    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.

    Very nice to meet you Katie. Love your avatar, I see you have' boulders' laying around too. Our part of town was built over a quarry many, many years ago. We can't dig down more than 6 inches without striking some ' pebble' or denting the shovel. We used to try and dig some out but, it made the ground drop a couple feet. We didn't have any dirt to fill the hole, so just put the boulders back. [​IMG]

    Ha ha ha drumstick diva! We were recently hiking in beautiful Moab,Utah - where my avatar picture was taken. But yes, we too are situated on a lot of rock. 25 years of gardening the same spot and we STILL unearth large rocks on a regular basis.
