Hello, I am new to this BYC. I am learning this "empty nest" thing. Both of my kids were very involved in the 4-H and FFA, where they both earned scholarships to help with college. Yes, I am very proud of both of them. They showed sheep,pigs and steers, this kept us all very busy. Now that they are out of high school all the showing has come to a end. That leaves me with alot of extra time on my hands. I have been ordering chicks and watching them grow, now we are getting our first eggs and I could not be happier. I have 13 Barred Rock hens and 13 Buff's, and am looking forward to ordering another variety very soon.
