We have learned to keep new chickens at home for a month before allowing them to join the others foraging at the edge of the woods.  Once we had a young hen leave home for three months and then return - we had allowed her to forage right away and she was confused about where home was still, plus hens need to be kept together for the first few days when a newcomer arrives, because the pecking order has to be re-established each time the flock changes, and there is no way of circumventing that ritual. :)

Good info!

=================================
USGS and EMSC do not agree.  Reporting totals from both.
Earthquake totals in last 24 hours according to:
 
http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/
41 'quakes of magnitude >2.4   Total mags = 175.1   Avg mag = 4.27 (*)

http://www.emsc-csem.org/Earthquake/?filter=yes
74 'quakes of magnitude >2.4   Total mags = 290.7   Avg mag = 3.93
 
(*) magnitude >2.4 in USA, and >4.4 elsewhere.  (>2.4 worldwide not available)
-----------------------------------------------------
 
Three strongest quakes from either site:
*  Mag. 7.0  east of southern New Caledonia and south of Vanuatu (both sites).
*  Mag. 6.6  east of southern New Caledonia and south of Vanuatu (both sites).
*  Mag. 5.9  east of southern New Caledonia and south of Vanuatu (both sites).

Largest groups of multiple quakes from either site:
*  18  east of southern New Caledonia and south of Vanuatu (EMSC.  USGS: 17).
*  6  in Alaska; mid-west mid-north, central mid-east, central south, and south-east nearby in Canada (USGS.  EMSC: 3).

*  3  in or around each of:   mid-east Indonesia, N&E Japan, around Puerto Rico, and California USA    (at least one source site each).
--------------------------
 
From USGS:
 
*  Little shakers (mag. 1.0 ~ 2.4) in Alaska (18 Qs), western Montana (4 Qs), NW Wyoming, California and nearby in Mexico, Nevada, and Oklahoma (USA);  and in Puerto Rico.
 
*  39 little shakers in California, Nevada, and nearby in Mexico; plus many smaller ones.  (Clusters in central east California and nearby, and SE of Los Angeles and nearby)
 
*  1 'quake (of all magnitudes) in Yellowstone Park, Wyoming and Montana (mag. = 1.3).
 
*  Stronger 'quakes (mag. > 2.4) in California (2 not 3), Texas, and Oklahoma (USA);  and in Alaska (6 Qs), and Puerto Rico region (3 Qs).
 
Notes:  Quarry blasts and explosions are excluded from above lists and totals.
USGS lists some sites near borders as near locations across the border.
--------------------------------

40 earthquakes of magnitude >1.9 in last 24 hours in Euro-Med region, according to http://www.emsc-csem.org/Earthquake/Map/zoom.php?key=1&typ=world#2 (17 approx. in Turkey).

Australia, New Zealand region / Re: anyone down south

Well time passes ,still no planet ,mind u if it was anywhere near us I would suggest the moon ripped to pieces and earth gone ,nothing to report here in Aussie land ....nothing !! Yes I do look up but nothing ?Steve Olsen still going on about lens flares ,that could go on for years....

Hello rotorman. 
By the grace of  the Almighty or whoever runs this show, in this part of the universe, we have not yet had the full effects of the Planet X System.
I do understand the frustrations of people who had expected to see it full blown up in the sky since 2012.
Please: Let's be glad we are not experiencing total devastation.
Have you seen some of the recent Yowusa articles with videos?
The people who are capturing images have the latest cell phones.
It does not give off light, it reflects light only.
IMHO, in time we will be seeing it.
If you look at the earth changes and terrible events of the past couple years, you might see (not mandatory but you might see) that we have been experiencing the effects for awhile now...
I did have to modify your post. It does not particularly offend me personally, but had to do that. Will send you a PM on it.
Wishing you all the best, knowledge, foresight, safety, always,
Barb Townsend

Socrates, That's a beautifully simple way of reading that verse - will ponder it some more :)

Consciousness / the human (mental) condition
« Last post by Socrates on Today at 05:45:01 AM »
Contrary to popular assumptions, the human brain is not just some cerebral machine or other. In fact, all facets of humanity are housed there in some shape or form [disregarding the heart and other organs... but that would make this topic way too complicated]:
- the cerebral / logical
- emotional
- primal / instinctual
- spiritual

Popular culture just speaks of "the brain" but things are in fact much more complicated (as attested by data, research and practice). The question here, however, is how this all relates to the matter of 'survival / prepping' and Planet X.
Mainly, this has to do with survival situations in which emotions, spirituality and logic become moot. In just such situations we fall back on experience, instinct and training; 2 of these we can influence greatly today: experience and training.

This is why History Channel's Alone series are popular; we like to explore the instinctual and subconscious, especially since popular culture doesn't really give us any insight or answers in this regard.
How would we react in a survival situation? Most of us of utterly oblivious of the answers to such (rhetorical) questions but instinctively feel a need to find clarity about such matters nonetheless.


We (humans) are not some kind of cerebral automatons, beings bereft of emotion, let alone of instinct; we feel, we panic at times, and it's all us, it's all about the human condition.
We do well to allow ourselves to experience such conditions periodically; it helps bring the whole of being human into perspective. Yes, we can be rational and cerebrally superior to other species [sic], but we are also emotional, instinctual and even [at times...] spiritual beings. It's all a part of what it means to be human.
But this forum is mostly about surviving hard times and that is largely about being / getting in sync with our instinctual nature [and one might argue that if one is already a 'prepper', that one is already more mature than most in this regard].

Our brain is made up of a logical part [neo cortex], emotional part [limbic system], an instinctual part [the reptilian brain or brain stem] and a 'whole' that may transcend it all... [the spiritual].
It is, however, crazy to see the brain as some kind of limiting vehicle that's in our way; our various aspects may seem confusing to those ignorant of what research has shown us to be the case, but our entire body, including all aspects of our brain, evolved to help us survive. And neither our logic, our emotions, our instinct nor our spirituality are opposed to survival. Much as fundamentalists, fatalists or any kind of ignorant folks would have us believe.

Matt. 6:33: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you; i think that's about learning about and accepting what it means to be human.
I think it's about being (or becoming) intelligent [as a person or culture] about ourselves, intimates and others [including all lifeforms], i.e. about being responsible toward the quality of life (and survival) of all beings, of those in our care and whom we (especially) love and of ourselves.

This takes study, reflection, knowledge, cerebral health and acceptance. I think this is the main source of survival instinct and that all else flows from it.

Survival Shelter and Location Ideas / Re: Maps
« Last post by R.R. Book on November 19, 2017, 05:14:53 PM »
The fault itself could only be considered visible in that there is an obvious steep decline from the Honey Brook Massif, which is the geological name for the Baron's Hills.  A massif is a mountain that stands on its own, apart from another system, and moves alone as an unbreakable unit during seismic activity.  The fault lies at the bottom of the massif on the northwest corner where it adjoins the eastern Appalachians via a valley of Amish folk.  For their sake, I hope that the fault remains stable - the stability of abutting bedrock to the north of the massif could help to hold the area together.  Oddly, the only geographer to note that fault was a Frenchman who wrote about it in French, and thanks to the Internet it has been translated.  None of the state college geographers have ever mentioned it.

Floodwaters would be expected to accumulate below us to the south and east, where the Piedmont Upland eventually becomes coastal plain and tidal bore up larger rivers may occur.  Interestingly, rivers on all sides of the massif terminate in every direction near us as springs, so we have the benefit of lots of water but all running downhill away from here.

Is a centered deep fault more stable?

We have learned to keep new chickens at home for a month before allowing them to join the others foraging at the edge of the woods.  Once we had a young hen leave home for three months and then return - we had allowed her to forage right away and she was confused about where home was still, plus hens need to be kept together for the first few days when a newcomer arrives, because the pecking order has to be re-established each time the flock changes, and there is no way of circumventing that ritual. :)

Good to know about chicken poop and its decontaminating qualities.  There are some (not many) who are said to feed their chickens from the wild, as they gather hickory nuts, walnuts, etc.  Re the nuts, all you have to do is crack them open, and let the birds do the rest.  If you find a breed that is known to be a good forager, you'll have better luck than if you look for one of those birds who are known for their large size.

I remember Harvey Ussery mentioned this in his book BackYard Poultry or similar name.  He doesn't give instructions on how to do so, but knows there are some who do, and of course they say the birds are leaner, but they do lay eggs and do provide meat, but in smaller quantities than the bigger birds.

It makes a lot of sense to at least try.  One woman who posted about this on the WAPFarmers yahoo email list said that when she gets a new chicken, she just puts it in with the others who have to free-range and she said they learn that they have to get their own food, and do.  Sometimes she has them at the edge of some woods where there's cover, plus more variety of foods, but cannot recall about predator control.  Could be a dog, or llama, or ??

Sounds like a really good reference... yes for sure people should be thinking about bringing chickens along on their bug out...
