Hi everyone! I am soooo grateful I found this site! I need all the help you knowledgeable people are willing to share so I can keep healthy, happy chickens in our less than ideal climate. I also hope to be able to share a bit of my own tips and knowledge in return. I am a master gardener and have been successfully gardening organically in the snow belt for many years. We are working hard on our coop and hope to be ready to get our chickens within a week or so. We are looking for pullets or maybe slightly older laying hens if anyone has any ideas for a source for us. Happy spring everyone!!!
