Hi, my name is Miranda. My husband has visited this site often for advice when we first started talking about getting chickens. We started with 6 layers. We are working our way up to having our own little homestead. We have 4 children and we homeschool. We are thinking about getting meat chickens this year. We have spent quite some time on here today trying to absorb all the information we could, so I figured I would go ahead and introduce myself. Thanks for all the great information!
