    New to this forum, just wanted to post an introduction. My name is Brett, I live in Des Moines, Iowa, married, 32, with 5 kids. I've got a flock of about 25 chickens. Mostly wellsummers, americaunas, and blue and black marans. Until just recently I didn't know the were so many people out there who has a chicken hobby like I do. Pretty cool site, I'm glad I heard about it.
