    Hello from a Harley riding grandmother that is trying to make her home into a self sufficient plot of heaven. I am a born and raised city gal who has never met a chicken in her 64 years other than a grocery store. Now I can hear the sighs and rolling eyeballs. But bear with me. I am determined to take my country one and 1/2 acres to a new level of life with me new hobbies of natural medicine, diy cleaning supplies, and bath products. I love to cook by scratch and have a hubby of 42 years that is supportive of my dreams. The herb and vegetable gardens are doing nicely and will combine these with the chickens. We have 143 mature trees and a variety of fruit trees planted. Yeah, I probably need a reality check but my cats and I are lonely for some new friends.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Everyone has to start somewhere (and sometime). :eek:) Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. As far as getting chickens goes, do you have a breed preference?

    [​IMG] Go glad you joined us.

    Raising your own flock is gonna be a great adventure. Probably easier than learning to ride that Harley..[​IMG] The key to your success is that your DH is supportive.

    There's loads of helpful information and folks on site. Visit the learning centers, ask questions. We're here to help.

    My DH is also a Harley rider…[​IMG]
