    I have been watching craigslist to see if I could score some free chain link fencing to extend the girls run. No such luck. All the free stuff was 4 feet high and I wanted 6 foot so I can walk in it. I noticed one post for 25' of fence for $100 dollars that had been up several weeks. I emailed and told her I couldn't buy it, but if she wanted it gone I'd take it off her hands. She agreed! WOOT!

    That's AWESOME! [​IMG]

    I have always been one to advertise my stuff in the "free" section. Now that I'm incubating eggs and thinking about some serious coop-building, I have my fingers crossed that all the freebies I shelled out will come back to me in some form or fashion! It's good to be good to people ... I'm sure she absolutely made your day! My mom always says, "it never hurts to ask!" I'm usually to nervous to do that, but good for you! [​IMG]
