    How eggciting!!!

    The story came out in the print version (July 12) that arrived in our mailbox.

    Unfortunately the whole article isn't online:

    OH NO!!! The article uses the BYC domain name WITHOUT the "s" UGH!!!!

    Oh well... hopefully peeps will still be able to fine their way here.

    My favorite part of the article: "Welcome to the Northeast Regional Chickenstock in New Tripoli, PA., where members of BYC - a sort of Facebook for chicken owners- have come to trade eggs and buy chicks."

    Can't wait to see whole article.
    From the pictures:
    "Gretchen Bare, right, an artist from Hollywood, Md., who specializes in breeding Polish and silkie roosters."

    Gretchen breeds roosters. LOL That must be quite a job, getting the roosters to breed.
    So what do you do with all the extra pullets Gretchen? I'll take them [​IMG]
