I'll shoot you a PM. I know someone who works for the extension in Adams county. She did recently tell me that the extension system has been reorganized so that extension staff members are more able to specialize in their areas of expertise. That does mean that the 'poultry expert' might be in the Lancaster office, but anyone in the state can use their services. Since so much information dissemination happens online anymore, it makes sense.
Danke...you know men...they tend to forget what all they signed up for.

I know several are nesting near the window, they've been chasing my cats. I wonder if it was the smell from the feed or if it was the chirping from the chicks. Hmmm
My garage/chicken coop is the weirdest design...ok everything on this property is...but anyway...there is a woodstove in the garage. The previous owner knocked a block out so the chimney could go out...I swear it shouldn't be big enough for a bird to get through...but every once in awhile, I'll go out to find a bird in the garge...flying around in the rafters....stupid things.
I see you've had a conversation with my grandmother!

We just picked up our last chicks from the feed store today and they're so small they walk right through the older chick's legs. I've nicknamed them the Cotton Balls. Two little silver-laced wyandottes.
Pics or it didn't happen.
