Hey everyone, I'm new to BYC and to chicken raising at all. I started in the spring with 8 fuzzballs (Road Island Reds) and a cool chicken coop that I built ( I'm a homebuilder with nothing to build). My wife and I have 3 children (all married and moved out) and they gave us 8 wonderful Grandchildren. It's Fall now and we are already getting lots of eggs that our Grandchildren are happy to help gather. Looking forward to learning alot from this site. Sorry about the "Roll Tide" thing, I just had to... We have lived in Alabama for 34 years and we love our team.
