Peep Peep – How are you?
I’m Dave. We’re going to discuss chickens on this site. I like ’em. They are givers.
I LIKE CHICKENS
I was born on a farm in Upstate New York. It was a typical dairy of the time, with cows, pigs, chickens, and even a horse named Golden Girl. My parents sold it when I was very young, but I still have great memories of the farm, and I guess there’s a little of that farm still in me.
Several years ago a friend and I bought a few baby chicks to raise for fun, and to get a few eggs. We didn’t sell the eggs, but we did give many away. Waiting anxiously for the first eggs to drop can seem like an eternity. When they do come, every morning is like a treasure hunt. It is very gratifying to have a flock reward you with one of nature’s most perfect foods every day.
I keep a small flock currently – a few Rhode Island reds, light Brahmas, Araucanian, and easter eggers. I’m getting three different colored eggs – brown, blue, and green (there is also a bantam that throws in a tiny white one occasionally).
My girls free-range, and I feed them organic pellets. People seem to like the idea of organic. I don’t mind the extra few dollars for the feed – I like my birds.
IT CAN BE HARD TO FIND INFORMATION – I CAN HELP
When I started incubating eggs, I had a few questions that I couldn’t get answers to quickly enough for me. I don’t mind research, but I prefer to be a doer. So I found my answers and thought, I’ll bet there are others out there that would like a concise, no frills, no bull, one-stop website to answer almost any question that a beginning chickeneer might have.
So this site is for you so you can answer your start-up questions. Questions like what is a good incubator, what is the right temperature to incubate, what is the right humidity, what is the right brooder, and so on, ad infinitum.
Of course, no one knows everything, but I’ll do my best to put the best current information that there is in this site.
BUILD YOUR OWN FLOCK
The goal of this site is to give you all the information you need, in one place, to allow you to start your own chicken flock.
Once you get your flock off the ground, you will want to keep them happy and healthy so that you can enjoy what they have to give to you. You will find that information here too.
That’s a little about me and what I want for you. I know you want to get at it, so let’s get going…
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to contact me and I will be more than happy to help you out. Also, if you would like to find out how I built this website, and how you could build your own passive income site, just click.
All the best,
