    Hello everyone! Excuse the screen name - it was due to the lack of imagination! [​IMG]

    I am from Georgia and became really interested in chickens a couple of years ago after seeing how much fun they are when a friend has them. Now that friend has passed on and I take care of them for the wife. She has a wide variety. I currently have a game hen and her brood of 8 chicks (with a brahma bantam rooster, 5 pullets and 3 roos - the roos are going to have to go soon!) at my house. It was a test run to see if I can raise them successfully and it seems to have worked. So hopefully I will be able to diversify and use the game hen and her pullets as surrogate mothers (I know there are better surrogate mothers such as silkies, but those seem to be really alert and protective so the only thing is to introduce more broodiness - at least that is my plan so far.

    I have a varied interest - especially bantams and exotic breeds. I will need to do more homework on where to get quality stock.

    I also have horses and 2 barn cats along with the chickens.

    Hope to see you all around.
