When buying a bird bath, make sure that it's only 2 inches deep in the center of the bowl. This is to prevent young birds from drowning.

1/4 c. butter

1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. paprika

1/4 tsp pepper

2 1/2-3 pound cut up chicken (chicken fryer)

Heat oven to 425 degrees. In a 13x9x2 inches rectangular pan heat up butter until melted. Mix flour, salt, paprika and pepper. Coat chicken w/ flour mixture. Place skin sides down in pan. Bake 30 minutes uncovered. Turn chicken and bake 30 minutes longer. 6 servings

Hummingbird: food recipe

Bring 4 cups water to a boil and stir in 1 cup sugar. Stir to dissolve about 1 - 2 minutes. When cool, pour into the a pitcher or an old pop liter bottle and refrigerate until needed. You do not need to add food coloring. When the weather gets hot (80's and 90's) don't let the food set in the feeders for more than a couple of days. You'll make the birds sick.
