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.  

nonbinary chickens are pretty common! Reason #89574897345 why I fucking love chickens.

Transcocks!
Or Transroosters if you’re American, or want to avoid anyone thinking you mean anything smutty.

I’d like to take a moment to bring to people’s attention what is happening in Scotland right now, more specifically Glasgow. I’m not sure many of you even realise that yesterday we had the chance to vote to be an independent country, and overall, the run up to voting day was fantastic! There was such passion and positivity from both Yes and No camps, but that is now a thing of the past as since the votes have been counted and a NO vote has won 55% to 45% YES. George square has been the hub for many YES gatherings over the past few weeks, and I live in Glasgow and I’ve walked through them, and it’s been a really great atmosphere, but these pictures show what replaces that today. Within 48 hours it has gone from a scene of positivity, to complete anarchy, and the BBC has covered virtually none of it! I ask that you please be aware of the discord going on in Glasgow and Scotland right now, and if you’re in Glasgow please stay at home and be safe, this is not how it should have ended.

The BBC’s report: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-29287409 (sorry Tumblr won’t let me put a link in. It’s all a conspiracy! Anyway, here is The Guardian’s  http://gu.com/p/4xm8m.

Hi my name is Julien Marcelin Benoit Enjolras and I have long blonde hair with red streaks and red tips that reaches my mid-back and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I remind them of a young Saint-Just (AN: if u don’t know who he is get da…

There aren’t any Hot Topic stores in France.

you know how the central relationship in all action movies seems to be two tough dudes bro-ing it out? well that’s boring. here are some alternatives:

  • two tough chicks bro-ing it out
  • younger woman and older woman who develop a mother-daughter relationship. also kill people

And here are my suggestions for things that might fit:

  • two tough chicks bro-ing it out: Buffy and Faith when they were friends? Charlie’s Angels? (Actually 3 tough chicks)
  • younger woman and older woman who develop a mother-daughter relationship. also kill people - May and Skye on Marvel’s Angels of Shield could go this way
  • triplets.
  • triplet HACKERS
  • a girl, her father, and her father’s scandalously young gay lover. (all of whom are assassins)
  • younger woman and older woman who totally get it on bow chicka bow wow. also kill people - Xena and Gabrielle
  • sisters, one on a suicidal rescue mission for the other - Frozen, finale of Buffy Season 5
  • two lady-spies who try to honeypot each other - D.E.B.S.
  • a teenage girl with mysterious powers, and her two boyfriends
  • a middle-aged ex secret service couple suddenly called upon to SERVE THEIR COUNTRY
  • platonic male-female friends who kick ass together and love and depend each other. but no hetero - Harry and Hermione. Buffy and Xander.
  • lesbian mercenaries - Kennedy’s operation in the current run of Buffy comics
  • asexual husband-wife duo. they kill their enemies without mercy and cuddle in pools of their blood
  • all-women gang of international thieves. based in hong-kong - Not in Hong Kong, or the main characters, but Jay and Silent Bob Strike back?

I really want a science fiction story where aliens come to invade earth and effortlessly wipe out humanity, only to be fought off by the wildlife.

They were expecting military resistance. They weren’t counting on bears.

Literally I would read thousands of words of this. 

Or by bacteria and viruses. Oh, hang on, H.G Wells already wrote that one.

As my daughter’s school will be marking world book day, here is a playlist of songs connected to books: alphabetical by author.
