    I have a 3 year old and 9 month old who both love chickens andand helping me in the garden. I stay home now, but I spent about 10 years as a Biochemist. Enjoying life a bit closer to nature these days.

    I actually joined because a thread explaining genetics (of sex-linked) was incorrect and that part of me is still strong and I can't handle inaccuracies....lol
