Merit Badge Awardees (click for latest awards)

My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Denise Thompson!!!

Denise Thompson (levisgrammy, #43) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a Beginner Level Backyard Farmer Merit Badge!

“We started our own flock originally by purchasing chicks from a hatchery. We had Black Austrolorps to start and used their eggs to hatch a flock using an incubator given us by my father.

The present flock are Black Sex Link and they were purchased from a hatchery. They enjoy free-ranging as much as possible and are fed organic feed. We enjoy about 6-7 big brown eggs every day this time of year.

We will be enlarging the flock this Spring.”
