    Hello I am 16 years old and run my own poultry farm just outside of Quincy, Illinois. I started raising chickens for an SAE program for my FFA chapter. I started off with 2 cross bantams, and caught chicken fever. I have been raising chickens for over a year now, and i've increased my flock to 70 birds, including some Ring-necked Pheasants and Bob White quail. I used to work for a gamefowl farmer so i learned alot about those mean birds. Im currently "playing around" with my bantams since i've already bred everything i need for this years shows. You can view my birds on my website i built at www.terwelpbantams.webs.com. Cant wait to talk to some great chicken experts!
