Thought I'd go through the introduction part! I'm currently overwintering 4 hens for a friend but will be getting my own in March/April. My "backyard" is 63 acres, half of which is fields/house/barns and the other half is mixed wetland, forest and and limestone outcrop. Just moved in 3 months ago and loving the country life so far. The plan is to eventually ramp up to 75-100 laying hens (along with other farm business adventures).Having a bit of trouble with the freezing temperatures and it's only December Anyway, I've come across this site numerous times over the last couple years when searching for information so I figured I'd join up now that I'm in feet first!
