Today was my scheduled day to donate platelets at City of Hope. This is a two hour appointment lying in a recliner chair. Instead of watching a movie as I usually do, I took my new Backyard Poultry magazine with me to read. The women in that room never stopped asking me questions about my chickens, how I got into them, where do I keep them...etc. etc. etc. My magazine got passed around to patients and nurses. My subscription cards from the inside of the magazine got torn out. These women were so excited to "talk chicken" that the two hours flew by. Tomorrow one of the ladies is coming over for coffee and to see my chicks and coop. I am emailing pictures to 3 of the other ladies. I gave everyone this website's address and told them how knowledgable you all are. It's been a great morning!
