    Well retired and practicing homesteading on our 3.5 acres. Grow and put up most our food and buy my meat fresh and make my own cured meats and sausages. So meat and egg production is a reasonable next step.
    Never raised chickens before.But been around them in Kentucky and helped. But there they ran free and savage most their food. So always looking for advise as I will need to pen these one way or the other.

    Hi Viper! Welcome to chickenland from NJ. You might want to check out the buckeye folks. They are all about homesteading and self sustaining practices. Me too!

    Welcome! My goal is eventually do some homesteading myself. Right now living in town with my 12 hens. I seem to expand my garden every year. We can never grow enough...

    there is a Buckeye thread over in the "Breeds & Genetics" section....if you cant find it go to my profile and look at my "other posts" you can find the Buckeye chicken folks over there!!!

    Now if you are looking for other people in Ohio (also called Buckeyes) there are a bunch of us at the "Buckeye Chickens" thread, too!!! :D
