I’d like to say hello to all the people who have just discovered my blog. For some reason, I have been “discovered”, and my hit-rate has gone through the roof. I’m not sure the source of my new-found popularity, but I’m glad you have stopped by.
Anyone who has toured the blog has noticed that this is not a “cute pictures and caption” type of site. I don’t post as often as I’d like, but my posts are usually pretty full of information that the general public may not be privy to. I have a unique position in that I am a full-time practicing veterinarian for professional egg farmers in Canada and know intimately what happens on the farms that produce the eggs that you find in your grocery store. I also have an interest in backyard flocks and have an idea of the types of people who keep small flocks, and try to help them be successful in their small farming operations. I also have recently finished my Masters degree in Animal Welfare. This is pretty unique because I am very aware and interested in the animal welfare issues surrounding both professional and backyard flocks (yes…there are significant welfare concerns for extensive flocks as well….).
I have been building this blog for about a year and a half, and have enough content now that I think it will be of value and interest to quite a few people. As I said, I’m not sure why the sudden uptick in traffic, but if you are new here, welcome. I hope you find something of value, and thanks for visiting!
