    I am so sorry, I understand your pain.
    Best of luck finding another job, before you have to sell all your animals!

    How did that happen? Downsizing? I hate that when it happens!

    Go to unemployment office ASAP and then you can look for a job while you have some cash. It's hell on everyone that just lost their job.....the shock of it was the worse of it.

    I know this is not exactly what you want to hear, but I commend you for finding them new homes! So many folks can't afford to take care of their animals and let them go in the wild, or let them starve. I know you wouldn't do that

    The bright side is that getting into chickens and critters again after things start to look up should be pretty easy considering all of the enablers you have here on BYC. [​IMG]

    as is I havent been able to cash my checks for two weeks.The company I have been working for is not doing good. I was hes only employ . He did sells while I did everything else from office manger, to packing and shipping.Just borrowed money for feed this weekend. $100 a week Sighh. I love my animals and most are rescues. But most are my show birds also. That I spent lots of money on. I hate to know what kind of home they go to if I get rid of them.
  10. get the birds up here and i will lavish them with a life of luxery! [​IMG] until you can take them back of course, not that i would keep them or anything.. um, not like i am a chicken hoarder or anything......

    seriously though, you may be able to find a few locals to you to help you out on here.
