I'm starting this thread to publicly thank all of the folks who have come to my rescue; offered advice, support, and shared their experiences and secrets to raising chickens with me and the rest of the BYC community. Your input has been so valuable and I am truly grateful to have found y'all. I know I can be somewhat long winded and a bit... shall we say, overly analytical(?) but y'all have been patient and kind in taking the time to be helpful to a complete stranger. And I am grateful for it. So, I am going to tag those of you to whom I am speaking directly and if anyone else feels like thanking or giving kudos to those who have done the same for you, feel free to keep this thread going and pay it forward. In no particular order: @GAMarans @carcar80 @PapaChaz @chickengr @katsdar @Flowerbh @carlene lamolin @silverhill @casportpony @Eggcessive @Henthused @RoboDuck @ShadesofSable @dawg53 @Lobzi I know I'm forgetting to tag some folks, so if I forgot to list you, I truly do thank you all. Most especially the endless list of folks who hang out in the YO GEORGAINS! thread!
