    Hi everyone!! I am a new member from South Arkansas. I have been hatching, raising, breeding, feeding and loving chickens for years. My husband built me a homemade very large incubator for Christmas many years ago. (He did it so I would stop wanting more Kids) ever since then I have been hatching turkeys, guineas, ducks, chickens and brooding them in my big garden tub!!! He might regret building the incubator by now, you think!!

    My husband and I raised 3 kids who are on their own now and have 1 daughter (11) left at home and we homeschool. I work part-time at a rural hospital and guess what --I birth babies!!!! I have mainly raised chickens for egg production for family and friends but my daughter has recently became interested in showing chickens though the local 4-H . We have a lot to learn!! We have 2 pair of almost show quality birds to start with--- 1 pair of black-tail white Japanese bantams and 1 pair of light brahma bantams. We are very active in 2 -4-H clubs and various other "social" activities.

    Glad to be here!!

    Welcome from Seattle!

    Sounds like you are very busy! There are plenty of people around here who are involved in 4H (I am too, but Dog 4H, so I'm no help). Ask questions and someone is sure to help you out. [​IMG]
