    Greetings from Kansas, carlalynn, and [​IMG]! Happy you joined our community! Lots of folks on BYC working toward self-sufficiency. Here's a forum dedicated to it: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16177/diy-self-sufficiency
    And if you'd like to chat with fellow Georgia chicken keepers, locate the GA thread in this link:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you
    Finally, as a new chicken keeper it would be time well spent to read some of the articles in the Learning Center here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center It is loaded with valuable information on all aspects of chicken keeping.
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC! [​IMG]
