Wow Krystel, your place looks really neat. How many acres? It really looks similar to Jack's new 20, what with the outbuildings, fencing & all. Hunky men too, WTG.  :)

Did you catch today's podcast about chickens? It's making me re-think my plans for a permanent coop.

Thanks we don't have much land its only about two and a half acres. In the picture with my boy and husband in the truck what you see behind them is my great aunts house she had 3 acres she has some beef cattle and some donkeys. now the picture with the trees that's our place and if you look in the back ground of the tree pictures you will see an old barn that is where I want to put my chickens.

I did not hear the podcast today but I have seen some of his chicken tractors but I don't have the need  to do that we just make a place to lock them up at knight. I have had chickens before here and we just let them go anywhere they wanted and they were fine and we never feed them they just ate whatever was around.
