It is official, after a year of reading BYC, and raising our Welsh Harlequins, we have finally started our chicken flock. We are starting small, just four as of today, but are already looking for more. So our family is now my husband and myself, four kids, four cats, two Welsh Harlequins, two Ameraucana chicks, and two Black Australorps chicks. Woo hoo, the journey is just beginning! Our plan is to homestead as sustainably as possible on our one acre. I'm so happy that there is a community here that I can learn from!
