My husband and I are homesteaders here in upstate NY. We have 32 acres and this is a maple syrup farm. We built our own place here from our own forest. We live complely off grid with solar and wind. 20 years here. Just got chickens again. A beautiful rooster and 4 of his ladies. A young friend had too many and he was going to put Rhett in the pot for being aggressive. Got there just in time. They were too crowded and he was being a rooster. Fine now. I hold him and pet him and tell him how handsome is. The girls settled right down and are laying. I had my cousin name them as she's in the city and can't have any. Time to go sit with them while my very elderly corgi is napping and the cats are snoozing with the wood stove going. My husband is at the sap house boiling syrup.

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

Welcome to the forum.  I'd also love to see photos of your place, I bet it's beautiful where you are.  What sort of chickens did you get?

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run. Bring on the pictures! wee.gif
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
