My daughter and son-in law and 3 children moved into our home 8 years ago(along with a Great Dane who has since passed). Now there are 6 children, the last 3 were born in our home. My daughter home schools all of them. They range from 15 years old to 3 years old. They are the sweetest bunch ever! They have been bugging me for years to get chickens cause they are BIG egg eaters. My wife and I are both collecting Social Security and I still work 40 hours a week or more so finances are good and we can afford the investment. I would have liked to put a new motor in my 98 Grand Cherokee but that will have to happen in the future. With all the things going on in our country and in the world I decided it was time to do a little more prepping for hard times that may be on the horizon. We live in a very rural area in southeast TN without many restrictions.......soooo CHICKENS IT IS! My wife, Elaine has been FL taking care of her 92 year old mother for 4 years now and we travel back and forth every other month or so. Here is a photo of what I come home to every day! Life is GOOD! Thank you ABBA!
