Hi MiaohMia, no we are not that far.  No you are not the only one with questionable glances. I get them a lot when I am in Meat Farms at the veggie rack that sells past prime veggies. I buy a bunch of it and say "my hens will love this". Then my students - I teach in Nassau, look at me like my head fell off when I tell them I have chickens.  They really don't know where their food comes from so I make it a teachable moment. 


I hope you are still with us.
