    Well, it's a little late, but [​IMG] anyway. I went back and read some of your older posts. Did that 'rooster' you wondered about start laying yet? You said eggs for the neighbors; are you getting eggs? I'm still waiting for some of this spring's chicks to start; some have.
    I think I read somewhere that here is a meetup/get-together in your --oh, shoot, maybe that was Western Mass. Oh, wait, I know! Someone's not able to come to a CT Peeps get-Together 'cause they'll be at a Boston Poultry Show this weekend.
    (Maybe I've been reading too much on here. As it says on the opening page: very addictive forum)

    THere are 3 or 4 threads with Mass chicken enthusiasts. Just don't want you to feel lonely. Welcome to the world of chickens.

    I am way, way west of Boston, near the Connecticut line, but it's my first year with chickens too. And my neighbors are also enjoying fresh eggs. I have learned a remarkable amount on here, so you most likely will too. Good luck with your flock, and keep an eye out for other Mass threads. There seem to be quite a few people on this side of Boston.

    Does BOston even allow chickens??

    I'm south of Worcester, lots of people but still more land than people. [​IMG]

    I haven't had any complaints about the crowing yet. Most of the houses around here are double income families so no-one is around to hear them!!!

    Yup - came home from being away this weekend and found two beautiful pinkish eggs:

    Had to be my "rooster" - lol! And I guess we need a few more before the neighbors get any - [​IMG]
