I live in a rural area between Rosamond and Mojave in the High Desert of California. The kids are out of the house and it is me, my wife, her sister, the 4 cats, the Chug, and the Basset Bubba. I do not like the way things in the world is going and wanted to start to do something to prepair myself and the family in case of the worst. So, I thought I could start raising chickens for their eggs and meat. That is what has brought me here at this time. I have started mt quest to gather knowledge on how to raise chickens. Wish me luck.
