    I had an idea after hinkjc posted her thread. I would like to donate towards shipping of some eggs to a deserving someone/family if someone wants to donate the eggs. I don't have eggs to ship as my chicks are too small yet. I am always one for giving to others especially now with the economy. If there is someone that would like to donate the eggs, probably a min of 6 let me know. Then we just have to find a deserving family that could use the eggs and meat.

    You are AWESOME!!! I was just thinking how I would love to donate some of my extra eggs, but I diddnt really think we could pay to ship to many of them.

    I have Cochin eggs and cochin x partridge rock eggs.

    I can seperate them to get pure cochin eggs for anyone that wants some!

    Now, start NOMINATING a family in need! Wow, this is fun! [​IMG]

    You all are so wonderful!!! I wish I could afford to donate. [​IMG] Eggs were recently donated to me, and I am so grateful! I can't wait til my chicks start producing eggs, because I plan on just keeping enough for us and asking $1 a dozen for the rest, hope to make just enough to buy the feed.

    Anyway, to all of you that are helping others out, you are truly great people!! [​IMG]

    I would love to nominate my grandaughter Emmy. She just turned 5 and loves to help out with the chickens. I know she would love to have some of her own. [​IMG]

    I have no eggs to offer that anyone would want...just hatchery Rhode Island Reds. I can offer to donate up to 1-2 dozen if that helps.

    I nominate myself [​IMG]
    See, I have been so blessed that I now have a used-but-working cabinet incubator, and it is just begging for eggs [​IMG]
    Any breed/species/variety is welcomed at this farm!
    Two years ago, from scratch, I started a 4-H Poultry Club for my county, now there are many families involved!
    Whatever birds I do not keep will go to help these kids in their own projects [​IMG]
    And that is why I think I deserve some eggs [​IMG]


    ---------I have had a very generous donation, so no need to consider me anymore [​IMG] Thank you so much lostsoulhelpmejebus for the RIR eggs, and Addictedtochicks for helping to cover shipping!--------

    Quote:I'm sure there is someone!!! I know someone like me isn't very picky, and RIR are wonderful I think!!! They're the first chicken we ever owned! [​IMG] I can't wait until the day I have a nice laying flock started!!! [​IMG] Giving back would be great! Right now we are on a tight tight budget til my husband goes back to work, and I can't even afford shipping on eggs [​IMG] because I'm saving what little I can to build a nice big coop! Hoping to start it in a few weeks!! [​IMG]
