Hello, my name is Kasey, I recently got myself several hens who will be laying very soon. I have done as much reading on chickens as it is possible to do, and now the only thing left is to get experience I can't get without owning chickens. I'm actually starting a whole mini-farm. I've been a gardener all my life, and I started a rabbit farm when I was fifteen, and while it was quite profitable, had to sell it when I was twenty so we could move. I am hoping that one thing at a time, the only things I will have to buy are the things that I can't grow for myself, in one way or another, and I figure a good place to start with that is A - the familiar territory of veggi-gardens and rabbits, and the relatively new ground of chickens.
