Here’s what’s new at the Starling residence! We’re getting started with homesteading. We both grew up with parents who did some form or piece of homesteading. Andy grew up with huge gardens, grape vines, hogs, and canning. I grew up with chickens, horses, beef cows, and going to livestock sales.
Although we don’t have the acreage that we each grew up on, we knew we could start small. So we got a little backyard chicken flock! 5 beautiful Rhode Island Red hens that are not quite laying age yet. They have about one month to go before we will see eggs. But that’s ok! The girls are enjoying seeing them, checking on them, and giving them feed and water.
