animals. Gosh I have lots and always share mainly on Monday Portrait So this time I am heading down a different path to what may be the face of a modern farm.
“Yes, they chose pink for me as I am the prettiest chook in the show.” “I don’t mind have a bit of a make-over as it’s just for a bit of fun for the kids plus it is a good promotion for the Rainbow Farm”
“I am stuck with green. Boy do the others have a good laugh!” “Like how come you have lettuce instead of feathers? Do you lay Brussel Sprouts?” “I’ll be glad when I get home and get a wash”
“This is madness!!!” “You have to get me out of here!!” “I keep seeing these weird looking chickens!!”
“I don’t see what his problem is.” “Do you?”
OK, you talked me into it. Here’s a bit of cute to finish
These chooks were no help when chopping wood. As soon as they heard me at the chopping block, they would appear hoping for white ants, which were fed to them readily. They really like the white grubs that burrow into the wood sometimes called Witchetty Grubs, a larvae of a Ghost Moth or Giant Wood Moth. They are a delicacy mostly eaten raw but when cooked “it is said the roasted grubs taste like a cross between chicken and prawns. The flesh will firm up with cooking, but the inside retains a soft texture much like an uncooked egg yolk.” *From Gardening Know How
After I had an accident and hurt my back, I took my firewood blocks down the road to my mates place. He had a hydraulic block splitter. It took less than an hour to split a ute load which probably would have taken me a day at least.
And the Winner is……. Earlier this month the Grafton Show was on. It was a bit wet and muddy but I managed to get over to the wood chop event to an Australian champion compete. He didn’t win his heat but this bloke did.
