Hello everyone. I used to be on here before when I had a small flock when I stayed at my parents house but since then, I've gotten married, bought a house, and just had a baby. so far its been slow trying to get the homestead going. We currently have about 12 chickens, 5 ducks, 3 dogs( a rescue boxer mix, a female beagle, and a adorable 8 pound mini-dachshund who thinks hes 100 pounds). We also have 5 acres which we haven't decided whether we want to plant veggies, or turn half into a field for goats. We're hoping to get plenty of eggs soon to try to start selling.
