It's been interesting to say the least!

    Just a little note to those of you we know or have talked to here on BYC.

    Rob and I have been away from the forum for a while. Trying to regroup after a very strange and interesting summer and fall. So many good and bad things have happened and we wanted to share with those that might be interested or just wonder "Hey, where has Schultz been?"
    After the 2009 Chickenstock here in Indiana, we of course, had to re-coop and get back to normal. Rob was laid off again and I finally found a really great job. I canned quite a bit and we pretty much have been taking care of our birds. At the time of the chickenstock, we had over 50 chickens and 2 turkeys. We decided to cut back and now have about 30 chickens. We have been selling them and just this past weekend we had to give Mr. Fancy Pants to someone because he flogged Rob and we just can't take the chance of someone getting hurt. He will be dearly missed but has the best home now. We got together with Attack_Chicken for a 4-H show last Saturday and our birds did fairly well. We actually sold 2 of the 4 boys we took to show. We got to see many faces that were at the Chickenstock which really made us feel good. We have many more chickens to sell, so watch for our ads! We are now just planning on concentrating on just a few breeds right now and hope to be able to show some of those real soon.
    Well, that's really it in a nutshell, I don't want to ramble too much even though it is a random rambling thread. I just wanted to let you all know we are still alive and chickenin'!

    I just want to say Schultz is one of the nicest people I have ever met. She has helped me through everything going on with my flock within the past few months. I don't know where I would have been without her! [​IMG]

    Well, howdy, stranger! Glad you're back. I sure know what it's like to clean house and downsize. Hope life is more manageable for you now.
