    Thanks for the feed store suggestions! urbanfarmboi, those mini-reviews look really useful.

    I'm at the south end of the Peninsula.

    Hi Steffanie,

    OK, I checked out your BYC page again and nothing has changed...1005 visits? I should talk, my page has absolutely nothing so far [​IMG]

    I challenge you to a BYC page update, we begin on March 1st, OK? Completed pages are due by the Ides of March.

    Hmm, was going to post pics of my chick-chicks and their coop, but I am still trying to figure all this out. I guess I need to upload my pics to a photo service. I will keep at it. Check back.

    We live in Reno and we left because my DH got a great job offer. Turns out the great job wasn't so great and we don't really fit in well here. I mean the people in Reno are very sweet but I can tell they think we are a little too different. Are we Bay Area'ns that different? I've heard comments like this from other folks that have never lived in the Bay Area. We are definitely more liberal than most folks in this area but suspect it's more than that. We have had to travel to many parts of the U.S. on business and never felt out of place before but maybe it's different when you move in! [​IMG]
    We would love to come back if DH can find a job that pays enough and fits his experience and education. Most of our family still lives there including 2 of our 3 grandchildren. 'Til then I'm just gonna live vicariously through you all. [​IMG]

    Quote:It is a people party (pot-luck) where everyone comes to talk about our chickens, families, chicken coops and runs, homes and yards, etc.

    Is Chickenstock a play on words?

    Very fun,
