    Last month? I wish I heard about these more often. My flock has taken a lot of loses this winter from predators and I really need to get the numbers back up

    I think an opie got one but most were gotten by a neighbors dog who refuses to put their dog down after killing 10 of my chickens over a period of 3 weeks. It makes me so mad!! [​IMG]

    What time is the swap in Sanford? I've never been to one, and would like to check one out, but with gas prices the way they are, it would also depend on how far it is from me- I know Fayetteville is out of the question though!
