Do you live in the Charlotte, North Carolina,
area and want some chickens? Carolina Waterfowl Rescue is trying
to find homes for 16,000 organic, brown-egg layers. The hens are
one to two years old and come from a certified chemical-free farm that
is being closed down.
This is a great chance to get some pet chickens or to start your laying
flock for cheap. (The organization does request a donation to
cover their costs.) Be forewarned that your adoption application
will probably be denied if you are like us and slaughter some of your
chickens for meat.
Edited March 5, 2012: This opportunity
is long past and is no longer available. Sorry — no more free

currently 10% off!
