    hello to everyone! I'm new to the site - had a little play around in the anything goes section of the forum last night [​IMG]

    About me: I'm hoping that a move to a house with a garden will allow me to get my hens! My wife and I currently in an apartment so it's a no goer right now but I figured that I'd learn as much as I can before hand. My longer term goal (say 10 years) is to be self sufficient. Well, at least as much as is possible; keep own animals for meat, eggs and milk, grow vegetables/fruit and produce energy from the ground and wind. that's the dream!

    sorry, rambling here. HELLO!

    Derek:)

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from North MS!!!! Just long term plan is the same as me and my husbands! We just bought a house in the country on 5 acres, we got chickens 8 months ago and I started gardening in the spring, we want to be self sufficient so we don't have to depend on the government, sorry I am starting to ramble now, lol. Well you came to the right place to start learning, great people and lots of info, good luck!

    thanks for the warm welcomes, guys. This site is amazing. I can't believe there's so much decent info available on this subject! I really thought I'd be scratching around (pun intended [​IMG]) for *useful* info [​IMG]
