New Trend For Egg Enthusiasts Is Renting Chickens!


(PCM) Egg lovers and enthusiasts are beginning to pick up on the latest trend which is actually renting chickens to produce their own collection of eggs. Yes, this is actually a thing!

Due to the skyrocketing price of eggs in recent months because of the avian flu, and more and more restaurants opting to stop serving eggs due to financial hardship, egg lovers are taking matters into their own hands and opting to rent a pair of hens.

For the price of $400 for four months companies such as Rent The Chicken will deliver two hens, a coop, food/water dish and of course, 100 pounds of chicken feed. For an extra $200 dollars they will even upgrade your coop and give you an extra two hens!

Two chickens will produce about a dozen eggs per week, so this is still a bit of a pricey option, as it would end up averaging out to about $21 for a dozen eggs, where as the grocery store is still selling them for less than $3.00, but at least you know where the eggs are coming from which is a growing demand from egg lovers. It is said that homegrown eggs are richer and tastier than their store-brought counterparts.

Rent The Chicken is currently available in 10 states and the demand continues to grow!  Guess you could always use them to determine the age old question of which came first, the chicken or the egg if nothing else! 

You can also purchase your own chicken. They come in a variety of colors and have very distinct personality types. They are said to do well with both cats and dogs and are quite happy living in your backyard, so long as it is legal in your state.

Famous Canine Actor Uggie Dead After Battle With A Prostate Tumor


(PCM) Hollywood is mourning the death of on of their most beloved canine actors. 13-year old Jack Russell terrier Uggie has sadly passed away after a battle with a prostate tumor. Uggie’s illustrious Hollywood career included award-winning acting roles and even a published memoir.

Uggie’s most famous roles include a large appearance in the 2011 award-winning film “The Artist”, as well as additional memorable roles in film such as “Water For Elephants” and “The Campaign”. Uggie’s performance in “The Artist” won him a Golden Collar Award and the Cannes Film Festival’s Palm Dog Award. Those are considered the world’s top honors for canine actors in the industry. Uggie was also video game company Nintendo’s first-ever spokesdog during their promotion of the popular Nintendo DS game “Nintendogs & Cats”.

Uggie’s memoir titled “My Story” was published in 2012 after Uggie retired from acting. Imprints of his paws are in the iconic cement outside Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. According to his Wikipedia page “Uggie was rejected by at least his first two owners as being too wild. He was about to be sent to a dog pound, but was adopted by animal trainer Omar Von Muller after his friends alerted him to the dog. Von Muller intended only to foster the dog while he found him a new home, but decided that Uggie should stay. He said of the dog, “He was a crazy, very energetic puppy, and who knows what would have happened to him if he [had] gone to the dog pound. But he was very smart and very willing to work. One of the most important thing is that he was not afraid of things. That is what makes or breaks a dog in the movies, whether they are afraid of lights, and noises and being on sets. He gets rewards, like sausages, to encourage him to perform, but that is only a part of it. He works hard.” When not working, Uggie lived in North Hollywood with Von Muller, Von Muller’s wife and Von Muller’s 6-year-old daughter. There are six other dogs in the household, all of whom work in the film industry.

Our sincere condolences go out to Uggie’s family.

Fluffy Bunny Japanese Sea Slugs Are Just Begging To Be Cuddled


(PCM) People all over the world are going bonkers over the adorable fluffy-looking Japanese sea slugs appropriately named Jorunna parva, or fluffy bunny of the sea. After looking at these cute little guys you can’t help but want to just scoop them up and give them some cuddles. 

The Jorunna parva are part of the nudibranch group and can be found in areas of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Their tiny “bunny” ears are actually taste and scent receptors that help the sea slug determine if chemicals are present in the water in their surrounding area. 

Seriously, these little creatures are cuteness overload!  They have recently taken the internet by storm with people sharing images of the “sea bunnies” all over social media. Whoever thought a slug could be considered adorable?

The Title Of “World’s Ugliest Dog” Goes To A Mutt Named Quasi Modo


(PCM) Each year the California State Fair holds a contest to discover the “World’s Ugliest Dog” and this year a mixed breed named Quasi Modo has snatched up the honor. Quasi Modo is a 10-year old pit bull/Dutch shepherd mix who suffers from a series of birth defects that make him resemble a hunch-back (hence his name). 

Quasi Modo has no real neck of sorts and his head and legs are too large for the rest of his body. In addition to the title of “World’s Ugliest Dog”, Quasi Modo’s owner also received about the $1,500 grand prize money. 

There are some that take issue with the “World’s Ugliest Dog” competition saying that it is in poor taste, however the creates claim that they are attempting to celebrate the dog’s deformities and imperfections rather than ridicule them. 

Quasi Modo’s official contest bio reads: “My appearance can be a little unsettling to some (I’ve had grown men jump on top of their cars to get away from me because they thought I was a hyena or a Tasmanian devil) but once they get to know me, I win them over with my bubbly personality.”

The overall competition consisted mostly of hairless mixed breed Chihuahua’s and silly-looking Bulldogs and Pugs, who all placed behind Quasi Modo in this year’s competition. The “World’s Ugliest Dog” competition stands behind their motto of never judging a book by its’ cover and that is is okay to be different.

Handsome Gorilla Gets Japanese Zoo-Goers Hot And Bothered


(PCM) Shabani, an 18-year old gorilla who resides at the Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Nagoya, Japan, is creating quite a stir with zoo-goers, particularly the female visitors, who have deemed him to be “too handsome”.

Many zoo-goers have taken to social media after visiting Shabani to comment on his appearance calling him a “good-looking man”. A zoo spokesperson says that Shabani’s sudden popularity has been unexpected and he has now gathered close to about 100 human, mostly female, visitors per day. He is currently at his peak physically and is a bit more buff than his contemporaries. 

However, lady fans of this chiseled fellow shouldn’t get their hopes to high, as he already has two gorilla wives within his own species, Ai and Nene. He is also the father of two little gorilla babies Kiyomasi and Annie.


The zoo spokesperson goes on to say that it seems like Shabani has begun to notice his sudden popularity, but definitely continues to keep it cool with the same brooding expression on his face that makes the women continue to go ape … !
