    Hey Everyone!

    Wanted to drop by and introduce ourselves. We are a small family farm in Michigan. Where we raise poultry, feeder pigs, and milking goats. Our chickens are used as duel purpose birds. They also provide us with fertile eggs for hatching.

    Even though we are not newbies we still have questions from time to time and most searches took us to this website. Every time I found the search results very informative and for the most part accurate. It is also interesting to see what has and hasn't worked for others. I joined in hopes of learning, networking and just getting to know like minded families and individuals.

    Currently our flock includes 37 Chickens
    Rhode Island Red
    White Rock
    Black Star
