    After leaving the ranch and living in the industrialized world for 40 + years I am returning to a life I realize now I should have never left! When I was growing up I hated ; gathering eggs milking cows, slopping hogs,pulling calves, all those things that happen on a ranch. Now I can't wait to get back to it. And I'm starting out with chickens & vegetables

    Well chickens are a lot easier than pulling calves or slopping hogs. Glad you joined the BYC flock [​IMG]

    Hi and [​IMG] Glad you joined the flock! Glad you decided to the start keeping chickens again! Chickens are a fun and easy hobby (easier than pulling calves or slopping hogs as @drumstick diva said [​IMG]) Have a great time on here! Never hesitate to ask questions (you probably know a lot more than I could ever answer since you have had a lot more experience!)
    Enjoy! [​IMG]
