    Hello everyone. This seems like a great forum where I can learn from the experts. I am new to all this. My family has been involved with the egg business for decades and I finally want to get involved. My grandfather, before he passed away years ago, was responsible for 90% of the eggs transported throughout the world. I have had an interest in raising chickens as a hobby and for fresh eggs but now have tampered with the idea of making some money in the process. Feel free to drop a line in my inbox and thank you all for being here with me!

    More of a hobby.. Love the silkies and have hatched quite a few. Looking for that splash hen. Roos, I send to a local farm. We appreciate the fresh eggs. So, its a hobby.. [​IMG]
