    This one is not from Rural King she is from February Egg Swap I added her pic so you all can confirm she is a she? She is the Welsummer. The blue one in the pic is a blue silkie and black silkie I got from Cackle and the yellow on is either a buff cochin or one of the yellow ones I hatched from Feb swap cant see its legs and the yellow ones all look the same.

    These are the rest they are all doing great

    On a side note Rural King called today and offered me a Department head position in the farm department there. [​IMG] Guess in a week I'll be taking care of the chickies there [​IMG]

    THAT is fabulous, Sheila! Just fabulous! I am proud of you getting that position! What did you do, sign up for the job???? Hubby would like to work there but he has not done it for some time. (Stock/warehouse and of course, he is familiar with farm machinery and from an old farm community!).

    Quote:Thanks I have been looking for another job for awhile wanted so bad to get out of Walmart, thats another story, but I was in there one day talking to the people that work there about caring for the chicks and the department manager that he was leaving told me that I should put my application in. I did and at the first interview they told me only part time. I told them I couldnt do that I had to have full time in order to leave Walmart. I figured that would be the end of that but the manager called this morning and offered me the department manager job. I start in about a week. I am giving Walmart a weeks notice. I hope they give me free reign on that department cause I have alot of ideas. One I am thinking about for next year is to do a promotion on backyard chickens to coincide with chick days. Needless to say if they let me I will be ordering alot of BYC business cards to hand out. [​IMG] I cant wait to get started. Also I will have every Sunday off and one weekend a month and I will work 7-4 with one day a week til close. Much better than the crazy hours I work at Walmart.

    That is fantastic!!!!!!!!! I can not wait to see you at Rural king one of these days!

    I don't use my punch card for getting the tenth bag free, not sure if they offer that anymore. I don't know if you can use it yourself because I strictly feed my girls Purina.

    I don't know what a Rural King is, like TSC maybe? but it sounds like you will be doing something next to your heart and I am happy for you. Congrats!!

    Yes Rural King is a bit like TSC and Farm and Fleet. A nicer farm store than Farm and Fleet.
