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!!!
