    hello!

    The wife and I have finally settled down in our home...well we did that three years ago, but due to finishing my degree with my gi bill after eight years in the navy and having a solid job now.

    Back story time. I was raised around chickens my whole life up until I left for boot camp at 19. That was 12 years ago and I haven’t retained much of chickens in the last decade. My wife and I are happy to be here and to meet everyone!

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens, so glad you joined the flock. Others will welcome you but may be awhile. I'm one of several who stay up too late
