    Hey everyone! My husband and I just bought a 9-acre hobby farm in Missouri, with plans to eventually become self-sufficient. We brought home 8 little chicks yesterday to start our flock. I’m looking forward to learning lots on here!
     
  2. That sounds wonderful! I am glad you joined us.
    What are you mainly keeping chickens for, meat or eggs?
    Im sure you will have lots of questions in your chicken journey, and this is the right spot to ask them.

    Missouri sounds interesting, but so does Iowa. I have never been there.
