    Hi everyone. I saw this site a couple years ago, and found it again recently now that we are talking about raising hens. I'm here to do research and see if it would be feasible for us, given that we go out of town periodically.

    If we can manage it, we'd love for our (homeschooled) kids to participate in the responsibility of raising chickens, plus would love to save a bit of money on organic eggs (not to mention it would be great to have more compost for our garden!).

    [​IMG] WELCOME TO BYC Check out the NY chicken lover thread too.. .lots of local NYers on there.

    We go out of town and have our neighbor come check for eggs (let them keep the eggs if they want while we are gone) We homeschool and raise or own so we know what ours are fed. (We feed organic too) I think there are ways to have a 5 gallon bucket waterer/feeder to make sure they have lots of food while you go away.

    Happy researching!!!
