Are there any backyard chicken people here?
I kept a few for a few years but they stopped laying and went to the "retirement farm". I was going to take this winter off but there are so many free chickens available on craigslist that I'm getting back in the game.
(Side note: there was a rush of new people keeping chickens last year, wonder if they're tiring of it and giving them away?)
My project for this year is to figure out if I want to do a bulb setup in the coop to extend laying in the winter. It will need to be solar so I'll be starting that research soon.
Also hoping to acquire some more from Craigslist so it will be my first time merging flocks. Fun times!
