Amazing how Sweet Jesus our Lord & Savior, gave us so many pleasures in life. You know I'd already mentioned to you I had been through cancer and treatments from chemo to radiation, still on meds now that make me feel funked out. BUT, as I also said, My Chickens became "Soup for my Soul" The joy I had watching my chicks hatch and caring for them and the love I receive back has been just amazing.I do value all your information on your site and enjoy viewing all the pics on FB. It's so much fun!! Thanks again,B
