I was wondering if anyone in Virginia has registered with the Virginia Dept. of Agriculture and Consumer Services? When my chicks got sick right after I got them I was working with a vet from the USDA in Richmond. She e-mailed me yesterday to check on the chicks and asked if I had registered with the Dept. of Agriculture yet. I read that it is voluntary, but am a little unclear as to what this does for or to me. Is this a good thing or should I steer clear of it?I don't really care to have health inspectors visiting my home all of the time and I certainly don't need anymore on my to-do-list than is already there! Thanks!
