Welcome aboard :)
I spent much of my teenage years raising chickens in a farm belonging to my Aunt and Uncle in Weldon (near Faison, Roanoke Rapids) 16,000 in 8 weeks and start all over. It truly was interesting.
Anyway - just wanted to welcome you to our forums - I do my best to stay away from "MY FORUMS" or other personal possessive terms about the website - without members this site would be just another beekeeping site, but with them, it is one of the friendliest places I know to go.
Quick side note: many of the members now get together on VOICE CHAT and we play interactive hi-res games like Tiger Woods Gold, Nascar Racing and soon to com some other multiplayer games.
But the big point is that we can talk and type LIVE TIME - and for those who don't have a mic or use an operating system where voice doesn't work well, we have TEXT CHAT that actually SPEAKS in a computerized voice for the member so he/she can participate equally as well.
Thanks for joining, have fun here and good Wintering
