    Hello to all. I am new to the Backyard Chickens site, and sort of stumbled onto this thread. Was surprised to see a goodly number of folks from Louisiana. I am in rural north central Louisiana...Winn parish. I have had backyard layers off and on for years, but now I am just getting started with a couple of less common breeds (Penedesencas and Faverolles), as well as an olive egger project (Ameraucanas over Marans/Penedesencas). Glad to meet yall [​IMG]

    I have been trying to hire a high school kid or young teenager to work at my place on the weekend cleaning coops, chicken houses, waterers, feeders, etc but I don't think kids want to work anymore or maybe the job is too hard. :/

    "Don't want to work" is the operative phrase. My boss tried to hire her nephews to come rake & clean out the gutters here at the office - they lasted about an hour & then decided it was "too hard"!
