    Hey everyone,

    I am not exactly new to raising chickens.
    but then again, I am not really a seasoned pro either.

    this is my 4th year rasing chickens.
    right now I have about 15 white leghorns, and 5 rhode island reds.

    I also have a couple of geese, 5 ducks, 3 dogs, and 5 cats.

    eventually I plan on getting some goats, maybe a miniature cow or two.
    and of course, lots more chickens.
    I want to turn this place into a working ranch for kids with disabilities.
    but that is later on down the road.

    I found this forum via a random google search.
    it seems like such an awsome place,
    I am really looking foward to reading everything, and getting an idea of what is what.

    I am really interested in anything I can do to do to make my feathered freinds more comfortable.
    I really liked the home made incubators I saw on one of the pages.
    and of course I am always interested in predator control.

    enough rambling.
    thanks for creating this place,
    I am off to read!

    take care!

    Just wanted to say hi to Colorado Cowgirl
    from Bennett Co.
    Wife and I just started raising birds again. We raised birds about 20 yrs busy with kids, school, sports etc, Well now the kids are grown and gone and the wife wanted to raise birds again. We hope to get some ducks and new birds come spring.
    This is good site to learn, ask questions etc.
    take care
