Hello y'all Chicken Lovin' Folk! Ok, I'm not one to spend much time on this Puter thang! It's NOT my social life! But like any other tool it certainly has its perks. But a heads up on North Carolina for Back Yard Chicken owners, in some counties I'm hearing that the FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION is nosin round our back yards, bringing us all within their, "Political Correctness" pigeon hole. Personally, I think that they're trying to use this hogwash as another CONTROL over us all. Stupidity is incurable but Ignorance is cured by becoming educated and informed. So I don't have all the right answers because I may not even know the right QUESTIONS! As a community of Back Yard Chicken Raisers and Lovers we certainly need to learn "What's Up" with those "Revenuers" and "Egg-Spurts" and UNITE OURSELVES and our COMMUNITIES before they yank the rug out from under us. Fact! Our Government is trying to take away our liberties and freedom of choices by using LAWS concocted to control us. It's not so much the "Chicken Disease" but a way of discouraging us, "We the People" from being able to care for ourselves! The Big Conglomerates are fast discouraging our, "Competition" and want to put the Kai-Bosh on our Back Yard Chickens. Another threat, yet to be realized but none-the-less lurking in the dark is the fact that Huge Corporations, (One beginning with Mon****o) is deliberately trying to completely stop us from buying our own seed to discourage home grown gardens. Don't take my word for it, look it up for yourself. They want to eventually create a commercial environment whereby the "BIG BROTHER" hand feeds us and not WE OURSELVES. It starts just like the controversial controls and limitations we're reading about. Most big earthquakes start with small rumblings. I'm not one of those verities of hermits anti-Government recluses but just another friendly citizen and neighbor who wants to be well informed! I do believe, however, that they will dish out as much or more baloney than we will tolerate. I absolutely LOVE my livestock, chickens, ducks and all. I love giving our fresh jumbo delicious back yard chicken's eggs to friends and neighbors. Some sell for profit and/or to compensate the cost of raising and feeding the critters, no fault to them, it's ALL GOOD. So as Forest Gump said, "THAT'S ALL I GOT TO SAY ABOUT THAT!"
