    Hello

    First let me thank you all for the advice you've given me over the last year that I have been actively lurking on this forum. I have had four chickens in a tractor in my back yard for the last year (supervised free ranging at times) and thier antics never grow old.

    I am finally joining the forum because I recently realized my long time dream of buying some property in the country. I am now the proud owner of a small house and gently used barn sitting on 3 acres in Marietta, SC (outside greenvile). I am planning on using one of the stalls in my barn to house another dozen or so chickens and some free range keets. I'm sure I will have lots of questions thorughout the process. Thank you all in advance.

    Hmmm. Well I guess this explains that strange "someone is watching me" feeling I have been having. [​IMG]
