Greetings from high atop the Taconics in NY. I have looked through the forums from time to time and finally decided to join. I have been raising chickens with my wife for over four years after a hiatus from childhood. We have Barred Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons, Leghorns and a Speckled Sussex Roaster. We are planning on brooding more in the spring as well as ducks, turkeys and geese.
