Last week we added 6 chickens, 2 mails, and 4 females to our household and 4 quail. I believe we have 2 male and 2 female. 2 of them still have baby fuzz on their heads so they are young.
We built an aviary for them and they all seem very happy!

When is the Tap program set to begin?
We started our solar project about six months ago. Waiting....waiting. Finally, the installation happened and needed the mandatory inspections. Waiting...waiting. Just got the call, "will anyone be home Thursday at 9 so we can turn on your solar system?" Anybody home?! Really?! I'm sooooo excited. Finally we will be generating power rather than just admiring the system and we expect to have 69% of our power needs taken care of by the sun.
Solar - check. Now, on to chickens…Continue
I found Valley Permaculture Alliance last night and had a huge "this is what I've been looking for" moment! I signed up and waited to be accepted. Today, ta da, my acceptance was in my email and I can't wait to get started. Is that weird or am I among other equally enthusiastic wanna be sustainable nuts?
