Yellow Page Savings

DH let his fingers do the walking one day last week.

He was planning for spring when it will be time to start the broiler chicks.

His efforts paid off, at least potentially. The new place he called sells day old chicks at half the price of what we paid last year somewhere else.

At least if we purchase the larger number of chicks that we had planned on this year.

That savings will help to off-set the huge increases we're seeing in feed costs ... and gas expenses etc. etc.

Happy chicks. Aren't they cute?

It's starting for feel like spring!

We also raise our own chickens for meat. :) It is a huge savings for us.

I would love to raise chickens. We live in military housing so it isn't possible now, but I am reading up on it so one day we will be able to.
