Hi everyone. A big hello from Nelson, British Columbia, Canada. My neighbour recommended this website for all-things-chicken. My husband and I live on 40 acres of mountain outside of the small town of Nelson (10,000 people). We have had chickens most of our 25 years together, but it has mostly been my husband who has run the show. I figure it is my turn to learn about chickens. Currently we have seven mixed hens and a handsome rooster. I'm frustrated that the ladies aren't laying - it could be the time of year but also some of them are serious seniors! I'm looking to start fresh with a new batch of hens. But first I need to read, read, read.
