  First Chickens!!
I'm getting my first chickens EVER! I'm so happy! I built the coop myself from completely recycled materials! I have to pay for the food and supplies for the run, but thanks to great friends the total cost of six NH Reds+the coop= $0.00! THANK YOU GREAT FRIENDS! I will do my best for the chickens! :D

  Bees or chickens?
I am in still in highschool. A wonderful school with a horticulture program! I just learned how to build a top bar bee hive. I am wondering, what is easier for a beginner? Bees? Or chickens?

Have fun growing your farm! We have coyotes, cougars, and bear in the area.. But, we also have dogs. They'll set up quite a ruckus, if something comes by! I really have had more problems with the neighbor's dogs, than the "predators." I don't see any problem with the coop close by. Keep it clean so the odor isn't an issue.

  Thanks for the help :)
I am still in the process of clearing land, but we have enough space for a chicken coop. The area I live in has a large amount of coyotes and foxes, and my neighbor lost most of her flock to them, so we were thinking about putting the coop relatively close to our house. Is this a good idea? And I was also thinking of trying to grow some herbs, squashes, and maybe some tomatoes for farmer's markets and local restaurants.

I will attempt to help where I can, if I can't I am sure we can fine someone who can help. I have been away from farming for thirty some years but have recently purchased a small farm and am eagerly looking forward to getting my hands dirty once again. I never really got away from the soil but just went citified for a while. What do you plan on raising, growing? Do you want plants, produce for the farmers markets? Or are you doing animals?

Come visit me, HOWELL.
