    Hello all.
    My name is Jason and I have been wanting to get chickens, goat and sheep for a while now and I think its time to start. I live in Denham Springs, Louisiana outside of the city limits. I am either a farmer at heart or a survivalist by any means. Some of the things I know and have done are carpentry, plumbing, electrical, very light auto mechanic work, knifesmithing, swordsmithing, learning coding in Java and now ... farming.

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? Yes, no chickens right now.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    none

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    I am seeking Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rock, and maybe another breed but I have not decided on that one yet. I am taking suggestions.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    A long time ago I did a search and found you all easily but was only researching. Even then you all have helped me out a lot which is why I am becoming a member now. You all are great help by the way.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    swordsmithing, kifesmithing, carpentry, basically working with my hands. I am soon to be a pastor but can help anyone with any questions or study of the Bible now. Just ask in a message.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I am married (Jill) with two kids (Colston 7, Eden 9). I am not working right now because of a fully torn left rotator cuff and an almost fully torn right rotator cuff. I am not one to push Jesus on anyone but will gladly talk with anyone about Him if they want more information. I stand firm in my faith and am unwavering.

    (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community?
    Look back at #4. It's been about 3 years since I first say BYC. I gave it no second though and clicked off of the forum. It was not the information I was seeking at the time. A year ago, I saw BYC again and spent some time and it was then I realized that it truly WAS the information I was seeking the first time.

    Thanks. You all have been helping me since before I was a member and God kept bringing me right back to you all. So, I figured I would sign up and have fun. Thanks for having me.

    Welcome to BYC, Jason! :frow

    Fantastic to see that God and Google are on our side in the matter of recruits. :lol: Also, what an awesome path you're taking as an aspiring pastor! :D

    Here's hoping that you find our community to be overflowing with all the poultry info you could ever be in need of- and maybe you'll make a few lasting acquaintances along the way. :highfive:
