    hey! i am new here and in a few months i will be getting 3 dozen chickens. i am only keeping one because they are for a science fair exsperiment were i will be taking 10 of the 36 and injecting them with vitamin a. then take another 10 and injecting those with vitamin c. then leaving the rest as a control. i want to see if vitamins effect the growth rate in chicken embryo's. the one that i am keeping is going to live in the house, cant wait =3 its gonna be one spoiled chicken! [​IMG] i am a honors biology student, and a freshmen in high school and i am trully pleased i found this forum. [​IMG]

    That is so great!! I wish my kids would take an interest like you have. I hope you teach your teacher a thing or two! [​IMG] Let us know how your experiment turns out. I loved science and biology in school. My boys..they have graduated one is in concrete and the other is into construction. I have 2 more in school. Ben has no interest in anything but, hunting. and Lyndsey wants to work with Shamoo when she grows up!! [​IMG] Are you planning on going to College? I sure hope so. That would be great. [​IMG] DJ Keep me up dated!!

    Quote:I am sure that you will succeed at what ever you choose to do. You seem to have a really great goal for yourself. I wanted to be a vet at your age. I wanted to work with horses. They are a beautiful animal. I hope you don't ever allow any one or any thing to take your focus or dreams away from you. You stay focused on what you want to accomplish and you do it!! You'll make a great vet or teacher or maybe you'll do both!! [​IMG] DJ
