    Hey there, I'm Chickants!

    My username is a portmanteau of my two main ways of increasing my sustainability- chickens and plants.

    I just ordered 6 female chicks from Chickensforbackyards.com:
    Barred Plymouth Rock
    Speckled Sussex
    Easter Egger
    Light Brahma
    Buff Orpington
    Welsummer

    They're supposed to ship sometime in June, but I'm still not sure the exact date.

    In addition to the chickens, I'm also growing a garden, so I'll probably be over on The Easy Garden quite a bit. I'm growing annual flowers and a variety of fruits and vegetables.

    Hello and :welcome

    Good luck with your chickens! And also your gardening. I've tried gardening, most times it didn't go very well. :p

    Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and enjoy the site. :D
