    I am so excited to be a part of such a large community of chicken lovers!
    I've waited to have my own flock for a couple years and we finally took the plunge, my Love built the 'girls' a Chicken Cottage and our little flock is doing very well. We just have to put the roof on.

    I look forward to learning all I can because I somehow got myself volunteered to lead a "Basics of Raising Chickens" class!
    Have a great day.

    Sure! I kinda posted them backwards! We started the system last November and now it's taken off! I have cucumbers, some canteloupe and some sunflowers are coming up.
    I live in San Antonio and am part of an Aquaponics group.

    Very nice. I live in Central Texas, and like to mess around with building hydroponic systems.

    I've thought about doing that but I dug myself a pond a few years ago and it just made sense to use the fish poop to feed the grow beds. It's been a blast to go out there and not have to do anything like pull weeds! The cukes grow fabulously.
    What's your favorite part of hydroponics? Anything we can do to be more self sustainable is worth the effort!
