    Very, very informative for someone who is only at the stage of desiring to keep chickens. Websites and resources were mentioned, all my questions answered, and also loved hearing from folks who currently have chickens. Thanks again!

    Thanks so much Owen for organizing this event! It took us an unreasonable amount of time to find the waterpod, but were so glad when we finally did. Wish we had more time to ask the waterpod people loads of questions. Awesome farms were just that...awesome. So nice and giving with their time and knowledge.

    Thanks,
    Martha

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
