Hi Everyone. My name is Cindy. Don't have any chickens yet, don't even have a coop. But we are moving onto the homestead of our dreams early next year and one of the first things I want to do is start raising chickens! I'm hoping that by the time we move and after hours spent every week reading threads on BYC, I'll be prepared to do so. Beside this, I'm hoping to grow some delicious veggies and eventually get into beekeeping and cuniculture. It sounds like a lot, but my partner and I are both very enthusiastic about this lifestyle. We have no children and only he will be working separately from the homestead so I have a lot on my plate. What I've read so far has been great advice. This is a wonderful community!
