We had quite the event here last Sunday. About 400 people showed up to see chickens. In the library. Maybe you saw the story on the evening news. The Austin and Central Texas Backyard Poultry Meetup Group brought their birds, some of them champion prize winners, and set them in cages over wood shavings on library tables, and apparently, people want to see that kind of thing because we had a bigger crowd lined up to look at chickens than we’ve had for any event at Central since I’ve worked here, and that is no inconsiderable time.
If you missed it, here’s the link to the group’s web site: ACTBPMG, where there is a calendar of upcoming meetups, you can catch them again soon. And here are some poultry books to check out from the library to get you started. We’re trying to keep abreast of (get it?) the latest chicken technology and keep the classic chicken-raising books on the shelves, but if you notice we’re missing something, please send us a suggestion here: SUGGEST A PURCHASE.
factoid: You know that chickens are dinosaurs, don't you?
