From SW Michigan will probably be moving to Ithaca NY within a couple years to set up homestead with daughter. Fell in love with chickens and fresh eggs when I was a kid visiting my brother summers, never owned my own flock but am the 'Chicken Sitter' for about 10 years now when a couple of freinds who have chickens go on vacations . Just here to see what I can see and learn what I can learn. Chickens will be the first critters at the homestead so am now actively planning/mentally preparing. Question, what is the deal with double click ads on this site?!?!? Sometimes I can back page, and others double click crushes it.
