    OOOPPs wrong thread..sorry.
    Pictures from my boss' farm in the 1940's...

    My boss' family raised chickens for meat and eggs in downtown Scottsdale. Mr. (Paul) Messinger said that he does not like to eat chicken now as that is what was for dinner almost every night.

    It is harder to get a group shot these days.
    The EE's are 33 days old and the trio ( BR and SLW) are 26 days old.
