    Hello BYC family!

    My Name is Anthony and I am married with a special needs 10 yr old son. I am a transplant from Virginia to New jersey a little over 11 years ago.

    I just recently got introduced to the world chickens and other poultry and fowl by sending an e-mail to apply for a p/t second job at a local farm opperated by another member here. It was and entirely different experiance than what I am use to being raised on dairy farms in Virginia,but I must say it is quite a pleasing experiance.

    Out of all the chicken breeds that I work with I must say I believe I am totally in love with the Dutch Bantams with a close second going to the phoenix, but they are all quite entertaining. my eyes have been opened to a whole new worls and I am loving it !


    I am enthused about learning all I can about chickens and other poultry and fowl and perhaps how to convience my wife into the farm life lol.

    She is allergic to birds,and all fur covered animals except cats , and on occasion she is allergic to me. If it wasn't for the allergies I would just introduce her to a couple lil Dutch girls I know and it would be over lol. Thanks for the welcoming!
