    My husband and I just started raising chickens and turkeys. My husband is a veteran and we decided to raise meat and egg chickens in ordee to help feed homeless veterans!
    We will also be raising chickens and turkeys to sell so we can raise money for other needed items for our homeless veterans.

    I look forward to learning a lot!
