Hey ya'll !! I have been enjoying reading articles and looking at picture of all the chickens on BackYard Chickens.com for awhile now. Today I decided to join. The wife and I have been raising chickens now for about 5 years and we enjoy them very much. Our grandchildren love to collect the eggs and catch an occasional jail breaker. We have some free rangers and some that we raise in a cage but all of them are our pets. Along with our chickens we have three Tom turkeys and two Peafowl....and then there is is Vinny the Guinea....our watch dog. We have way too many roosters so we call our little piece of heaven...Rooster Ridge. We just purchased some chicks (Silver laced Wyandotts and Lakenvelders) last week and we have them in our home made brooder. Anyway that is just a little bit about our small farm. Glad to be a part of this community.
