I received an email today from Ideal Hatchery in Cameron, TX. It stated that USPS is moving to stop deliveries of day old chicks. According to Ideal, loosing USPS will pretty much be their end.
This will have an extremely adverse effect on poultry availability to farmers, preppers and poultry hobbyest in the future. It will crush this already stressed industry. They asked me to contact my representative.
If it goes through, would be preppers will find it difficult to get a start and established ones will have difficulty getting new blood into their flocks. This makes it harder for all of us.
Some one has started stealing my daughter's eggs. She lives in a small town near Lubbock. I don't know if it's an opportunistic jerk just practicing for the future, or not. It makes me glad I'm in the country and already at location for shtf.
On another note last weekend my son in Ft Stockton had to stand down Antifa. He said they posted they were going to hit the white people in town. They drove past his block and did not stop because they saw he was armed. He said some one on the other side of town did wind up shooting one that tried to break in their house that night. Sad times.
