Hey y'all. My name is Karen. I grew up on a farm. We grew a lot of fruits and veggies, raised sheep, horses, pigs, cattle, chickens, rabbits, ducks, and of course had dogs and cats. I was in 4-H. I have always cooked, baked, crocheted, sewn, and all sorts of crafty things. The crafts have always been part of my life, but living in the suburbs, no sun in our yard, no room for a garden or chickens, and frankly our county just approved chicken keeping for those of us with less than 2 acres, I have gotten far away from my roots. Now I am aching to get back into it all. I want to start with chickens. I am looking forward to learning a lot about raising and keeping a flock. Hopefully in a few years Hubby and I will be retiring to our property and will have the space and time for all of the above! I am looking forward to learning all I can about chickens.
