    Hello

    My Name is Randy

    from central illinois

    i have been messing with chickens (with no experience) for two years. i have about 100 layers, RIR, Red stars, NHR's. i have 12 B.O's coming up along with 12 Blk Australorps and 12 Buff Orps. i currently have 50 C/C meatbirds going in dec 8. also have a few turkeys left. that was a lot of fun.

    5 goats... (they are some real goobers, lol, more like dogs.)

    want a cow, rabbits, pigs, quail, ducks, fruit trees, vines, berries, i have a big garden, want a greenhouse... you know typical of 5 acres.

    mostly want a "chemical free" way of raising animals.

    [​IMG] always looking for tips on ways to make life easier...

    Thanks.
    Dont be bashful, i drink coffee and love to chat.

    -Randy
