    First, let me say that I've browsed this site for some time now prior to joining. Thanks goes out to everyone for the great articles, pics and forum discussions. It's helped me a lot. That said, it looks like there may be a bit of a learning curve in using the site but I'll get up to speed eventually.

    Now for a bit about myself...I'm J.B. and have lived in Oklahoma all my life. My wife and best friend of 36 years, Becky, is also an Okie through and through. We are currently working with our dear friends and partners in crime to get a 40 acre "hobby farm" up and running. It's lots of work but also lots of fun. I hope to post a few pics later as we make progress. Chickens and other poultry will be our main focus but we'll have other farm critters and possibly some aquaculture as well. We do have a "mixed bag" of chickens that we're learning from. They are a fun and sometimes exasperating little group. I do hope to focus on some pure bloodlines later on though and they will teach me the do's and don'ts in the meantime.

    Well, that's about enough of my long winded intro. I look forward to learning more from BYC members. Thanks again for the great site and wealth of information.

    Peace, Love and I'm Out! - JB

    Thanks for the "warm" welcomes...since it's cold outside! 60 one day and 29 with gusting winds the next. Good grief. On the bright side, it ain't as cold as some places.

    Back at Chickenpen - My best friend, who is one I'm homesteading with, is an OSU fan so we go at it pretty hard. Glad he lost the bet this year and has to fly OU flags at his house and a sticker on his truck. Ha! If I can only find some crimson and cream chickens.
