Have I ever told you that my backyard has a chicken coop? A massive chicken coop at that. After moving in last summer, our main goals were to cut down a few trees in the backyard and get our entire property fenced in. Luckily we were able to do that. So this summer, we hope to shift our focus to the chicken coop, giving it some necessary TLC so we can get our chicks soon!
People, I'm freaking excited!
So excited that I've created a new Pinterest board called Backyard Chickens. Yep, I really did that.
So far I've found tips and tricks about broody hens, what to fed/not fed your chickens, healthy snacks, and some pointers to help us fix up our coop. But I want MORE.
I want more chicken literature, darnit! Don't judge...
Okay, I'll get to the point. Does anyone raise their own chickens? Do you have any good advice for my husband and I before we really dive into this? I want to gather all the information that I can so we have happy, healthy chickens and TONS of eggs.
And here's a fun fact for you all, my husband and I have two cows. Their names are Hamburger 1 and Hamburger 2. (Is that mean?)
I'm a little farmer in the making.
