    Since i have started reading this forum my ambitions have run away with me. I purchased chicks last year at 2$ a piece and had 7 hens and 3 roosters. since then I have gone and caught all the wild chickens on the property 3 wild game hens of sorts. then I just finished my incubator out and now have 15 and counting hatching out. I think the birds are starting to take over ...... btw hello and enjoying the experience. this is all after moving to the country to start a micro farm while working a full time job and trying my hand with pigs and goats as well. I will figure this out by the time I'm in overalls and a straw hat I am sure. The 60 acres for sale is looking tempting.

    I don't think my family has owned more than 5 acres in the past 3 generations and to jump too 150 acres is where I want to be.
