    Well, the contractor I hired to build the new coop/run turned out to be a con. Yes, I did give him $$ up front....you'd think by age 56, I'd know better. [​IMG]

    DH is in the process of tearing down what the contractor did. There was very little salvageable. The contractor has not returned my calls for a while now and I'm ready to get the hounds after him.

    If you live in the Butler area, beware of Derek Nelson. I talked to one of his references (after the fact [​IMG] [​IMG] who is actually a FRIEND of his), and she has quit recommending him because he's been dishonest.

    All I can think of doing is making a sign and sitting in front of his house. I know where his brother works and am tempted to call him just to be a beotch....this is definitely bringing out the beotch in me.

    Can't tell you how many times I've collapsed in tears over the past 2-3 weeks. It has me so depressed. I even had some really pretty chickens lined up to add to the flock. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thought I'd vent here cause only other BYCers know how incredibly depressing it is to have dreams of more chickens and a nice coop dashed.

    We're trying to come up with a plan B. Will also be working on how many authorities I can get involved investigating him.... Attorney General's Office, Penna Department of Revenue, IRS, BBB.... cause I bet he doesn't report/pay taxes. Yep...got the hidden beotch awake. [​IMG]

    Ooh Trish, I'd be banging some heads! [​IMG] Not only is it wrong but...I can imagine your dissappointment! Glad to hear you are not letting him off easy!

    Darlene, your wreath is a work of art, makes me think of a dreamcatcher!

    Trish, I pray the Lord will turn this all for good and that you will have an even better coop for your flock.... so be hopeful....It'll be OK. [​IMG]

    hi! I am not new to this site, but I normally do not post. My name is cathy from lehigh Valley. Had chickens 3 years now and this forum was such a tremdous help that first year! Everyone here was so helpfull and kind.

    Trish so sorry about what you are going though.....

    I also wanted to spread the word on here since this is a great and caring bunch. I just adopted some hens and a rooster from a woman in Hanover Township, Lehigh Valley, by Airport Road. Her township now forbids raising poultry and she has to rehome her entire flock by this weekend. All 7 months old, many breeds. Some looks fab, some seem to have been plucked a little or over mated , but otherwise healthy chickens. I feel so bad for her and my heart went out to her. I even brought home a rooster and I never thought I would have one. Always have had just hens. But he was cracking me up with his crowing earlier. I hope my neighbors find it funny too! [​IMG]

    She is asking a fee per chicken. I know if you are like my hubby you will wonder why they are not free. I am sure she loves her babies dearly and a fee ensures they do not end up on a plate or in a fight club. Here is her craigslist posting to see for yourself and maybe help her out with community support, or perhaps bringing home some chciekns.

    Thanks for reading!
