We built our place six years ago and have worked to expand our clearing on woody five acres for a sustainable lifestyle. We have a nice sized chicken yard amongst the trees with a small pond for when I have ducks. For clearing we temporarily housed a couple of goats and borrowed a DR brusher. Both worked fine! Going on five years of chickens with a few new additions this year. I would like to start hatching dual purpose/meat birds to process and put up. Plans on fencing an acre or two for future calf pasture. Oh the many plans we have!
