    Went to Orschelns to get some sandpaper so my hubby can finish the buttstock of his shotgun. Shouldnt have done that!!!!! I heard peeping and quacking from near the checl out. THey had two ducklings(runner and a pekin?) , some bantams , sex links and RIRs. Too bad that we cant have anything yet, just another year or two, unless the Army deceides to retire my huband early out of health reasons. Oh BTW they came from Estes and they get geese and turkys prob. next week or so. (junction City kansas store)

    THe only thing that keeps me from buying is the pesky fact that you can have three horse sized great danes in housing , but they throw a fit when you have three bantam chickens. go figure [​IMG] i rather have chickens as neighbors than horsie dogs(thats what my kids call them)

    you would also live without your wolf hybrids and ferrets. THey are illegal too. I caught two last year on my street alone,ferrets that is. Stupid rules....

    I went to TSC to pick up some shavings and they had the bins all out and prepared for the chick shipment. Luckily nothing was there yet, talk about dodging a bullet. I am prepared to stay far away from TSC, cannot not look in those bins.

    I got the email flier for the upcoming "chick days". Be warned- one of thier "featured breeds" are "americaunas", with an obvious picture of an Easter Egger.

    I wrote to tell them they are EEs, and to please correct thier ad, but haven't head back. Like we need help confusing even more people out there! [​IMG]
