Hey Emily! Send an email to my favorite chicken lady, Megan: firstname.lastname@example.org. Half of my hens have come from her and I've sent a lot of people her way. She has a good selection of very nice, healthy birds. If you are lucky, she may still have 2 beautiful Rhode Island Reds that were hand raised by 4-H kids and just started laying. Cheers!
Jacqui and James also both live in Hastings, so you have the start of a local village. In other very local news, Village Vancouver, Neighbour to Neighbour, and the Hastings Park Conservancy will be hosting this coming spring a new Hastings Townsite design charrette, a way for the whole community to plan the community, its parkland, cycling routes, community gardens, and commercial areas. We'll let you know more about it in April.
