    hello to all.as a new member i am a little lost for getting started.i'm 84yrs old and live in w.v. and moved here from nh 11 yrs ago.we always raised chickens and ducks and geese.when we moved here it took us years to build up our home and land.i love to garden but had to do some reduction in the size of my garden for health reasons,so i will go back to my love of raising chickens,ducks,geese and turkeys.will wait till spring to get started.will still have a small garden and if my better half doesn't object too much might even raise a pig.with the good god willing and i keep on breathing i'll gt r done.that about says it all .

    hello to all,i wish to thank everyone who welcomed me to byc today.sees like i found me another family besides my church brothers and sisters.i will try to be worthy of membership.the last group of birds we grew before moving here we donated to a petting farm[non kill].my wife raised them as if they were our children and had me build a preditor proof coop.they had the free run of our land and no hawk dared to go for them,between our dog [who thought they were his]and my wife they were perfectly safe.it's time now to go turn my compost and recover it.till next time i'll say so long. leo/ and martha.
