Hello! I am in southwest Florida. It is, of course, another wet day here. I have ham & beans in the crockpot, bread to go with it, and of course olive oil butter! The chickens are in my handmade chicken house (of which I have made two) to get out of todays inclement weather. I am fairly new to chicken raising, but boy am I having fun. I have 4 chickens in my house and 1 newly hatched chick. I have a small vegetable garden and an accompanying herb garden. I plan on a couple of fruit trees as well (dwarf ones). It's just me and my critters here on my mini farm. I have one daughter who lives in the next town with my grandchildren (2) and her husband.
