Busy weekend as usual.
We now have 3 brooders!
Hubby and The Kid have been on a building spree.
Thank goodness, because the meat chickens are going to need out of the coop in the Little Red Shed very, very soon!
Those nuggets grow fast. πŸ˜‰

And then this happened too:

This time it was easier to link to the Instagram post…
That’s our 1st Hatchers, in their new little yard. πŸ™‚

Just a couple of garden stakes pushed into the ground through some stucco wire and bam! Birbs can be outside.
Scary, scary, scary at first.
But we put their food out in the yard and that was enough to convince them to hop out and check out the great outdoors.
So their well on their way to becoming free rangin’ assholes.
Just the way we like our chickens…even if I do bitch about ’em.

And now some outside world stuff…

Our province has gone batshit crazy.
Locked down again, and they just closed schools.
I guess they’re not done destroying the small businesses who’ve had to close, yet again.
And their not done destroying the mental health of kids yet.
And screw the folks who can’t afford to stop working to be home with their kids that are too young to be left alone, because we’re “not allowed” to have people in our homes or on our property.
Listen, I get that the virus is real, but saying that one life lost is too many while destroying thousands more is flat out ridiculous.
But, I have my suspicion that the school closure is an attempt to force the shot on those who might not want their kids to get it.
I really, truly hope that I am wrong on that…really, really, really hope so…however, the timing and the fact that the school closure was announced on Mother’s Day, 2 days *after* the businesses being shut down was announced…it’s too coincidental in my books.
Especially since the time frame where the kids should be heading back after this shut down just happens to coincide with the time frame where our province is opening up eligibility to everyone 12 and over.
So, I suspect the medical discrimination is just over that hill there…and I suspect like good little citizens, the bulk of my province will happily medically discriminate against anyone who doesn’t force it into their child, lack of studies be damned.
It’s funny as fuck to me that suddenly alllllll the people who’ve chanted the mantra “my body my choice” for years are now saying the shot should be mandatory.
Pretty sure if I had no say in your medical decisions previous to the year the world lost it’s mind, you have no say in my medical decision now. Or ever.

And isn’t it interesting how that’s the big topic now, when you run into someone?
“Oh hey, get your shot yet”
The looks I get when I say “Nope.”

And before anyone starts with the screeching about me being an “anti-vaxer”, just don’t…
2 things I live by:
1. my body my choice
2. informed consent
That’s how it’s supposed to be.
We own our medical decisions for our meat suits, plain and simple.
If that bothers anyone, well…πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Oh and this is a big one…
Do not even dare to try the whole “if you don’t get the shot, you shouldn’t have access to health care” bullshit.
Canadian health care is not supposed to discriminate against people for their life choices and who gets cared for.
So really, take that shit and fuck off. Way the fuck off.
Besides, Hubby and I have paid into that health care system for our entire working lives, and that health care has paid for other people’s choices that we may not have agreed with, and at no fucking time have we tried to have them stripped of access to care, just because we didn’t like their life choices.

So fucking remember that, when you say people who “don’t act right” should lose access to health care, ‘kay?
Everyone pays in here, everyone has access to care.
Whether you like “how they act” or not.
Simple as fuck.

And that’s enough of that.
Because I’m trying to keep that shit out of this blog, but sometimes, the frustrations ooze out…and damn if this ain’t my place, so I’ll write what I want.

But to finish it out, I’ll share a picture of Ruby from the weekend…

Being all pretty and crabby af because I woke her from her nap.
I was *trying* to take pictures of her half buried in the straw pile, snoring her fool head off…but when she heard me open the gate she got up, hoping for treats.
Because that’s what a Fat Girl needs.
Have a great week folks, and don’t let the bastards grind ya down.

    We haven’t gotten the shot either and don’t intend to. We don’t fly and go to big events so why? We’ll see how far they take this. We’re just letting them run our lives. I think folks will get tired of this at some point.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Christine. β™₯

      My biggest worry is my Hubby’s work.
      There’s rumblings and rumours of the entire plant having to get it in order to keep their jobs.
      And even though we are supposed to have medical freedom and are not supposed to be forced into things like that, it’s a matter of lose the job and fight it in court afterwards.

      I am hoping more people get tired sooner, rather than later.
      Alas though, the bulk of Canadians are far too polite to consider standing up for themselves. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

    Ruby looks absolutely charming in her ‘why d’you wake me up for no treats?’ shot πŸ™‚ And the turkeys, the photo of the black one and the brown one, with reds and blues, beautiful! Chickens look beyond happy in their farm world πŸ™‚ Oblivious to the never-ending-looniness…..Just curious, is it possible to name every chicken…. soooooo many!

      I’m sure it might be possible to name them all…but we’re running close to 300 or so birds, between chickens, ducks and turkeys…with more eggs in the incubators…so, yeah…I don’t want to even think about names. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    I’ve noticed the new lockdowns always seem to coincide with special days when families try to get together. Easter. Thanksgiving. Christmas. Mother’s Day.

    Also, you amaze me with all your birds!!! ❀

      No doubt meant to wear us down/break us. And cause more division, because of course they make sure to prod everyone “you could have had this holiday, if everyone would have just acted *properly*”.

      Thank you! πŸ™‚ ❀
      We do have a lot of birds. lol
      And I'm already tired thinking about the Fall when bunches of them go to Freezer Camp.
      But we're never going to not eat meat here, and I fully believe I am 100% responsible to eat the best raised meat animals I can…and so we raise them so I know they've had the best lives.
      Plus, there's the bonus that I don't have to worry about my supply chain. πŸ˜‰

        Yup. The gaslighting is in overdrive. People get really angry when I point out to them that that is what they are doing, too. It doesn’t work on me, and they are in complete denial that that’s what they’re doing. Just as an abuser never believes they are abusive, and their actions are completely justified and appropriate, so to they believe their psychological manipulation is the “right” thing to do.

        And I’m with you when it comes to meat supply!
