    Hi guys! Been a long-time lurker for nearly as long as the site's existed, but didn't make an account until a few months ago. And now I'm finally getting around to making my first post. Wanted to introduce myself briefly before I got on with more interactions with the community, which I'm looking forward to.

    Not much to say about myself. Been raising chickens and other fowl since I was a young boy. I've got a few dozen birds right now. The number is constantly fluctuating depending on time of year (chick season vs harvest season) but I'm probably going to be raising a lot more in the future as I increase coop space. Right now I raise chickens primarily for eggs, though I also eat plenty of chicken meat too. And currently I'm toying around with creating my own project breed, which I'm getting a lot of enjoyment out of.

    Glad to finally be an active part of the community!
