Hello everyone! I've been visiting the BackYardChickens.com site for years after reading an article in a magazine that recommended it. I chose to join now because I've been working on planning my "dream home" and subsequent "dream homestead". =) Even though building our home is still almost 10 years away, my boyfriend and I have already begun to plan and save our pennies.
I hope to raise free range chickens for eggs (enough to feed a family of six, with a few extra to share with friends and neighbors), 3 to 5 turkeys for meat, a Guernsey cow for milk and perhaps a goat because I've heard they're very good at keeping other animals company.
So glad to be here!
