    So I picked up my last chicks from the feed store today... 5 Buff Orps, 5 SLWs, and 5 Americaunas. I stopped by my mom's house to pick up all of my chicken-raising supplies, and while I was there, I ended up catching a teenage-gopher. I didn't have the heart to dispose of him, so I put him in a plastic box for "relocation" somewhere away from the gardens and lawns. Let me set the scene for you:

    A box of 15 baby chicks, seat belted into the front seat. A blue plastic kiddie pool, folded in half and stuffed unceremoniously, into my back seat. There's a roll of chicken wire, a light, and a 50lb sack of scratch in my trunk. Oh yeah, and a gopher on the floor of the front seat, in a plastic box.


    As I climbed into the car, I thought..."Gee, I hope I don't get pulled over." [​IMG]


    I have suddenly become that crazy lady that lives down the street, with all the cats and chickens [​IMG]

    I can picture it well. On Christmas night we moved our flock of chickens and cats and dogs to our new farm. In back of my husbands truck was four boxes of grown hens, 4-5 to a box. Inside cab was hubby and I and 3 cats, each in a pillowcases (don't ask); 1 cat loose; and 1 dog and of course all the cat/dog beds, kennels, and chicken feeders, waterers. We looked worse than the Beverly Hillbillies and it was Christmas night.

    Once when we were going on vacation we took our son's goat to my mom to be taken care of....we transported him in our mini van and yep he sat in the floor just like a dog, no crate.....I remember thinking "we're just like the beverly hillbillies"
