So, a few years ago we ripped up our yard in order to grow lots of vegetables, fruit and wildflowers. It’s been a pretty awesome and rewarding experience. The backbreaking part is over- now it’s a matter of planning, planting and weeding.
This year, we decided to add some chickens. We ordered them from MyPetChicken and yesterday they arrived. We picked up a very noisy package from the post office- and now- here they are! 4 new members of the family! Backyard pets, fertilizer-makers and egg layers! We opted for 4 different breeds- all based on winter-hardiness, disposition, and egg laying capability.
