    Ray has GLW and SLW just like my girls. That just saves me from wanting to have more of his birds "follow" me home and he is outside of Womelsdorf.

    PAchickenlady, if you have not seen it yet, and your brother or S-i-l have not told you, the standard space for chickens (not bantams) is 4 sq feet inside, and 10 sq ft in the run. We ALL encourage chicken math here, but don't let us force you into 30 (30,000!) right now if you have no way to get a new coop(s) built that fast.
    If it helps though, they do make chicken diapers so you can let them in the house.
    No. I am not kidding.
    Are you still reading, or are you checking the Internet?
    Did you look? See any colors you like? Maybe get a matching bra or two? [​IMG]

    You will not have to give them a heat source. They are very winter hardy. In the hot summer you need fans, frozen soda bottles, frozen fruits, and veggies. Welcome!!!!!!!

    Please don't think I'm crazy, but I had to post this! My 1 1/2 week old D'Uccle/Langshan chick started crowing this morning. Absolutely no mistaking it, standing tall, arching the neck, SCREEEECH!!! About 7 or 8 times in a row. Talk about cute, that baby is still so tiny, full of down, the only real feathers are in the wings. Isn't nature awesome? I did Google it and though not common, other people had similar stories, almost all of which were bantams. The bad part is I just found out I have 1 more roo.....UGH![​IMG]

    Well, I am looking to sell not buy. But I hate the rough handling part.....

    I don't think this is the one though. I think there is one in Central PA. Maybe even Centre County. RoPo.. do you remember the name?
