    Story:

    I posted in Chickens for sale my Lemon-Blue and Gold Laced cochin babies. Daughter doesn't have as much time as previously and we were going to cut back on our flock some.

    Equibling sees the post and PM's me. She posted on my local Craigslist for a "ride" for the chicks from Florida to Washington State.

    Local reporter sees ad and contacts Equibling. Equibling contacts me and I contact the reporter....who comes out with a photographer and takes a bunch of photos. Story comes out in today's paper about the "Cross Country Fowl".

    Here is the link if you are interested:
