    Hello!

    I finally decided to create a profile after lurking for the past couple of weeks. About a month ago, I was living in SA TX, looking for a corporate job... and now I'm running a mini-farm! Unforeseen circumstances put me in charge of a small flock of chickens (I believe they are Orpingtons and Black Laced Red Wyandotte?) and a few bantams (one Silkie hen, one Golden Laced Polish hen, a Frizzle rooster, and a black and white rooster I can't quite name). I also have a herd of goats, but that is talk for another site. I have had to gain a lot of knowledge very quickly since one of the Wyandottes are brooding on fertilized eggs[​IMG], but hopefully I can learn much more here!

    Thanks and have a great one!

    Life sure takes funny twists sometimes, but as long as you're enjoying yourself, that's the main thing.

    Some members (like me) have goats and other animals...those non-poultry animals get chatted about here:

    Thanks, trail rider! A few of my chicks actually hatched last night [​IMG] I'm so excited! Brooder is still sitting on the rest of the eggs, so hopefully there will be more coming.
