How well does the straw work around the outsides of the beds? I am fighting grass!

jenna, hey there (tried your email but the link didnt work) Just finished your book this morning. Loved it! Had to laugh at so many similarities! I went and married a die hard city boy and he has been slow to conform, but it's getting there!

I just finished your book, which I got from the library, and loved it! I am going to buy it next time I make it to the book store. Lots of great info and it's very inspiring! Now I have to figure out how to convince the hubby that rabbits are a good thing to have.....anyway, wanted to ask a quick question. Thought you might know. I didn't have any luck on the chicken forums. We have 10 chicks, I think they are 10 weeks, and we need to integrate them in with our 4 hens and 1 rooster. What's the best way to do this?

Hey Jenna,
I also just finished your book. What a great read! You have totally sold me on the idea of having rabbits. Also, thanks for the awesome idea for produce bags. I detest the plastic ones and have been trying to find a different solution. Thanks for writing your book. So many of those topics really spoke to me and reminded me to just keep trucking towards my dreams and goals for homesteading - starting with the dulcimer... Sled dogs hopefully won't be too far off. :-)

Lady, I love your site. I found it through your article in Mother Earth News--I'm going to go find your book now!

Your experience is incredibly inspiring--my partner and I do web design in the Pacific NW and dream of the day we can buy some land and get out of the city. You've shown there's more than one way to realize those dreams today and stop wishing for tomorrow. Thank you! I look forward to your posts!

Follow up to my earlier post: we put the baby chicks in the coop in their box with a little hole so they can get out but the hens and rooster can't get in. It worked! After less than 24 hours they ventured out of the box and eventually, out of the coop. We had to build another step so they could get back inside. So far no major fights have occured between chick and hen/rooster so, fingers crossed, were gold for weaning our chicks in with the big girls.
