I have a profound respect for the natural world, and in doing so try to bring more of it into my life.

I post skulls and bones, animals but especially birds, feathers, trees, grow-your-own, mountains, chicken-keeping, Scottish landscapes and other things.

All gory/dead animal posts are tagged dead animalThe Tibia to my Fibula

"I know that birds like bread, and thought it would be funny to have them eat their own effigy. I made a pixellated picture of a pigeon out of 538 precisely toasted pieces of bread."

Yup, voluntarily every Friday

I’ve given up trying to correct people.

FUCK YES

I always use the phrase, “Murdered seven different ways from Sunday”, when people try to pronounce my last name.

I have a fairly regular name: Daisy, but I live in France where everyone goes: Desiree? Dazie? Daghjdskgjc?

Fuckin.

My name is so boring. Robinson. But people still manage to fuck it ip. Robison, robitissun, robeinsen. The fuck

My moms last name is Studioso and you would THINK people could get it right. “studio” and “so”. Not a hard concept. Hearing people fuck it up is so funny by so aggravating.

Monger

Seriously, it’s not that hard, like you know the words ironmonger, warmonger, fearmonger, fishmonger, it’s the exact same

One of my hens attempted to crow this morning.

I didn’t realize it at the time. No, my immediate assumption was that something was brutally murdering one of my birds. I rushed to the rescue only to find the yard conspicuously empty of threats, but I didn’t relax until that awful rasping caw came again from my right.

Here she is compared to another black bantam I got at the same time as her. Her comb and wattles are huge, but I just kinda disregarded it because those two aren’t the same breed even though they’re similar looking. Shouldn’t have, that comb is almost rooster-sized regardless of breed differences.

Just wanted to share, I figured Tumblr would get a kick out of a non-binary chicken.

Years ago I had something similar happen. In the early spring a batch of mixed breed chicks hatched (all I can remember is that they were 1/4 silkie) as the months passed and the chicks grew and their sex characteristics developed, all hens… sort of.

One bird, a petite black hen, started crowing, by the fall she was crowing just as well and often as the roosters we kept in the coop. But it didn’t stop there. During the winter I noticed this hen exclusively roosting with other hens, not that odd, but then one day I saw her mounting them.

When we let them out off the coop to free-range in the spring she had a small harem of other hens. They would follow her, “mate” with her, and only roost next to her, and, if a rooster antagonized her or her harem, she would spar with him (not always successfully). 

So remember, if anyone tries to explain away non-binary identities with a “Natural Order of Things” argument, flap aggressively at him and try to stab him with your leg spurs.
