Hello from Talkeetna Alaska

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, we just bought our first house with 33acres and it came with a co-op already on it.
Seriously considering getting chickens for eggs and meat. Plus maybe a few ducks.
I have 4 kid's and a couple dogs. I'm not sure how to go about getting everything set up for poultry and how to explain to my autistic son that they are food not cuddlie furry friends.
I've also never had birds before so I'm a little nervous.... Lol
Nice to meet everyone:-)

Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock.   Could your son have one chicken pet(not to be eaten)?   Pets can really "bring out," autistic children.

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-

The Learning Center is a great place to start. Your state thread members may be of help to you also...just type Alaska in the search box and your state thread should come up.

 

I agree with drumstick diva...maybe keep 1 special chick for your son, chickens make great pets.

 

It's nice to have you here!

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
