    Just joined Backyard Chickens - I raised chickens about 30 years ago and am looking into getting back into it. Looking around and reading. :)

    [​IMG] so glad you have joined us and that you are thinking about getting back into flock raising.

    There's a lot of helpful information in the Learning Center to help you "brush up" and get things going.

    Good luck with all.

    Shuri, if you had chickens 30 years ago you can't be
    a newbie.

    You would be an old-new guy.

    Welcome to the flock.

    Newark...Didn't there use to be a Frontier Ranch there? Close by?
    I know National Trails Racetrack is in your area. Been there enough.

    Welcome,

    Spook

    Nice to meet you Shuri. Glad you are coming back to the chicken side. I would imagine after 30 years you will find a lot more breeds or varieties, that were not available back then.

    There is a Frontier Ranch in Pataskala area - about 5 miles from Kirkersville (National Trails). Thanks for the welcome. I will have to relearn what I may have forgotten over the last 30 years. I miss playing with the chickens :)

    I used to have a friend that lived in' Pataskala' - wouldn't forget a name like that. Welcome to Backyard chickens.
