Hi Kristen, Just checking in with you to see if you still want the laying hens, and when would work for you to pick them up. Their current shelter will be torn down around May 14th... so if you are able to get them before that, it would be great. But if you need me to keep them a little while longer for you I could arrange some temporary shelter for them.  Let me know what works for you :)

Hi Kristen,

thanks for your message about the laying hens. I can definitely reserve 5 of each breed for you. I am realizing that I will need to get them to their new homes once they reach adult size, so that might be in May. Would you have housing for them then?   Here is my email: chrisandbella @ yahoo. com    That might be a quicker way to communicate.  Thanks!

Oh, I am so glad that you are working!  That does make me feel better even if we can't have you as the kids' teacher.  Becca is home schooling both Sarah and Sean this year.  We all got Greg Janzen.  He's nice enough.  Kim doesn't particularly like him, nor does Becca.  I'm ambivalent.  He seems pretty hands off if that's what I want so that works for me! lol  Kim is rocking it with a great start.  Her goal is to promote to 7th by the end of March.  How is your new place?  We'd love to get together with you for tea or something.  Let me know if that's something you want to do.  My email is safine752@gmail.com.  Congrats on the position :)
