    Ok well I have been driving past this house with A TON of bantams all over their yard..... [​IMG]

    So I drove past it today on the way to work and see a sign "CHICKEN SALE" I have nothing to do tomorrow (being saturday) so I thought maybe I would go check it out....

    Do you think I should? I havent actually gotten close enough to see if the chickens were in good health all I could see were that they were bantams. Should I not go in case of disceases?? Anyone have any reasons why not? Or what to look for?? [​IMG]

    Just the usual cautions. Be ready to sanatize your shoes and clothes before you go near your own flock. And if you're tempted into buying...... 30 days quarrantine!
