    Because i was stupid enough to look around the other cities in alabama and georgia and found two different sets of geese for sale - 5 for $75 and another person with 3 for $25 each.
    And I found other people with ducks but guess WHAT??!?!??!?


    THEY ARE ALL TOO FAR AWAY!!

    bought 4 hens

    1 died within 12 hours

    2 months later the other 3 started crowing


    I must've had (SUCKER) printed on my forehead


    what did I do????????????????????? nothing.....................

    karma has a way of dealing with people like that

    You scared me there. I thought it was going to be something really bad. We LOVE craigslist in this family. On Thursday I lost more than half my flock to a loose dog and yesterday I was able to go on craigslist and get 9 more chickens just like that. Not that the new ones will replace in my heart my 2 favs, but at least it's a start.

    I would so be there with my station wagon ready to take a day trip with you.
