    Going to be retiring in the next two years and moving back down south from Upstate NY. Was looking to have chickens and or rabbits. Kinda eggs for 4 and bunny parts to eat when the venison is low or beef prices go up to high! Really like what i have seen on this site... learning a lot with a lot to learn before i dive in in a few years!
