    Sumi beat me to it - I was also going to mention the Canadian thread.

    One of my favorite threads on BYC is ""Jest Another Day in Pear A Dice," authored by a great lady in Canada. I think you'd enjoy it. She often speaks of the weather extremes and has a style of writing(talking) that keeps her followers well entertained. She has llamas, geese, ducks, chickens, hair sheep, black swans etc. and two real characters - her Australian cattle dogs Lacey and Emmy.

    Thank you ALL for the extra tips...I am enjoying my quest on BYC
    It's a bit mind boggling how many members & past posts there is.
    Great FUN exploring the "coops" & of course chick / chicken info.
    Luv it here already!!!!
