I've been keeping chickens for 26 years. Started with Bantees on a rural Isl off the SC coast near Beaufort. Then moved to full sized hens when I moved back to town on an island suburb of Savannah in 1996. I began a face book page for Savannah Backyard Chickens in conjunction with Savannah's first Coop Tour I conceived 5 years ago and its going strong still- from one trolley that first year to 3 this past year! Now I've "bought the farm" of my dreams outside Asheville NC, and am looking for chicken community there as well. I hope to move into more livestock like quail and goats for starters, and trout ponds eventually- not to mention fruit trees and gardens. Glad to find this online community. will be lurking around for a bit, but trying not to spend too much time online... you how it is! Cheers!!
