hey everyone- I’m new to chickens entirely, but I’m very excited to start our flock this spring. I have a family of 8 and we live in a very rural community. Our goal in raising chickens is dual purpose, egg production and meat, in an effort to provide a greater independence for our family and give our children a sense of purpose and responsibility. I’m looking forward to learning more and getting to know other members of this community!
Thanks in advance- MFord

Hi and welcome to BYC :frow We're so happy you've decided to join us:ya
I grow chickens, ducks and turkeys for meat and eggs. Once you've tasted one that you've grown, you'll never go back to store bought.
We just got started last year on our little 12 acre plot- it’s been slow going getting started but I am super excited for this year: I see big changes ahead and I’m really looking forward to it. Thanks!
