My name is Asa and I'm a 29 year old career firefighter from Arkansas. I grew up spending my summers on my grandparents farm when I was young and a couple of years ago decided to become more self sufficient. Among other things, I began raising my own laying hens. I have a motley crew of hens and roos consisting of Buff Orps, New Hampshires, RRR, Barred Rocks and most recently a pair of Silkie Naked Neck pullets. I also have a whole host of bantams, 2 ducks and a pair of turkeys. Ive been successful raising them to this point(minus a coyote problem or two) doing things the old school way I grew up learning, but I look forward to learning more modern and inventful ways of keeping a happier and healthier flock. I look forward to talking to everyone, Asa Harvey.
