Backyard chickens have become increasingly popular for both homesteaders and urban hobby farmers. They provide eggs, meat, bug control, and are simply just fun to watch! They are tiny dinosaurs with wings! However, organic poultry crumbles can sell for as much as $25 per 50 lb bag. And at 1/3 to 1/4 lb per chicken per day, the costs can add up quickly! But there are quick and easy ways to feed your chickens for FREE that can drastically reduce your feed bill! Click the link to learn more!

I may not be your typical homesteader. My husband is active duty USMC, so we pull up roots (pun intended) every couple of years and tend to live in rented housing. However homesteading is a mindset, not a number of acres. My husband and I do everything we can to live simply, self-sufficiently, and as naturally as possible on 1/3 of an acre in the suburbs. We challenge each other to find new uses for things, to make do or do without, to invent new ways to be self-sufficient. I hope you'll join me on this journey, learn from my experiences and share your own! Homesteading is a community mindset and I look forward to hearing from you. http://www.hillsborough-homesteading.com/
