    [​IMG] - I've seen some whopper bills in my days at work, but wow! The various "fees" that you can find in breaking down a bill can be an eye opener to what a racket the whole thing is. When certain rates are limited by the regulatory boards they have to find a way to generate revenue by creating all sorts of extra charges and fees - most people never really think about/notice them.

    The chickens can keep you warm, lol! The swap pages have exploded, haven't they? I think I'm going to venture out on a farm store tour this weekend to see if I can come up with enough to fill my current wish list - not looking for a lot numbers wise, but have a short list of breeds and not sure I'll have much luck locating them without multiple stops, would prefer to get it all going and just run one set through the brooder and be done, but we all know what happens to those plans, lol.

    There's a feed store nearby, the guy pays $1.25 for any chicks, and $2 for full breed. He had silver AND gold sebrights for $3 the last time I was there. So if I can't thin down on my own, he's always an option. I haven't been to a swap yet, but the bst sites seem to be moving pretty quickly. I'm paying $4 each for the polish, and her price list was published months ago.
