  1. Hello everyone, I'm looking for a source for earthworms. Red wigglers are fine too. I'd like to acquire a pound of two. thanks
  2. Thank you to all who replied. Doesn't seem like there is too much to be concerned about for the near future. Fingers X'd for a speedy draught of all the control legislation in a fair and thoughtful manor.
  3. Hello everyone, this is an interesting topic that I can't seem to get a straight answer on. Has marijuana been legalized in Mexico? What are the possession limits? Number of plants if growing? Can anyone answer this with any degree of certainty? I have several friends here with cancer who are looking for medicine. I'd like to help them but not at the risk of ending up in a Mexican jail. tnx
  4. Where can a person buy baled hay between Chapala and Ajijic?
  5. Can anyone tell me where I can buy kerosene here at lakeside? I believe the name in spanish is petrolio. tnx
  6. The above are the questions, and I'm still looking for the answers. Thanks
  7. Hello Everyone, can anyone tell me if there is an astronomy club here at lakeside? Or even a small group of people that get together informally? I did a search but there is nothing current. The International tech school or whatever it is called on the Libramiento at one time was starting a club. It appears it is no more according to the school. Even if there is just one or two people who like to stargaze that would help. I'm as brand new to astronomy as a baby's first breath. thanks
  8. Yeah I highly doubt there being any illegality but perhaps in a frac where the rules state they cannot have them but even that is doubtful. Even places like Vista Del Lago allows hens. Practically every second one of my neighbours all have at least two hens in the back yard. Good luck trying to tell a Mexican he doesn't have the right to keep a chicken in his own yard.
  9. I'm not familiar with Hope House or what they do. For me personally I prefer the meat of any dual purpose bird over a meat bird. Meat birds tend to just sit around and get fat for six to eight weeks until they are killed providing they don't die of a heart attack first which is very common with them.....the body grows so fast that the heart can not keep up with the rapid growth. Where as dual purpose birds love to forage for live food like worms and insects of all kinds and other things like mycelium from mushrooms and therefor are more active giving their meat much better muscle tone. The texture and flavour are superior with dual purpose birds under one year of age. But they earn their keep when fed all the yard waste and quickly scratch it up, mixing in dirt and fecal matter for a quickly decomposing natural fertiliser. Goes in garbage, comes out gold.
  10. Thank you for this, I will have a look there also. This is a new one for me.
  11. Sea, I have tried here before and found nothing. But with that said it will probably be a good bet later on at a different time if there is a smaller breeder who only has babies once or twice a year. May have to keep going back on a regular basis. Thank you for your effort.
  12. Thanks for the effort. I'm very familiar with Murray McMurray Hatchery. They are the premier place to order from for the backyard grower or farmer alike but they normally don't ship into Mexico as they can not be sure of the order actually being allowed into the country by customs. At least that's what they told me on the phone when I enquired last year. I'm sure it's hard enough keeping up with the changing rules and regs of the USA much less trying to stay on top of what's changing in another country with a different language. I understand their plight. I asked that question too about putting me in touch with any customers etc. and they don't divulge their clients because of a privacy issue. So the search continues. At least now I have a couple leads to follow up on.
  13. Nah, this wasn't needed either and certainly was not helpful.
