    Hello folks! Just wanted to say hello and introduce ourselves. I joined a few months back, but have been using this site for years for information- you guys are so awesome, that it's hard to even come up with a question to ask that hasn't already been answered [​IMG] Every little emergency we've had so far has been solved without even having to make a post!

    My husband and I bought 16 acres in 2011 and have been working hard to get our farmstead/business up and running. We're pretty small scale right now, and we're hoping just to feed ourselves with a homestead setup. But man-oh-man. I ordered chickens at the beginning of 2012 and have gone a bit crazy over them. They are pretty much my favorite things, aside from a good tomato!

    Anyway, we are loving the country life! I grew up in KY, and my husband if from Melbourne, Australia. We're living in a shabby little trailer right now and hopefully will start building a house this spring.

    Thanks for all the help you guys have already provided, and all the info. I'm sure I'll keep learning! [​IMG]

    Thanks everybody! We've got some welsumers, BO, RIR, EEs, BA, BCM, BR, SS, leghorn, and some mutts. We've got about 60 birds, and hope to get up to 100 in a couple of years :)
