"You are definitely NOT crazy! Chickens are the most fun of all my animals. Even if they did not lay eggs we would just have them for the whimsy they provide. But they do lay, very nicely. Easy to care for and all of our other critters seem to like…"

"My advice? Start small, and before you go to the trouble of planting a lot, start the winter off by getting it fertile and ready for spring. We rent, and when I put our first garden in, the soil in the area was not good soil. My garden did NOT do…"
