As a direct result of winter ice storms, crow attack and old age, the legs of our ppf's were showing signs of fatigue.

The fix - I glued two electrical crimp-on connectors into the bird's underbelly with Araldite and then replaced the legs into the glued in connectors.

Flamingos now look a lot happier.

With our flock we have had a few traveling issues, that and a cold winter has made a few adjustments necessary. The little guys complained it was too cold so Irene had to make them snuggies. Being warm they started starring out the window waiting to go camping. After a few warm days they really got anxious until finally a couple of them ventured outside. It's still just a little too cold.

Cheers, Dan & Irene and the flock

I tried. But the closest I could find was a flamenco couple living in a vintage Airstream in Austin.

you think I'm kidding, don't you.
