Howdy All I am not a backyard chicken farmer but I am interested in becoming one. I am in early retirement and we are looking to move to a farmette so I can have chickens and maybe some small goats. I think it will keep me active and a good experience for my grandchildren to help when they visit. We have a farm we are looking at - ok it is really just acreage and a house. Any advise or suggestions are welcome. We only have experience (childhood) with cows, cattle, horses and pigs. Thank you and I look forward to being a part of this group.
