(1) I have had chickens in the past. I had some Black Australorps three years ago. One of my kids raised 90 broilers for the Drumwright broiler show last spring. We moved and I am just now getting set up again. I learned a lot last time and I hope to get more into it this time around.
(2) Right now I don't have any birds. I am in the process of building a chicken house now. I hope to avoid some of the errors I made last time.
(3) I am open to different breeds. I will be looking to the heavy breeds to start. I want something dual purpose. I want eggs and meat for the table.
(4) I came across BYC while doing research online.
(5) I also raise pigs that my kids show in 4H and FFA. I also keep rabbits and I want to get into some game birds also.
(6) My Wife and I live in Mannford OK. We have five great kids. I grew up in NE OK, my Grandpa Charles always had chickens and rabbits. He used them to provide both meat and eggs for his family. I hope to pass this experience on to my kids.
(7) I signed up here hoping to find some good local resources.

Hi wd - welcome! I'm in Tulsa and am starting my second flock anew after predators wiped out my clucks last year. Glad you're here!
