I am very sad. I miss my chickens and my everyday egg gathering. I miss feeding my girls table scraps and treats. I miss how they come running when i call and gather around talking. i miss watching them take dust baths and chase eachother around the yard. I even miss finding them in my kitchen after one of the kiddos leaves the back door open! We had to move to a condo and i had to sell my girls. It has been three days and I do not like that i can't hear their egg song or their constant bantor outside my windows. I was at the feed store yesterday for my dog and there was this man who was standing by the cicken feed looking really confused. I asked if he needed some help and the i saw the relief on his face when he exclaimed YES PLEASE! I remember how "knowledable" feed store employees had helped me so i was really excited to pass on my knowledge. I spent the next 1/2 hour going over everything with him from food and bedding to the beauty of DE and the importance of grit and oyster shell. He left with a cart full and a lot of knowledge as well as the BYC website in his pocket for future reference. I will also miss BYC! You have all been such a help through illness, through egg questions, and random ponderings about chickens, recipies, and much, much more! Thank you all so much! I will miss you all so much. I was hoping i could stop in every now and then and say hi or see how everyone's girls are doing. again thank you so much for everything.
