    Hi, my name is doug and I live with my wife joanne on the fraser plateau in bc. [where all the fires are right now]

    I've had a chicken or two off and on for a good 60 years or so. More a horsepacker sort, though I'm retired now

    [closer to rigor mortis maybe?] and have been grooving on a home flock of harcourt sex links // brown leghorns

    which are decimated down to about 9 now. We picked up 50 cornish X meatbirds last week, and are hoping for an

    extended warm spell. We were hoping for 50 layer chicks so we could sell pullets in the spring [I sell pairs $30 with a

    neat, light weight tractor if they want, for good bucks] but no western canadian suppliers could produce so we are

    sol for next year. I'm an ecosystem analyst by training and bent and have to rigorously police my tendency to preach

    doom and gloom, so consider yourselves warned, and feel free to knock me off my stump if that's ever required, ok?

    This looks like a nice forum, nice folks, thanks for bein here.

    Welcome! There's certainly a lot of information here and it sounds like you'll be able to add a bit yourself. Enjoy, but be aware, the forum can be addictive. [​IMG]
