I was born in a family that practiced subsistence farming. Early in life, my parents taught us how to appreciate the land and animals that give us food. 

My aim in starting this blog is to connect with poultry keepers around the world, share best practices in poultry farming while sharing details and information about our beloved poultry breeds.
