    This morning we suffered a HUGE loss of 50% of our flock and all my ducks except 2. I have been dealing with that, animal control, shoring up the coop, etc., all day long. A little bit ago, my best friend and her daughter pull up into the driveway, and pull out two boxes. They brought me 7 chickens!!!! 3 pullets and a mama hen and her 3 babies that are 8-10 weeks old!!!

    She doesn't even GET the chicken thing. Here is a woman who has only owned dogs and cats her whole life, takes herself and her daughter out to a feed store, which I am sure she didn't even know it existed, and buys every last hen that they had.

    I am SOOO blessed.
