    Great news, chicken peeps! The ordinance to allow backyard chickens in unincoorporated areas of Pinellas county passed last night! To celebrate, I am organizing a swap with Lisa, who spearheaded the movement. Some of you may have met her at my first swap. She was the one that brought the petition, and a group of 4H kids. We are looking at January 7th or 28th. Any preference for those of you that are interested in coming? We shoild have an oportunity to plug it on the news this week, and we should have a whole new group of potential chicken buyers!

    I don't think the 7th is a good day at all, there's a Poultry show in Lake city and a lot of us will be there, you should come too.

    But I can do the 28th God willing

    Oh, I had already eliminated the 7th right after I wrote that and then checked the swap thread. Need to do that in reverse order next time. It will be the 28th, so this is your "save the date" notice. It will be held at A) The Pinellas County extension office parking lot; B) An empty lot downtown (a chicken swap in downtown St.Pete [​IMG]); or C) My backyard. So mark your calendars and check the Florida swap thread for details next week. [​IMG]

    Anyone know someone who needs a companion dog? He's not chicken proof. We're working on him and he's getting used to them but I won't have him off leash around them. I picked him up playing in traffic on a busy road thinking for sure he'd escaped from someone. He even smelled freshly bathed! But no one has claimed him. He's housebroken. Still a puppy but I don't know how old. 8-9 months maybe? Very calm. I have three indoor cats that he tries to play with but he's not aggressive towards them, just rough. He isn't aggressive towards my three little dogs, although they're aggressive to him, frequently launching themselves snarling and snapping at his throat. He seems oblivious that they don't want to play. He's not food aggressive, is very relaxed about having his mouth, feet, belly, ears messed with. Knows how to sit and walks fairly well on a leash. He is an indoor dog only. He loves to sleep on the furniture. He's such a great dog he deserves a great home.

    Thanks LisaAnn, I see you have a mix of critters too. Mine is slightly different with 7 Bassetts, a rescued Walker Hound, rescued Blue Point Cat, 2 MacCaws, 3 Cockatiels, 4 chickens, a Duck, and whatever else we end up serving as foster parents for from the vet and Humane Society. I'm spending my "vacation time" building a duck park and swimming pool. It's what grammie wanted for Christmas, so that works for me!

    Well that seems to me like a great way to spend your vacation time! You have a very lucky duck.

    We love all our critters too, whether they're pedigreed or not, orphaned, or brought to us injured...each has their own distinct personality to help keep things interesting at our house.
