OMG Finally caught up!! Almost 200 postings to read through. Spent the weekend at MOA for my DD12s Juvenille Diabetes Research Foundation walk....good times.
MLH: Have you lived in Cali? Where? ( lived out there for 18 yrs) And I thought all shelters required spay/neuter before adoption?
Congrats on all the new cute chicks!!! Its starting to feel like June 4th (When my chicks ship) is wayyyyyy along way off :-(
On FB-MPC site, there was an article about a farm in Cali that left est. 50,000 chickens without food for 2 wks....they are looking for foster homes. It states that a third were dead when they got there and the majority of the remaining are being put down. It was an egg production site for A & L Poultry. That is really sickening, http://www.modbee.com/2012/02/22/2081184/thousands-of-hens-dead-at-stanislaus.html
My hen aprons arrived and I waited until today to put them on so I would be around....the poor girls!!! The boys chased them like they were invaders, the girls would catch it out of the corner of their eye....and take off running...kept trying to pull them off and they would get all crooked.....wind would blow them up almost over their heads etc.....not sure what I think about these right now.
