Just found out today I am being rotated to a different shop in Feb. The job Ill be going to is 120 miles away , so I won't be home 4 days a week . I was sooo looking forward to our usual chicks (about 50 meat birds ) and some new layers espcially since my BR fiona died . Now I can't even think about getting chicks since I have no one experienced enough to look after the babies . Our roomate will take care of the grown ups , cats horses etc. it really kinda put me in a bad mood . On the up side , the job I'm going to is the one my fiance' is running so I'll see him more and we'll save money . And just to let everyone know , we've worked together before for almost a year and had no problems with being together 24/7 . Guess I'll have to look in the local classifieds for free or cheap layers and a rooster . It seems like they're always advertising free chickens , but now that I want some , there are none !
