    They closed the thread. I got an e-mail back saying they were developing a new breed. Mad Hatter chickens. They wanted you to take the chicks and raise them. Then they would come and take what they wanted for further breeding. You needed to live near their farm. It was a pretty extensive gig. Not one I'd be interested in. Still you have to be careful of these things. Remember "there is no such thing as a free chicken/lunch"[​IMG].

    Someone just gave me some silkies today. It's not true that you cant get free birds but I would say that the guys your speaking of sound very fishy.

    I'm happy for you sweetie, but the cost is in the feeding and care, so they aint' free. You don't know anyone who has some Blue Frizzles to give away do you? [​IMG]
