I'm a reformed city boy who now enjoys life on a 41 acre farm. My wife, daughter and I have a growing flock of 32 chickens (its hard for me to count the 4 silkies as chickens, they're more entertainment), a pig, bees and soon sheep! We raised out hens from hatchlings and now they enjoy free ranging on over an acre of pasture. I've been lurking here for a long time, now i figured I'd join and contribute. I've learned a lot over the past 7 months.
