Hi all, I'm Joe I live in CT with My wife of 20 years Trish and our three children Rachael, Laura, and Matt. We just added 6 Buff Orpington Chicks before Easter to the mix and it has been intresting watching the development. I didn't know much starting out but between a class with my daughter and this web site I am confident that I am way over my head. Just kidding..... I am looking forward to getting home to see the change since I am active duty Coast Guard and currently deployed. This was something the kids can do while dads underway and makes the time go faster.
