Not a dumb question
At a chickenstock people can buy, sell, and trade birds/items no fee for selling or anything. We would also have good food, and you get to meet other chicken people
it's also a good place to ask questions because you're face to face, rather than on the computer. Anything else just ask!!

I think that's a good idea! I was the one who inflicted the noisy blue cochin on you last year!

My friend Bann was also there with her kids, and I know that she wants to hatch out some chicks for that very purpose. She's not able to have chickens at the moment, but she loved hatching the little ones out with her kids.

I believe Sarah who hosted us last year has moved, so I think your place sounds great. And it's always fun for us city folk to get some real farm time. I'll see if I can't round up a few more people this year.

I should have some Olive Eggers and Marans to get rid of sometime this spring too.

I'll just request that it not be May 15, because I'm busy, and I want to come!

memal, I've only been to one chickenstock, and it was pretty much a pot luck picnic sort of occasion, and we all brought any extra chicks or birds we were looking to sell, or give away, or trade. Moreover it's just fun to surround yourself with a bunch of other crazy chicken people who like to talk about chickens more than anything else.

Count me in,
Bailey
