Hey Ya'll!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey,

 

Just wanted to introduce myself.  I am Scott and I am relatively new at raising chickens.  We got our four chickens (3 hens 1 rooster) back in December and they have just started laying about a week ago.  My son and I are trying to live more sustainably and eat better without going broke in the process.  It is amazing how much food that is healthier for you is not too healthy on the wallet.  So, we are also trying our hand at gardening this year.  Anyways, I figured I would join and surround myself with people who are smarter than I at chickens.  I have been a long time "browser" of BYC and have gotten inspiration for our coop from the pages of BYC.  If your interested you can check out my coop build on YouTube at the No Budget Homestead. 

 

Looking forward to learning and participating with Ya'll.

 

Scott..

Hi Scott, welcome to BYC!

 

Good luck with the chickens and the garden. If you let your chickens out to free range, watch your garden. I know from experience, they love to eat a lot of the same garden produce as we do!

 

Have fun, thanks for joining us!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
