    My husband and I have raised chickens, rabbits, pigs, and cattle for over 20 years in OH. We have raised multiple varieties of chickens with Araucanas being my favorite.

    We now live in northern GA at the base of the Appalachian Mts. where we now raise only rabbits and chickens. Our two sons, ages 23 and 26 live in this area near us. My husband is retired and I'm a school teacher.

    I love to read, hunt, garden, farm, and teach.

    A friend told me about BackYard Chickens. I am excited to meet fellow chicken lovers.

    Have a wonderful day,

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    We are so glad you could join our community!

    Love the Appalachian Mountains! The Rockies may be grand but the Appalachians are old, deep and full of history. I once hiked the Appalachian Trail when I was in my 20's. Walked from northern NC to upper PA. Wow, the Blue Ridge Parkway was fabulous!

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock!
