Hello from northwest Minnesota, land of the dancing sky (it dances because it is too cold to stand still). My name is Bob. I learn something new all the time from BYC, yes, I'm a former lurker. Our chickens are having all the bad luck, I'm learning on them. We have some Silkies, Buff Orpingtons, White Laced Wyandottes, some tophats and some whatnots. I appreciate all the info and help from this website. maybe I can join in.
