Day 28: gift

This is not fanciful. I’m told that a good cockerel will seek out the best morsels for his girls and call them over to share.

Toxic masculinity, y’all.

p.s. our clocks changed this weekend. Did yours?

Gonna miss these daily chikken pix when the Inktober thing is over 🙂

Our clocks change next weekend on Sunday Nov. 4.

What an amazing drawing, Stoaty. I hope you turn it into a larger work. I’d want one 🙂

I think after the election is over, I’m going to lobby my representatives to legislate Daylight Saving Time out of existence.

DST ends NEXT weekend on this side of the Pond. At least for those states which still do DST.

What an amazing journey! Three more days to go and S. Weasel will have completed this mission. So happy to have been along for the ride and cheering for her to cross the finish line!
What to do for a celebration… I have an idea!

Sign me up for THAT lobbying effort Deborah! I’ve been hatin’ on daylight savings for YEARS!

I don’t mind when the clocks GIVE me an hour. It’s when the bastids take it away that I get grumpy.

(and now some mood music for zee cheekens)

Ah, Mon cheeken, love, come, share theese fantastic bug I have found cheri.

Yes, it will be a pity when inktober ends, the world could use more chicken ink pictures, and less of the crap we’ve had an overabundance of lately.

Nice one, Stoaty. That’s sweet; I had no idea roosters were family providers to that extent.

Living near the bottom of a 2000-foot deep river valley at 46+ degrees latitude, it will be dark at both ends of the workday when we jump back onto Standard time. If we were on Mountain Time, as our state capitol is, I could do without the semi-annual hassle with clocks. Otherwise, we’re sun-starved until mid-February. I like Deborah’s suggestion to lobby our reps. I want our state to secede entirely from the left coast.

Now that I’m retired the “fall back” isn’t a problem, but living in the country, the loss of daylight at the end of the day does make a difference in how many daily chores can be completed.

@capnip. The Anti-Daylight Saving Time movement is the perfect States’ Rights issue.

I’m willing to stop springing forward and falling back. I think instead of going to one or the other, though, we should split the difference and make it a half-hour change and make that our “forever” time.

I’ve lived in both Arizona and Hawaii and staying on one standardized time always struck me as sensible.

My car clock stays on daylight time ’cause I can’t remember how to change it and don’t want to be bothered to look.

Oh, but whatever time zone we go to / stay on, it should not be what the UN or EU would want.

Well, this is the first year I’ve ever had roosters in my flock, catnip. But I understand they can be incredibly gallant, if you get a good one.

The one we had when I was a kid was an oversexed little fart who left all the hens with bare backs 🙁
