We are from the great country of Canada. We are located in Upper Kingsclear, NB. Well we received our chicks yesterday. 20 Meat Kings and 3 Layers. So we are having fun. Our neighbor's 13 year old daughter Jessie was down last night to see the chicks. She really enjoyed them. I did remind her that don't get too attached...in 6 to 8 weeks, the one she was holding was going to be on the BBQ. Boy did I get a dirty look. She said not this one, it was hers! We have named the layers Lois, Lindsay and Pearl. I have been lurking the forums for the past few weeks reading and learning. Looks like a great place with nice people. Everyone seems to love their layers. That's a longer term relationship. A few are a little squeamish about harvesting meat birds but it's not for everyone. There appears to great information here and great answers to everyone's questions, even the dumb ones. LOL So the pet inventory is as follows, 6 cats, 3 dogs, a dove, a cockatiel, 3 layers, 20 meat birds (just visiting), 2 boys, and a lovely wife.
