    From time to time we like to get a feel for who is on BYC. The question we've been wondering lately: How many of our peeps are really new to raising chickens and how many are old-timers?

    So, please take our poll and answer the question:

    I started with layers almost four years ago and started raising small batches of meat birds for our family about 3 years ago. We started a business raising meat birds in March of this year, so we've been doing higher volume production for only 7 months.

    I've been raising chickens for 6 years, and have 1 of my original flock remaining. (I read that she counts as an "ancient chicken" somewhere... [​IMG])
