    I'm fairly new to BYC and today I met a long time member, but can't remember his user info. From West Virginia and raising Marans. Got a new slightly used IBC container. If you see this post, please hit me with a private message.

    For all others i'm a real newbie... Absolutely clueless--but in for a Penney, in for a pound. Planning on ordering my birds early spring to start up on my new farm in central TN. Building a 12X24 brooder, five chicken tractors, egg mobile for chickens and one for ducks, plus a small mobile shelter for my Turkeys. First run plan on adding both Pheasants and Quail to the mix...

    I plan on working with heritage breeds and playing with many different breeds initially to see which do best in my environment. Those who perform well will continue to lay and be repopulated, those who don't, well there's always the stew pot. Hope to offer both brown and white eggs to the market place as well as duck eggs. I've been asked to consider quail eggs too, but not sure i'm ready to go there.
