Hey Pimento you crazy cat, This may violate the rules because its probably considered illegal.

Anyway, about a month ago my work took me to an undisclosed chicken farm west of Brisbane. There was no one around and my curious nature got the better of me. I thought I heard a strange noise coming from inside one of the buildings and upon investigation this is what I saw.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/z27w61453bn3qyt/VIDEO0058.mp4?dl=0

I figured since there were dead chicks around they wouldn't mind if I 'liberated' one. Since I don't have my own coup I gave it to a friend. Rocky is one lucky chicken and I now living the free range life he was meant to. I would have loved to save them all, but I would have been fired surely if found out.

I'm hoping the moral victory is enough to overcome the illegality of my actions.

saved a crow today and I felt good about it. ok before anybody says "what a crow",

no a raven. ravens are the smartest bird in the sky. they are smarter than pigs and dogs

and as smart as monkeys. well this guy was not that smart today. found him in the bottom

of a 200 litre plastic drum we keep milk in for the calves, up to his shoulders in milk,

looking like a drowned rat. He must have been getting the dry crusty bits of milk that was

sticking to the sides and slipped in. he was looking quite tired and greasy from fat in the

milk. so i grabbed a bottle of water from the car, that had warmed up from sitting in there

all day and washed, what crap of I could off. still to wet to fly I sat him on a fence post to

dry in the sun and get his energy back.

I am not going into this cool give away because A. i have no proof and B. there are cooler

things to be done. like selling or giving away fresh vegies out of a car boot in Woolworths car park.

Pimento you should change the name of this thread to 'what kind things have you done for birds'. I'm not trying to have a go at anyone, just find it amusing that pretty much every reply (including mine) has to do with birds :)

I'll chuck in $20 if its going to Nailthesnail.

gotta redeem myself on this forum. make up for all the ranting. :slap::P

Good onya man, if he does 'win' can you please forward the $20 to him or to who the 'winner' is :worship:

Everyone is being so kind and it is inspiring, so seeing as I will be moving houses soon and wont have any room to grow anything I will also chuck in a nice variety of seeds from my collection to the winner.
Lophs, Trichs, catha, brugmansia, desmanthus, acacia etc.

Keep the posts/ cool deeds coming :)

Cool, nice thing to do Ethos, could you also contact the winner and send them seeds :worship:

if theres an issue sending them to OS if the "winner' is OS, then maybe they could go to the runner up.................

Yayyy, free Rocky, hope that chook has a real nice life now, no KFC for him/her.

As it involved thievery, technically it may be against the guidelines, however acts of random bravery and chook freeing should always be exempted :)..... always.

Pimento yeah man I will send some stuff to anyone in australia. Except for seedlings to WA cause that would probably be against the law. But I think seeds are ok :)

Ouft, I was going to make a cool animation of this but I got caught up! Late entry but I just got my mate out of a massive drug dependency addiction due to depression caused by his family ditching him!

Took a few years of him going in and out but he's quit everything but cigarettes now!

Soon he will be free of it all!

Hey, Just posting to let you know have recieved $200 from Pimento and Anonymous member.

Thank you so much, I am thinking I might use it to get a better juicer for her as she doesn't have a juicing one and my one is old and budget.


Thanks Anon and Pimento it means a whole lot to me and my friend.

And thanks for the prints pimento I'm so excited!

Cool, thanks for letting us know NTS. :)

I had asked NTS to post here when the hunj from myself and the very generous anonymous member arrived.

So there is no confusion the anonymous member that donated the extra hunj is not Machineelf.

I've also asked NTS to post here when prizes from others have arrived so we know alls been delivered. :)

Best wishes to your friend NTS

Maybe we could start a twice-yearly comp, kinda like a scholarship prize as reward for doing positive things with ethnobotanicals? A grant, that's what I'm getting at more or less... Whoever wants to donate however much wouldn't matter or be expected and we'd all get to vote on who deserved each round.

Just an idea, but there's no way I'd organise or it just wouldn't happen...
