I'm not exactly new as I've been on and off the site for years but I did recently come back, maybe s couple months ago, and I was talking to someone in MA today and I realized... I've never really talked to anyone in Massachusetts. I've talked a lot of people but really none locally and it's always nice to talk to local people SO here I am hahah
A lot of this is in my signature but if you're like me and on mobile, the signatures don't show, soooooo....
I'm Kelsey and from Eastern Massachusetts. We're in a town but we have almost 3 acres. I recently got chickens and they're currently 7 weeks old, turning 8 weeks on Monday. They came from Meyer Hatchery in Ohio, hatch date October 26th. They got here next day. I added a free one so there were originally 9 but one died very early on so we now have 8. I have 1 Barred Rock, 2 Black Australorps, 3 Buff Orpingtons, and 2 Easter Eggers. I ordered all females and so far it looks like they all are.
Also have a dog and a cat. The dog is half Black Lab, half Great Pyrenees and 3 1/2 years old. He will be 4 in March. He came from a small family farm type thing in Western Mass. I actually found him on the eBay Classifieds hahah his name's Gator but we call him Cuddles a lot.
The cat just came from a local pet store. She's tiny but long hair, rather adorable. She's my cat. She turned 5 in August. Her name's Luna.
Anyway, that's me and I'd just like to possibly meet other Massachusetts people.
Also, has anyone been to Morrisons in Plymouth? Think it's technically an agway? Or the TSC? Wondering about the feed. They're on the Agway stuff, just switched off the medicated, but when they get to laying age I'd like to switch to something else and I'm just curious what out of the feed you guys use.
