    Hi all. First if all let me say that of all the places on the internet to learn about chickens, this is by far the BEST!!!

    I am new to raising chickens and so far I love it. I got my first group a little over a year ago. Right now I have a total of 7 chickens. I have 2 Red Star's (1 Roo and 1 hen) 1 Sulatn Bantam hen, 1 Red Buff Cochin Roo, and 3 hens that are some cross between an RIR and something else (got these 3 about 2 weeks ago). I am trying to get pics up so everyone here will help me figure out what they are.

    I found out about BYC by accident. I was looking into how to raise chickens and, well, here I am.

    Other than playing with my chickens, I enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, camping and stuff like that. I also have a small stained glass business . It's funny to watch Captain Jack (my Red Roo) hop up onto the table and monitor my progress on a glass.

    I am married with one son. I have a Min. Pin. who thinks he is a chicken hearder (or al least until Capt. Jack get tired of him)

    I teach 7th grade science and love my "kids".

    I am excited about my chickens and can't wait for more.

    [​IMG] from West Virginia. I'm also relatively new to this site and I have learned sooooo much. Also, I'm learning that the majority of chicken owners have a terrific sense of humor. I LOVE this site!!
