My name is Lori and I'm completely new to all of this. I thought I would sign on here and learn all I could before trying to raise my own flock. I want to do this right, therefore all the research I can do, the better. I look forward to any advice anyone wants to give. I am a bookkeeper by trade but love fresh eggs. I'm trying to start the homesteading thing so thought raising chickens would be a good start. I also raise vegetables in the summer. Thanks for any advice. It will be much appreciated.
