    wow. Wonder what that is going to do to chicken prices in the stores, short term. that's a lot of poultry loss in one pass and those houses won't be back in production any time soon.

    What amazing pictures!!!! thank you so much for sharing [​IMG]

    Awesome pics, wow, thanks so much for sharing - and I agree, 9 miles totally worth it, those shots are beautiful!

    Oz, I don't know how you ever leave the lanai.

    DiDi, those photos are amazing! Man, I live right close to that and haven't been in years. I see, that it is time!! Can you believe the diversity in that area of our state? Red Rocks, rivers that bend forever deep in a canyon, and then, to find a place with beautiful little springs, and water falls. Just beautiful.

    While that sounds like a lot of chickens (and is) that is only 5% of the number of broilers produced in Alabama each week (20 million produced weekly). And Alabama is only number 3 in broiler chicken production. If my memory serves me correctly GA and MS are numbers 1 and 2.

    That is MY hand and we all know I am super sized...

    Mystery egg in middle...top is Crested Duck, to right is Buff Tufted Goose, bottom is Lilac turkey, and left is standard Chantecler chicken.

    Any more guesses (quail...really? I love the California ones tho - Callipepla californica) ... NOT Canadian Quail. [​IMG]
