    just an interdiction to the BYC Family. Thanks for the add. Just Retired at 54 after a motorcycle accident. So I decided to move to the mountains in Ga. So I have close to a Acre. Started buying and raising chickens last year then bought some guineas and some rabbits and some ducks. Everything’s been going pretty good since this is the first time doing this I want to be self-sufficient and be able to put meat in my freezer and have eggs. I don’t eat a lot at eggs so I give my eggs to my neighbors and I have a family of 7, their chickens haven’t been producing much so I’ve been trying to give them my eggs to help them out. I’ve only lost a few baby chicks last year and I few Gennies. I try hard to raise them up every time I lose one I see $$ fly off my dinner table. So as of now I have six Rabbits seven Gennies and Around 14 ducks and 30 or so chickens. I do keep myself busy also three cats to two dogs. So far it’s been a good learning experience. So again thanks for the welcome
