I suppose with 40 posts I'm not that new anymore. I'm a bit late with the new introduction thingy. I joined because I had an emergency and never got around to saying hi. Well here I am now saying a big HELLO to you all! I'm not very experienced with chickens but since I joined a few weeks ago I am learning some good stuff. Thanks to all who have helped me so far. In time I hope to be able to help other members the same way as they have helped me. I will apologize in advance for not returning conversation to any replies I may receive on this my introduction post. I post on a high number of forums on the www and would feel guilty not replying to you because I was elsewhere. I hope to share my experiences with as many as possible. Thanks in advance. Andrew.
