    By way introduction, my hubby and I have 5 acres in Oklahoma. We are trying to become as self sufficient as possible an our chickens are a big part of that. I love everything about chickens! My husband says I need a 12 step program. :( Right now we are starting over after a rough summer of bobcat and hawk attacks. Until I catch the bobcat, my new flock is confined to a fence pen with netting over it. We want to get back to free ranging in the spring. I am excited to learn from other members and share what I can.

    Greetings from Kansas, Beth, and [​IMG]! Happy you joined our community. I'm always encouraged to see another person going for a more self-sufficient lifestyle. Sorry to hear about your early run-ins with predators - a costant threat! I wish you the best with your new flock!!!

    [​IMG]to the flock, from NC. We too are striving for self sufficiency. We have chickens and ducks, going to begin setting up rain barrels/rain catching systems and an expanded garden (next spring) and so on.
