Welcome to By the Bushel & By the Dozen! Here you will find many dispatches inspired by my silly little homestead, and hopefully some very relatable stories to help you deal with whatever issues you might be experiencing with your homestead. I started this blog because I felt that more information needed to be available for those of us raising chickens and trying to live a more self-sufficient life. I hope you enjoy perusing this blog and welcome your comments (after I approve them, of course. Some folks like to troll and cause trouble!).
