Good morning flock! Welcome to a bright new year. I used to keep a variety of birds (chickens, ducks, a goose, some quail) and I really did enjoy it. Due to circumstances of life, sold the house and now in transition. Looking forward to keeping birds again, probably focusing on some quail and a small flock of chickens (I like the bantam feather feet). Making some plans for future spaces, coop, yard design etc, depending on where I move to, and also looking into supplies and suppliers of things and birds/eggs etc. My roots started in rural country, and I grew up on a beef farm that also had chickens, geese, turkeys around. A variety of experience and stories too. Looking forward to getting to know many in the community and who's where etc. Also a past member of the EBBA (Eastern Bird Breeders Association), and only bowed out due to lack of time on our end. I love birds and don't feel complete without a wee flock to tend and enjoy. Someday soon....will be back in the feathers... Cheers everyone! Jenny PS, my avatar is a wild Trumpter swan. I took the pic in Victoria BC in 2011. He/she came cruising over to see if I had any snacks when I was down at the lagoon to see the migratory birds. He was close enough to touch and it was very exciting to have a huge wild bird so close!
