    I'm Greg and new to chicken keeping but so far so good lol

    I have found this site to be extremely useful while building a coop and run so thought I would join up now that we have chicks. 60 years old, relocated to the country 3 years ago with my wife of 38 years and our handicapped son. Have a nice garden and now 25 new chicks.

    Hello Greg and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Wow, sounds awesome! You are never too old the start keeping chickens. Lots of us are no longer spring chickens either. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I am glad you have found BYC so useful in the past. We sure are bursting at the seams with knowledge! Lots of us lurked before joining too.

    Well, make yourself at home here. If you have any questions about things, feel free to ask.

    Welcome to our roost! :)
