    Hi guys!

    I am so excited to be here amongst my poultry brethren! Though I have lived on a farm for most of my life, I only recently got into chickens. When I was a teen I worked in commercial poultry houses but my new found obsession with chickens didn't really spring to life until early this year when I decided to buy an incubator. I rounded up eggs from some family and friends and hatched them - 40 out of 42 eggs hatched my first try!!! I'm hooked and totally obsessed now, lol.

    So far I have about 80 birds - Black Austrolorps, Grey gamefowl, a few mutts, and a few bantams. My family and friends are pretty much sick of hearing about them, lol, so I thought I would seek out some like minded folks. I am so glad to be here and hope you all (and your flocks!) are having a great day!

    Greetings from Arkansas,
    Bobby

    Don't get me wrong - I can totally have conversations about things other than chickens...I just choose not to.

    Thanks so much for the warm welcome, guys, I really appreciate it!

    I didn't mention it in my first post but the hens from my first hatch just started laying this week! I am so excited, it is soooo rewarding to go from an egg to an egg. I've learned lots from lurking around these boards, it's such a boost to have that knowledge pay off in the form of breakfast!

    Hi Bobby!

    Welcome to BYC from Ohio! I know that feeling.....if you talk chickens too much...you can see your friend's or familie's eyes glaze over.....they are soooo bored!

    Well you won't find that here!

    Take care and glad you joined,

    Sharon
