    Hi everyone [​IMG] Does anyone remember me ??? the crazy lady with the camera,lol. my gosh it's grown here, lots of new folks around.

    I'm in northeast Louisiana, have a flock of 100 free ranging chickens. I started out 7 years ago with 6 production reds, by the next spring, 15 Buff Orps, the following spring, mix of Turkens,BSL's.. after that I've lost count,lol.
    I do have 4 BCM's from Ruth & some assorted bantams... that keep hiding their nests & going on like rabbits [​IMG]
    We live far out in the country, my family has 10 acres with a beautiful waterfront. We don't have any close neighbors & behind our place are hundreds of acres of farmland.

    I've been through the ringer & then some,lol. I turned 41 this year & my gallbladder started giving me trouble, finally had surgery in June & now my arch on my left foot is falling. [​IMG] If it's not one thing it's another.
    I spent most of the summer trying to keep the chickens & my garden from dying from the heat... it was the hottest summer I can ever remember.
    we finally got some relief today is the first cool day (70's) we've had since I don't know when. I sure feel alot better now, hot weather is depressing to me.

    yall take care, Miriam [​IMG]

    Hi! I'm fairly new on here but I'm truly addicted. WoW!! 100 free ranging birds! I wish I could turn mine loose but I've too many dogs coming in and out. I just visited family in Georgia and it was brutal!! I never knew the south was so hot. We're experiencing a heat wave right now in So. Cal. So glad we don't have the humidity though.

    Welcome back!!
