I had NO idea I had so many knowledgeable chicken experts reading this blog. Truly, thank you for the encouragement and all the fantastic links. I have my work cut out for me. I even found out my receptionist is on a similar chicken kick and she pointed me to a place that is selling 8 month old laying hens. Score!
There are all sorts of things that put me in a good mood this week. I put new tags on everyone’s collars, and they are seriously, seriously cute tags. Since people tend to frown on dressing up 80 pound dogs in cute outfits, I have to rely on accessories for the cute factor, so there you go.
The lovely Jen Cleere from Fetching Tags offered to send me my very own set of tags for the menagerie, and as soon as I saw how adorable they were I said, “Yes, please!”
I mean, how can you not think those are stinkin cute. The real ones have readable phone numbers, but I read that it’s a bad idea to put your phone number out on the net so I blurred them out. I’m more of an e-mail person anyway.
I told Jen to put whatever she wanted on the other side.
She sure did her homework! That is them in a nutshell. But look at what she put on a second set:
I’m dying here. Best tags ever.
I’m kind of lazy so most of my tags in the past were those I got at the pet store, the cheapie ones who were chipped enough in a year that they were impossible to read without a penlight and some imagination. These tags are bigger, solid, and tough- Brody’s been going gangbusters at daycare and his tag still looks brand new.
Fetching Tags supports rescue organizations, makes one-of-a-kind unique pieces, and is a small business (my favorite kind), so I’m happy to give them our pawcurious seal of approval! I’m thinking of getting one for my stethoscope that says “PAWS OFF”. LOL!
