    I believe in "paying it forward" , when I was having a tough time while waiting for my Unemployment decision, several people were kind to me.
    I have decided, now that things are somewhat back to normal to help someone else out.
    If I had not had my chickens during the tough times and eggs to hatch, I would have gotten very depressed.

    I will send at least a dozen (likely more) eggs to someone deserving. The will be Barred Rock, Blue Orp, Buff Orp, RIR , Cochin and Buff Orp Rooster on RIR hen. I will also include a couple Bronze Turkey eggs.

    Everything is Pure except the RIR/BO eggs. My Cochins are mixed colors right now.

    I will make a decision Monday at 10am and announce the winner. These will ship by next Friday ( I can adjust shipping if needed)

    Have Fun and I hope this catches on. I think this is wonderful thing we can do to help.

    Karen, you're super sweet to offer this. I'm sitting here trying to think of a good reason to ask for these and for the life of me I can't come up with one. I've been so blessed by the generosity of others on this board. Thanks for paying it forward.

    I was raised with Good Morals and taught to "Do unto others" if it had not been for the kindness and generosity of people when I was having a tough time, I would not have made it through. I can't afford to give tons to charity, but I help where I can.
    I also give a dozen eggs a week to my neighbor, she is divorced and retired, her son lost his job and moved home, he has custody of his 2 kids. I know things are tight there and if eggs will help in some small way it is the least I can do.

    This is so nice of you![​IMG] There are so many wonderful giving people on this site! I hope to follow in your foot steps soon! But my Favorelle pullets seem like they are NEVER going to lay an egg![​IMG]
    But when they do...I will have 9 hens!! Then I will have lots of fresh eggs to share!! I can't wait! I tell them everyday that they need to get with the program...they don't listen very well!!

    How nice of you [​IMG] I can't think of any reason why I'd be more deserving than others. I hate tooting my own horn or sounding selfish in any way. Makes me feel bad. But I will say that whoever wins your eggs, should be very happy [​IMG] All those breeds....such pretty chickens in the making! Blue chickens are one of my favorite colors, so those Orps sound very interesting looking! I don't believe I've seen those before.

    Well, you know I am more than blessed with all my birds, a great husband and friends like you, so I'm wont ask for them for me. This is a nice thing to do for someone, but it's just like you. [​IMG]

    Wow, so many wonderful people on this board! I'm sure there are many that want and deserve these eggs, I would love to have them, but I just sold one of my bators. My other bator will be full for a while, and then I have the hatcher. I can't wait till I have enough extra money so I can do something like this!
  9. Open it up for nominations.... I nominate a newbie, pick one.

    That is very nice! Not sure that I deserve them anymore than anyone else.. but would love to have them. That is also my motto as of late, Pay it forward. I think that if more people would go by this motto the world would be a better place! I am also a big supporter of bartering. I keep thinking that farmers markets should set up a barter system. Thats' how it was done in the old days....[​IMG]
