Hi all. I just wanted to say hello from a state that really loves chickens. We love being self sufficient and care a great deal about the welfare of all animals. I live in a small town in southern Vermont but not in the wilderness. There are about 10 houses on my road and 6 if us have small chicken flocks. Right now I have my neighbor's baby chicks while she and the family are on vacation. When I need to work late, she comes and closes in my chickens. It's all about sharing and being closer to nature. I sell eggs at work for those who can't have chickens of their own. It has been the best thing that I ever have done. I was afraid of the climate at first but got hearty breeds and use a heat lamp when it drops to the single digits. I am amazed that I am doing this and doing it well. I have learned so much in the last year and for as long as I am able will always have my feathered friends. I just love having them around, makes me feel more connected somehow. The eggs are a bonus !
