    Hi, my name is Amanda. I have been raising poultry for the last 18 years in Michigan. I have been active on different homesteading message boards, but I am overall new to BYC. It looks like a great place to learn more about poultry as well as to help others who are still learning about the things that I am experienced in.

    I have raised a lot of different varieties of chickens. I have some experience with turkeys, guineas, ducks and geese. I also raise Jersey cows, Nubian goats and polypay sheep.

    I am a single homesteading mom who also works for Meyer Hatchery as a customer service Rep.

    Hello Amanda and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us.

    This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in that link. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.

    Best wishes
