    Yea, I know, your thinkin, where the hell is this that, and why do I care! Well I don't blame you, because its the only place
    I could find where I could afford to buy a home at my age (69) after the coal I was leasing from sent me a letter saying I had
    90 days to buy the 10 acres I was on at $169,000, or move! Well living on Social Security just didn't for that. So we were
    lucky to find a place, but now we need to try to go back to our roots, way back>>>> to raising a few chickens for their eggs.
    We have forgot everything over the last 50 years, so like our grandkids, we are hear to learn.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
