I forgot to mention that I also didn't get a pic with pbirdhaven, but was lucky to meet her briefly before she had to leave. : - ) jchny~ love your description of your new roo "making acquaintances"! I remember feeling so sad when relocating a cockerel to a farm, but when I let him out of the cat carrier and he saw all the lovely ladies in the barnyard, he thought he hit the motherload! haha I didn't feel so sad on the way home. P.S. Thank YOU for the idea of a get-together and all of your behind-the-scenes work with Patrick and crew.
