    I live on a small farm in upstate New York where I tend to the chickens every single day. We sell a dozen of eggs for $2.50/ dozen unless a buyer buys 10+ dozens than the price goes down to $2.00/ dozen. There is about 30-45 chickens here. We also have 4 steers whose names are Houdini, Shadow, Mouthy Buddy and Taco. Houdini and Shadow are Dexters. Mouthy Buddy is a black Angus and Taco is a White-Faced Hereford. There is an outside cat named Halloween because of her coloring and an indoor cat named Midnight for her coloring. There's never a boring day on this farm but it's in the country so it does get kind of monotonous day after day.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. I'm betting there's more than a few people here that would love your "monotony" - including myself!

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area -

    All the best

    I joined to be able to have conversations with other farmers or chicken raisers seeing how it gets boring here in the country not having any close neighbors to talk to and learn from.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens - you can always post here and get other chicken folk to respond. You may want to join your state thread to see if any bycers live in your local area - maybe you could meet them face to face and have friends. Just put your state name in the search box and it will come up.
