My name is Darrell Seymour I am fifty six years young married to the best wife and have four great grown children, seven dogs and two cats! Due to the economics crunch I was laid off on April 1, 2009, no trust me it was no April Fools tho I wish it had been. I decided to go back to school! So i spent the next two years at Piedmont Tech and on March 12, 2011 I got an associates degree in Residential Building Construction, but jobs here are still slow at hiring.
I have raised chickens several times before over the years then I get caught up in other things and get away from it for a while and end up getting back into it,(I just love the critters that much)! I had some lumber that I got from tearing down an old house and had built two coops after about nineteen years they started to rot so I got rid of them the last time I had chickens! I am going to try to get ready for a new flock next spring so I will build a few new coops and a chicken tractor or two. I live on two and a half acres so I got the space and the land is ours we been here for over thirty years, I don't think we will be leaving no time soon!
I am planning to raise chickens that are on the watch list to the critical list! I want to start out with Dominique, Jersey Giant( Both on the Watch List ), Campine, Chantecler ( Both on the Critical List), and Salmon Faverolle (on the Rare List). I will sell chicks and eggs to off set the cost of the feed and hope and pray this will work!
I am going to start building some chicken coops and chicken tractors to see if there is a market for them. Hopefully this will take off and I can make a business of it! I enjoy building Cornhole Boards and playing Cornhole ( a resin filled bag that you throw to ring a six inch hole in a 2'X 4' board, lot like horseshoes ). I also like reading anything about chickens ( Like they say you never get too old to learn)! I am a subscriber to " Backyard Poultry Magazine " and own lots of magazines and books, including " Raising Chickens for Dummies" and " Building Chicken Coops For Dummies "! This is how I found out about your Great Web site!!!!
Thank you for your time for once you give of it you never get it back!
