Hello all! I was born in Salem Oregon and was relocated to So Cal when i was 9. I am now in my 30's with a family of five and another child on the way. A year ago we left Ca and moved to NC for more affordable living and since have purchased a home on 10 acres. We are learning the ins and outs of small farming one critter at a time including 17 or so chickens. I look forward to honing my bird raising skills with help from this forum!
