    Hi all, just getting back into this chicken raising after quite a long hiatus. When my sons were young and involved in 4H we raised chickens n turkeys for a quite a few years. Then after they got older and had other interests, little by little I just drifted away from it. We didn't have forums that I know of..well maybe there was but everyone didn't have computers back then..LOL..showin my age I guess :/ .. but for some reason the fire has started to burn again. I just started checkin out this forum and it seems pretty cool with a lot of good info to read. I'm just starting out with a small flock and have ordered 3 BO pullets, 3 RIR pullets, and 3 BO cockerels which I will cull 2 for the freezer come early fall.I look forward to reading all your posts and relearning all I can about this great hobby. ;)

    I know where you are coming from! I grew up around a lot of livestock, but left some of it behind for a good portion of my adult life. But I think it comes back to haunt you when you get older, LOL and draws you right back in.

    Enjoy all your poultry adventures and it is great to have you aboard!
