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.
