    My neighbors fixed my coop after a wind storm... I want to repay their kindness........

    My neighbor (whos is a master craftsman and gets $50 per hour) ... I called them after a huge windstorm.... My coop "blew over" and lots of chickens were running all around. He , his wife and son cam running over to catch chickens, and rebuild the coop.... he did not ask for one penny. [​IMG] My husband was laid off at the time (BUT HE JUST GOT A JOB YESTERDAY!!) [​IMG]

    I ask Greg my neighbor "how can I ever repay you" he said... "I guess just keep those fresh eggs :celebratecoming my way once in while" [​IMG]: bow [​IMG] [​IMG]

    WOW what a neighbor. [​IMG] I now have chickens to sell for extra money and I want to pay my neighbor SOMETHING

    We are raising large cornish cross..... I was thinking of giving them about 10 large (9-12 lb!) frozen chickens for Christmas!

    This is all we can do to say thanks. Is this good? and arent we lucky to have such nice neighbors! [​IMG]

    Wow, you are lucky to have them as neighbors and I think the frozen chicken idea is a great one. Stay on their good side, you never know when you'll need a bigger coop! lol
    and a huge CONGRATULATIONS to your hubby on the new job.
    Way to go!!!

    My next door neighbor has helped me out numerous times with my mower. I don't have much to offer, but do give them fresh eggs whenever I can. I think it's more about the sentiment behind the gesture or gift. I think the fresh chickens is an awesome way to show your gratitude.

    Chickens are a nice gesture. But, don't forget that he did tell you that he would enjoy fresh eggs ... I'd keep the fresh eggs going for a while.

    I know if I helped out someone I would love to have some home made goodies at Christmas time. [​IMG] That's from the heart and means more to me than anything.

    Giving them 10 chickens is very generous of you and I'm sure they would appreciate it!! [​IMG]

    That is cool...I am with the rest...something baked and from the heart means way more than money to me. My dad recently passed (last week) and a friend gave me a dozen of cinnamon rolls...way better than flowers...plus she hugged me!! Gotta love 92 year old hugs!!!
