There's a woman in Montana who brings chickens to nursing homes as a memory therapy. Apparently, at least for the ones that grew up on farms, petting chickens helps bring back memories. Interesting.
I get e-mails from Murray McMurray Hatchery and the last one they sent offered 6-week red star pullets for $8.95. Since it looks like I have two roosters, I thought I'd see about getting a couple. I may have done this wrong, but when I put in my zip code to see what the shipping would be, it came up as $55.00! I know they're live animals and need about more care, but $55.00? I need to read more about it. If I'm wrong about the shipping, I'll let you know.
