    Hello Guys,

    I am new to keeping chickens in adulthood. We always had chickens when I was a child. Now I am getting started with chickens now that I have my own family and home(with land). When I was a child I did not have anything to do with the chickens ... just reaped the benefits. Now my wife and I want to become as self sustainable as possible. The poultry is the first step. I hope that I can interact with you guys throughout the journey.

    Hope to see and talk to you guys soon,

    PS: If there are any users around the gainesville area, or west of gainesville, shoot me a message.

    Welcome I am over near Tallahassee. You will learn much here. Read the predators thread and the illness threads. Can be depressing but it will help you be better prepared in case of a problem.

    Black Australorps are my favorite standard breed; very hardy, calm and gentle, and the best layers of the standard, brown egg laying breeds. Good luck with your Australorps.
