Howdy! My Wife and I just started raising our backyard chickens with a DIY coop and some elbow grease! We have 3 hens and 1 cockerel. We literally just started so we havent fallen into any practices yet - so please send me all the advice you can! Would love to hear from anyone else in the area as well. We are also starting our very own fiber farm , We are raising Jersey wooley rabbits as of now but plan to expand that into Cotton , Sheep , and Angora rabbits. I love everything about our country life and would never give it up ! Thanks ! Mike.
