You have giving me a great start!

Also, 4, I just love the cuddly lovable buggers! They will add to my African Stucatta Turtle and worm composting!!! This will be my second year backyard farming in Milwaukee! Our Neighbors really support our venture at bring simplicity to the neighborhood!
Who is this: Keedokes and is PM is messaging them on the rules?
Can we call you TaH?
Just so you know, chickens can cause more damage to your garden than the bugs. They love to eat your plants, just so you know.
Poop will definitely help your compost.
Once you eat your first home grown chicken eggs, you'll never go back to store-bought. Honest!
PMing is Personal Messaging, and yes, it is allowed on BYC and is very easy to do.
Go to "new messages" towards the top to the right of the search box & click on it. In the box for who to send it to, type Keedokes. Tell her you were directed to her by the WI Cheeseheads & ask her about the Milw. chicken keeping rules. She will be able to direct you to the information about it. She fought to get the ordinance passed. And she is super sweet. Good luck!
I'm only going down for a few days. DH can't handle all of this up here by himself. I'm coming down probably late Thursday afternoon. Can't drive with the stock trailer at night since it doesn't have running lights. It does have the break and blinker lights though.
I'm hoping I can bring home my garden tractor if I can get my Brother to load it up for me.
Cause I have this wonderful friend named JVLS 1942 that offered to fix it for me !!! Right Jim ??? Then when I drop it off I can pick up the mink cages you picked up for me ????
I don't back it up well though, especially into a driveway in the city so I may just park it on the front lawn. Citation ready to happen, in Racine !!! lol
I have a bone density test and doctor appointment on Friday, then meeting up with my Mom's relatives for dinner in Milwaukee.
My Mom's cousin (my God Mother, Aunt Bette) is also 90 yrs old and you would never know it. She is the most lovable, beautiful (inside and out) woman you would ever meet !! She is recovering from a fracture in her spine. The sad part is she is so allergic to medications she can't use pain meds or even have her mouth froze for dental work !! OUCH !!
Anyway, then of course I have to spend some time with my Auntie E at the assisted living facility.
Go to her house and help my sister a bit, That's always fun ......NOT !!
On the way home I'm picking up those sebastapol geese. Either Sun or Monday.
It's going to be a long weekend. Driving tires me out alot.
Wish I could stay longer and visit but this trip I wouldn't be able to.
