James I tried responding to your post but I'm not sure how this works so will try here too. I may be interested in taking your hens but wonder how old they are to get a sense of possible issues when introducing them to mine. Drop me a line when you get a chance.
James, Betty was 5 weeks old when we got them, but I can't remember when we took the trip out to Mission where we got them.I am guessing she is about 4 months now?
I sniped her beek before you got her to try and help her eating. It bled like a dickens, I had to hold her with a cloth and apply pressure for 20 min or so to stop the bleeding. I would advise against the dermal tool.I would love to see how she is doing sometime?
Hi, I notice you list Kitsilano as your neighbourhood. Maybe you'd like to join the Kitsilano Transition Village on VV. We're planning a potluck for April 11. (Currently we have 10 members on KTV - and I know there's at least 20-30 people on the VV site who live in our area - It would be nice to meet - at least online, if not in person! - Mary firstname.lastname@example.org
Regarding youth and the Toxic Free Canada rally on February 25, we have only a couple teenagers and about a dozen members in their twenties. Our Health Group hasn't yet formed, and is currently without a convenor.
If you would like, we'd love to have this event posted on our site, and you could do it, as noted above by going here. You can upload any image file (which will be cropped to a square) to make the event stand out better. Arzeena Hamir last month posted the Pesticide Ban rally, and a number of VV members heard about it on this site, and passed the message around.
Interested in participating in a VV garden? We have collaborative gardens/garden spaces in 5 neighbourhoods. Contact us at email@example.com. Gardening now in progress. New gardeners welcome (space allowing).
