    I am a 9 yr old chicken farmer with 6 yrs of chicken raising experience! My first introduction into poultry was by mistake when our local feed supply store had chicks arrive that had no home....my mom said "Yes" and from then to now I have grown to love chickens and have tried many differant breeds. I now have Layers as well as some specialty breeds such as, Maylays, Red Jungle fowl, Frizzles, d-uccle` guinea fowl hens, ameracauna's, cochins, red shouldered yokahama, Polish crested, standard and one bantam, silver laced wyandottes and many more......including my first and favorite Little red hen who is now 6 yrs old.[​IMG] I have also signed up for my first year in 4-H and am working toward a poultry project, so far, so good! I got my first incubator and hatched my first and most successful batch of chicks in my kindergarden class and still have some of those hens as well. I hope this site and forum will help me become a better chicken farmer and look forward to hearing from other members and sharing my chicken stories.
