    I grew up on a farm so we had chickens from the time I came into the world until I left home at 18 to go to school.

    Here I am, 32 years later with chickens again... my wife tells everyone it's my mid-life crisis.

    Better than a new corvette or looking for a younger specimen.

    My family had a chicken house that raised birds for consumption. I was even born with a birthmark shaped like a chicken. My mother says its cause she hated them so much...

    Between friends and family, chickens have been my friend for many years. However, I didn't have my own flock until 2004.

    Chickens were always around me as a kid. Worked on several farms. Chickens have always been in the blood. I got my 3 girls a year ago when I found out I could have them in my backyard....

    Quote:Why thank you... As I grew up, it stretched and looks more like a burn from a motorcycle. (It's on the lower part of my right leg. Bet you didn't think you'd ever know that much about me)
