So, our family wants to be as self-sufficient as possible on our little farm in the jungle. We have chickens that are giving us eggs every day, we have trees that are giving/will give us fruit, and goats that will have kids soon and will therefore give us milk for butter and cheese and yogurt and such.
I explained in my post about chickens that we had gotten some meat birds before that we then had to dispatch of and they were delicious. We then got laying hens for eggs but mom pointed out that if we are trying to be self-sufficient, raising meat birds might not be a bad idea. So yesterday, while we were in town, we picked up six new baby chicks.
