    Hi, I didn't do this, I was so excited I just jumped in asking questions. I am Jim. Live in western PA with PAs most famous critter, Punxsutawney Phil. For most of my life I had a 130 acre hobby farm raising beef cattle. Sold the farm, bought a couple of acres near town, and am semi retired. I have been working on building a organic garden. And for some reason I have a fascination with chickens and just have to have some. Glad I found this site.

    [​IMG], Jim!

    First off, I just had to share that I love Punxsutawney Phil! One of my more random goals in life is to visit Punxsutawney for the Groundhog Festival one day. I think it would be tons of fun to be in the huge crowd at Gobbler's Knob when the big announcement is made!

    Glad to have you here! [​IMG] Thanks for joining!
