    we should start a thread, and we can post the links to those particular ads?

    maybe call it "unwanted easter babies" ???

    how could we do it by state?

    we could just put the name of the state first thing on the post before the other stuff like
    GEORGIA- free chicks< see that way it would be easy pickins

    I saw an ad on Craigsist last night someone had put in to accept easter Chicks after the "oooo!" wore off - then next easter they could come and get another chick, and bring it back, etc...

    Not sure about the revolving chicks part, but putting an ad on craigslist might not be a bad idea.
