It's busy time so I'll keep it to a few points about myself. -Have kept chickens for years now on and off, this is my 4th flock. I have 10 fine ladies at full production! -My name says it all...not allowed to have 'em but enforcement is through complaints. This is the first year the neighbours have found out. 3 1/2 year olds can not keep a secret, bless her heart. -Looking at raising them for a living...just not caged. There are no suppliers for chicks, ready to lay or processing available in the area. -Urban, for now -Location: Thunder Bay, Ontario. Looking for other renegades doing this in the region. -Hope to learn lots here. This is the first year I'm going to keep them over the winter (-20 to -40 at times) Off to peruse the discussions, then it's time to go wake my girls and let the ladies out for the day.
