I just want someone else to raise them near me. Then I could swap for them. Tomorrow is opening day for turkey season here in NY. Want to go Sharon? :) I like chickens.

If you really want to drive your neighbors nuts, get guineas! :-) I'm going to try to get a good sized post about our guineas up in the next few days (not there yet). Basically - there are a LOT of good things about them. And- we seem to have solved the problem of their laying all over- ours are laying, 100% we think, in the coop. We're getting an average of 7-8 eggs a day; more than we can eat. Chickens Schmickens! If you really want to drive your neighbors nuts, get guineas!
