LOL, a couple of days ago the friend who got me started in chickens sent me an email. She knows I ordered chicks with a woman we both go to church with. Then she found out I was getting 6 more in another order with someone on BYC so I could get sexed chicks in breeds I couldn't get in the other order. Then she found out I received 8 eggs that I'm attempting to hatch in my schools incubator. So she sent me this email that she is worried I don't know what I'm getting into (I've had chickens for more than 10 years). From the rest of the email I'm thinking she was stressed out about other things including one EE hen she has that is less than a year old, healthy as far as she can tell, but no longer laying. She is very stressed by having to feed this hen which is giving her nothing in return. I'm really thrown by that since this woman has had chickens longer than I have and I can't believe she's never had a hen that stopped laying in the winter. I think she was hinting that I should offer to take this hen from her but I don't have anywhere to isolate it from my own 2 hens. Don't know what she's going to do. I think she didn't like my answer to one of her other issues and I haven't heard back from her. Anyone else ever get an "I'm worried about you" message regarding chickens??
