It's that time of year again when in a flurry of excitement over spring chickens, we start to plan for the arrival of new our feathered friends.
Between your chickens’ health and building them a happy home, there’s a lot to consider in chicken ownership. Luckily, over the years we’ve collected a slew of resources for first time chicken owners and seasoned coop keepers alike.
Here is our all-inclusive list of necessities and resources to ensure that you start your chickens off on the right foot!Posted Tuesday, February 02, 2016 | By Alycia Lang |
We’re in the middle of the most severe drought on record in the state, and while we are expecting (fingers crossed) a wet winter, one El Niño season is unfortunately probably not enough to end it.
While we all seem to be doing a bit to conserve water (Californians used 28% less water this year than last), one well intended trend we’ve noticed amongst our homesteader friends is the choice to abandon their backyard food gardens all together. While we’d all like to think that the most effective way to reduce our water usage is to simply use less of it (intuitive, right?), it may not be quite that simple when it comes to growing food.Posted Monday, December 07, 2015 | By Alycia Lang |
