Hey BYC!!! My name is Rand Shaw and I am from Columbia, TN. I had no idea this site existed!!! I have already met some amazing people!! I was raised with chickens all my life, but now I have my own farm and gonna start out with my own flock! After much much much research I finally decided on Orpingtons! I also found out that quality stock is very hard to find. I want to throw out a HUGE THANK YOU to Dawn at dawn on the farm for ALL your help with my "Orp Quest", "MissPrissy" for helping me with my first batch of Orpington eggs, and Torie from Alaska for getting me in touch with MissPrissy!! That is what is soooooo great about this site!!! I have never met these people, and ALL of them have gone waaaay out of their way to help me get exactly what I am looking for! Thanks again Ladies!!! AWESOME site!!!! Congratulations on hitting 25,000 members!!! I can see why!!!
