    Hi there! My name is Eric and I hail from Holton, IN.

    I only have a few feathered friends right now, a black copper maran rooster and 3 golden laced wyandotte hens, but I can see the obsession already. Really its my brother's fault... He started raising them at his farm and then he got me started at my place. It has been a wonderful treat. The eggs are fantastic too!!

    I love everything about them and can't get enough reading material in my hands. They are also great therapy when I come home from a tough day at work. Hopefully I am not the only one here that ocd's about my birds, otherwise I would sound insane to the rest of you. Oh well... my place is a happy one. LOL!!

I found this one and thought it was hilarious. I really like everything I have seen on this site. I'm sure I will be cruising through here quite a bit. LOL!!
