Treefolks carbon offset calculator

Carbon emissions from our modern lifestyle are contributing to rapid climate change. We must all take steps to reduce our emissions but you can make an immediate positive difference by purchasing carbon "offsets". Offsets are investments in things that sequester CO2 (like planting trees) or avoid CO2 (like alternative energy). Offsets from TreeFolks, Inc. allow us to plant trees in public spaces right here in Central Texas.

Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Lab for chicken necropsy

Some folks have sent their dead chickens to this lab where they will
study their cause of death. You can even call them and chat with an
avian specialist to get more info. Ship them in an ice chest packed
with ice using next day delivery. Do not freeze the body. Just refrigerate them until you ship. Check shipping rates verses gas to drive to the lab.
