"We have been getting nanoeggs too for about a week from our Barr Rock. She had been very steady for about one and a half years, then she stopped laying suddenly when another hen got broody. About a week ago she started the nanoegg cycle. If we…"
"I saw some brand new woven poly bags that were being sold as sand bags for about a dollar each at Home Depot on Renaissance yesterday. I was not in the market for poly bags, but they caught my attention. They were not where I would have…"
"Feeding them before they roost for the night helps them generate more heat. Somewhere I read that each hen generates as much heat as a 75 watt light bulb. Be careful with other heat sources in the coop, because there have been several…"

Hello again Bob,
Whenever you get this message could you please call me?(980 9517) I decided that I would much rather have someone who treated my girl like a pet and spoiled her like she is used to, than one of many nameless chickens (even though that was a nice offer too). Thanks!
Thank you for responding. I got a call tonight and a woman is planning on coming over tomorrow and picking her up but if she does not come, I will let you know. Thanks again! Its nice to know that my girl will be taken care of no matter what!
