My husband is active military for 25 years we are retiring soon. We love the outdoors and love Alaska so we asked to be here for our last 3 years in the military so we could get a jump on our farm before he gets out. Grandparents owned a chicken farm when i was growing up never gave it thought of owning chickens but after buying our dream house i couldn't see not having chickens. We also have horses, goats and couple dogs. Im so hooked on my chickens wow never thought it. So is hubby lol. I have 5 RIR hens, 1 BO hen and 1 Rir/am rooster . Any time im needing answers this is my first stop great peeps here! Adding to my flock will post in other chats.
