:welcome: to :PTO:
Now one of the rules is you have to post pictures of your chicks when they arrive!
Feel free to ask any questions nobody here will mind. We were all new to poultry once so don't be shy.
Also we like to hear about any other animals you have or any gardening, crafts etc.
I think that @Happy is fairly near to you?
Beltsville Small White turkeys.
Mutt chickens for eggs

Hello and welcome. We are about an hour away from each other - I'm near Stayner/Wasaga Beach. Pretty sure I've been through Markdale! I started with 10 day old Barred Rocks from Frey's hatchery 8 years ago! So exciting!!! Pictures are a must!

Hi LiviH! Welcome to PTO!
Same as everyone above says - this is a great place to ask questions, get help, etc.
In memory of our first rooster, I wrote and published a Kindle eBook on Amazon, "Humphrey, the Rooster: A true story". Humphrey is my current avatar.
