Frustrated farmer here, new to keeping chickens and looking forward to the experience. In today's economy, I have come to treasure the values that my parents instilled in me as a child. To grow my own food and not be so reliant on spending money needlessly for things I can do for myself. My intent is to become self sufficent as much as possible.
I grew up loving animals and gardening, and now I want to put all these years of learning and practice to some good use.
And yes I am a retired clergyman, due to health issues.
