Hi Fellow COOPers,

Spring has sprung and with it chicks!

I have three chick-related requests/notices to pass along:


Jesse Howe has started his "Rent a Chick" program for the spring. Some of you know Jesse as the "egg and honey guy" at the Glenside Farmer's Market. Please see his flyer [pdf] if you are interested.

Conny Sterner ( wants to get in on a chick order if anyone is placing an order.

Bernie Woodford ( says:

    Do you have any idea where I can buy local Buff Orpington pullets? I want to skip the chick phase so I know I am getting hens and not roosters. I'm in the Upper Southampton area.

So if anyone can help out Conny or Bernie please let them know!

Also, we'd like to have a get-together in April or May so keep that in mind. I'll be conferring with Eileen about when they want to host the party and get back to everyone with some dates.

Have a great spring everyone. Hope to see you all soon.
