    yeah! How about somewhere off of Hwy 15 in Mira Mesa? My thought was that even if it was just a handful at first, we can grow! Heather, Nancy have already said they'd love to get together. We won't waste a whole day just a couple hours for lunch and then we're out of there to go home and take care of business.

    Sounds fun to me! Is Heather or Nancy puresnowchick? If not I should tell her too.

    A meetup would be really fun, we can actually put faces/personalities behind BYCers and actually make friends that understand chicken addiction without thinking we are wierd! lol [​IMG]

    No I don't know who that is. So yes, invite her too! I always tell people that every neighborhood needs a "crazy old chicken lady" and well I guess I'm it for my "hood". hahahahaha
    I guess the next step is to actually pick a date. How does September 25 look? Say 11:00?

    That day is fine for me. I PM'd puresnow so she can join in this thread too.

    I can totally understand being the crazy chicken lady lol
    I'm sure I seem pretty strange too, having a diapered duck in my house that attacks everyone who comes in my yard or to the door!

    Raffle is a great idea. [​IMG] I do one where they give you a ticket for each item you bring, 2 tickets if you bring a bird (no males unless you bring a pair) then each person picks a prize when they win on a ticket. items can be anything, we usually bring, eggs, produce,crafts, books and just whatever... lol. It's like trading anyway when you just have a small group of people. Whatever y'all think and we can skip the bird part, if anyone wants to trade birds or eggs we could talk about that before then --- unless you all think it's a good idea to do that too.


    I'm so glad we all have already made a date. How exciting! Can't wait to meet ya!
