    [quote name="Mish" url="/t/697050/michigan-thread-all-are-... Don't really want to haul birds unless I know I won't be returning home with them.
    ...I should add myself to the attendance list....[/quote]

    No kidding about hauling birds around!

    It is looking like I will be able to come, as long as nothing unforseeable pops up. I can bring homemade bread for sandwiches and egg salad, a jello desert ...Or if something else is needed/wanted, other than RaZ's lobster :) (not that I wouldn't love lobster!)... Just let me know.

    I am sorry for the stupid question, but what is chicken stock and where is it?
    I am about 6 weeks into chicken owning :)
    I live in Michigan. Part time in GR area and part time "up north" in Baldwin area near PM river.
    The BYC group has had the best info and greatest people I have come across!

    It's when all us crazy chicken people on here........ gather in one spot.......... and have a good time! Kinda like a family reunion....... and I believe it gets bigger every year. It's free to attend, though we do ask for a donation to help pay for the pavilion rental and some of the food cost for meat. And a dish to pass if you plan on eating some great food with the rest of us. There are links that I will add shortly.

    Quote: bring em....... much harder to resist when people see them in person.... (there is one lady that shows up that will take anything/everything if she can get on the cheap, though I speculate that they'll end up dinner).

    I got my garden planted!! [​IMG] Not an easy job since I had to wait until our new puppy finally took a nap! Having lots of fun with Otis.

    Have a mystery.. found a huge puddle of blood in my garage. Some under the camper and a few drops here and there, front and back yard. No bodies of any kind. Ran around looking for all my chickens and found no one injured, or dead. Had to be dead with all that blood. Waited until everyone was roosted and saw no one missing or injured. Everyone alive this morning. So.... where did all that blood come from?? Looked around for an injured animal or dead one, but can't find one. It's just creepy. Garage door was open, so anything could have come in. Just creepy. Both my cats are safe, too. Bunnies are ok. Hmmmm...just creepy.

    Rent? I counter-offer with live-in care taker. Just a room big enough for me and the dogs and cats. Of course, I'd need a separate pole barn for my stuff. [​IMG]

    MAEAP is currently a voluntary certification now, but with a governor mandate of 5000 farms by 2014 it could become something else entirely down the road. In any case it is a set of good sound practices for protecting our environment. That is a big reason that I am working for it.
