Hello, My family has been farming for as long back as records are kept. Of course, that's just the way they fed their families, but for us, it is a lifestyle choice. We live as close to the way my great-grandparents and grandparents taught me to farm and live as is possible in this modern day. As for chickens...I have loved them since I am able to remember. My grandmother taught me most everything I know about them and I am still as enthralled and crazy about them today as I was as a child. I look forward to learning from you all and maybe even being able to help others too.
