Hey, everyone. I just joined BYC yesterday, and even though we've been keeping chickens for a few years now, they finally generated some actual income (though $ has never really been the purpose of keeping them). Just outa' the blue today! We had a cable installer here and he happened to see our little foragers (he was surrounded by like 20+ birds) and asked if we would be willing to sell some! For over three years we've had chickens & nobody has asked if they could buy some! As a person who takes coincidences & turns them into superstitions...I just can't help feeling like some of the good BYC mojo rubbed off on me while I was here yesterday ~:> So, I decided I had better post on the new member intro page to keep the good energy flowing. I'm just amazed at how productive I feel, somebody who knows what they're doing in the world of chicken, after all...I'm sure an amateur wouldn't be able to make $50 on a chicken sale ....wait a minute, I forgot to account for the feed, and oyster shell, and treats/scraps, and all of that time & energy! .....calculating....@?$#....okay, so as it turns out, I actually paid them to take my chickens off my hands... guess that's why you guys say I'm a newbie But hey, I won't argue that, I never claimed to know what I was doing in the chicken world I learn somethin' new everyday...today's lesson was "Chicken Math." Naw, Scratch that. ...Today's lesson was, "How to Convince Hubby That There Actually IS Plenty of Space to Fire Up the Incubator for Just One More Hatch"
