Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

A great accompaniment to the class I took yesterday!


Thank you, Jon! There is more to come, at least one, perhaps two more parts.


I'm going to see if I can share this with the Phoenix Permaculture Guild


Please do. Composted chicken manure is awesome fertilizer.


I am a decent neighbor. My next door neighbors have chickens (and a couple of roosters), as do the neighbors two houses down on the other side. Their roosters are very noisy! Somehow, it doesn't bother me. I get my eggs from my neighbor for a mere $2 a dozen; mixed white and brown. Delicious! She has two baaaing sheep too, which I just love the sound of.

Your post was very informative and I only wish I had the space for chickens here, but I don't. Some day maybe! The only predators here for the chickens are the bears and the hawks. No exotic bobcats ... yet.

One of these days I'm going to have goats so we can make make cheese with our own milk. Right now we have to rely on other sources for raw milk, but it's illegal to sell raw milk in New Jersey so people smuggle it over the border from New York. Hubby makes mean cheese!

Right now we just got blasted with two feet of snow! Yikes!

I guess Injun Ginny doesn't read your blog. I can't get away with anything as most of my neighbors read my blog (but don't comment). I think they read just to see if I am talking about them or not. Which of course I am not because I know they'll read it. Oh well. I could tell a few stories though ...

It's great to see so many people getting into chickens and your blog will certainly help people understand what's needed raise them. Thanks for the information.

You got a really useful blog I have been here reading for about half an hour. I am a newbie and your post is valuable for me. these practices are unfair; but they say that most of their rules are only to apply to people who overdra.
