    Just cause a person can sing well, does not make one smart...

    I agree for sure. Gotta wonder.

    Hey, that'd be great if/when it worked out! I'd be thankful and would do my best to meet your price. I do have a flock limit on quantity before my little town here starts taking note on how many are running around but I'm determined to save room for cochin from Minnie and legbar if a can, creamette!

    I just remembered.. Trippell has a CL rooster for sale. Look back a few pages. This would be a mature rooster and you could get the blue egg gene into your chickens right away...

    Tripplell is where BogtownChick and I got our creamettes, so would be same stock. I am not a show person but I think my birds from her are pretty darn nice... I think she did show them but I am not sure.

    My opinion probably won't be very popular, but I disagree with commercial poultry farms. If you take away their dignity to live a life scratching in the dirt, roaming around a pasture looking for goodies to eat, with a reasonable number of birds for the size of the property, then you are just asking for compromised immune systems and problems such as this. However, I am by no means an expert. And by the way, I'm not talking about keeping breeding birds confined to a run. So don't get your feathers ruffled by some random opinion on the internet :)

    My DH's family raises confinement hogs. I think it was one of the saddest moments I can remember when his Grandfather (since passed - who was so proud of his big operation) showed me his hog barns. The smell was unbearable and the pigs were shoulder to shoulder. Of course I was too polite to ever say anything to him, but I swore that we would never do that to any animal.

    Thanks! That sounds like a better idea. We're in Saint Francis, do you have any ideas on where we could get dirt delivered from?

    St. Francis is a huge area.. Are you east or west of 47,, north or south of the town site itself. I know of a place if you are in the NW quadrant.

    Ahh.. that is a tad far, I think, for the dirt people I would use,

    The place I get that kind of stuff is between Princeton, Zimmerman and Isanti.
