The chickens are settling in!

610585579We have had our girls for about a week now. They seem to be settling in well. They are so little still. I cant wait to see them when they reach maturity. This is a learning process for us. We have never had chickens before. My grandparents had chickens when I was growing up and I always had so much fun collecting eggs and helping with their garden so I am thrilled that my kids will get the same experiences that I did. My friend Tanya (pictured above) has been helping me with the garden and the chickens. Its been a bonding experience for us. It is so very nice to have close friends!

My 3 children and I live on 14 acres in Savannah Ga. I have worked hard at turning the property into a thriving, self sufficient homestead. It has been a learning experience and a lot of hard work but its so worth it. I don't understand how our country became so consumer driven. We have lost so much of our production way of life. It is my goal to get back to basics any way that I can. My three children used be so hooked on TV, video games, computers, iphones and ipads. And while they still like those things, they now spend just as much time outside as they do inside. I hope by learning to raise chickens and rabbits, growing gardens, raising goats and riding horses and spending more time outdoors in general, my children will learn to love and appreciate a simpler way of life. I knew nothing about homesteading when I started this journey but I have learned so much and love every minute of it.
