Good Morning from the Wanna-Be State of Jefferson!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just joined yesterday, found this site as I was looking for pallet coop suggestions/plans. I haven't had chickens for many years but plan to get mine going soon. I use to raise and butcher 100 a year the old fashion method of hand plucking and a five gallon bucket of hot water. Now my plans are raising them for eggs only unless I get the urge for farm fresh meat. They will be free range, organic and loved! This looks like a great site to find out what chicken knowledge I've missed over the last 35 years!

Hello there and welcome to BYC! :frow

 

You certainly have come to the right place for all the chicken talk!

 

It's always nice to come back to a hobby, sometimes there is a new light to it. I hope this time around you find it even more enjoyable!

 

Make yourself at home here and if you do have any questions, feel free to ask.

 

So pull up a roost bar and welcome to our flock! :-)

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

If you haven't noticed yet, I am the king of typos.

When I post in the "What Breed Or Gender Is This" section, I do not name hatchery/peoples' hybrids by a "breed" name (for example, Oliver Egger)--they are either a purebred or a mixed breed.

Hey, nice to meet you.

Not sure where Stonyford is, but I'm way up here in Ca also, Crescent City, where the redwoods meet the sea. Heard some of the State of Jefferson stuff, but not actually familiar with it. Just moved up here under 2 years ago. LOVE it here!

Have fun, welcome to BYC!
