If you're friends with me on Facebook, you know I call our chickens my fatties. Well, life for my fatties is slowly drawing to a close.
I could go all hippie on you and tell you how happy I am that my fatties have had a happy life doing what chickens are supposed to do. Or about how I feel like raising happy, healthy chickens that are still running around and trying to fly feels like some small way to honor God and His creation. But instead, I will say this -
By Saturday evening, if all goes according to plan we will have a freezer very, very full of humanely raised, hormone free chicken. Even though we had some startup costs, there is no more frugal way to supply good food for our family. It's not for everyone, but we are so thankful that we can do this.
And with that frugal thought, I'd also like to introduce my newest venture.
I will be writing a monthly column for Homeschool Mosaics on frugal living. Join me over here for the first installment!
