Hiya. I posted this in the "egg laying" section, too. I'm a long-time chicken enthusiast, now writing an article (due Monday!) about the issue of geriatric backyard chickens. I am looking for quotes from people who have kept elderly chickens, preferably in Portland. I'd love to have longer conversations with folks, and more interesting quotes come out verbally than in print, so please call me or give me numbers so I can call you. My number is 503.238.1799. Thanks!
