    Just posted a listing in "chicks 8 weeks and older" for some of my Black Standard Cochins.

    Pullets and Roos ! Some really nice birds.

    These are not culls,,, just too many here and I want to find them good homes !

    Good selection here.

    thanks, Ray

    I don't think that I have reached out you folks yet, but us chicken friends could use some help. We are facing an 80% reduction in people who can legally have chickens in Michigan. We had the best protection in the nation, but now we are facing a major change in the rules that allow chickens and bees and farm markets here. If this proposal passes, we face losing the "farm" products that sustain us.

    I'm a displaced PA boy. Born in Huntingdon and reared in Tipton. My family was from there and Heston and parts there abouts. I grew up within sight of Lincoln Caverns on Route 22.
    If you care about keeping chickens, bees or small "farm" animals where you live, would you please send an e-mail to the Ag Commission here in Michigan?

    Thank you.

    It's tough and my daughters cornered me over the whole stealing lipstick thing! My 12yr old said" Dad! You are not taking my lipstick to wipe on chicken butts!" There has been one a day, some days it's two. And the eggs have been different looking. One was even a darker brown with chocolate brown spots (and it wasn't poop)

    The bank manager that has chickens locally is going to be taking the lil ones that are left from the parking lot dump after you guys have yours taken out said " I have more hatching soon and a pile that are ready to go" So he said he is ready to stock me up too. You guys are all gonna have me over run with chickens too! lol
