Hello!! I just thought I would take a minute to introduce myself and explain my intentions here I recently moved onto acreage in Minnesota (relocating from Michigan) with my boyfriend. We are expecting a baby in July and recently bought to heifers to start our own little farm. I love gardening and am looking for a little group of fowl to help keep the ticks down in the yard and garden. I am mainly looking at chickens vs guinea hens at this point and felt this was a great place to start!!! I will appreciate any helpful hints!! Can't wait to start learning all I can about the wonderful world of "farm fowl".
