The Chicken Man.

My husband IS The Chicken Man.

He might not appreciate that name, and I didn’t pre-authorize this name with him, however, it’s true.

He is The Chicken Man.  At least he will be on the days he’s teaching the Raising Backyard Chickens Class.

The Chicken Man is the one to know for all things Chicken:

1.  He knows the names of all the types.

2.  He knows which ones are hardy enough to have in Colorado.

3.  He knows which ones you should get for the best (and most) eggs.

4.  He knows the best chickens to get for meat.

5.  He knows how to raise them from babies.

6.  He knows how to get them to make babies.

7.  He knows what they should eat.

8.  He knows what medicine they need.

9.  He knows how to protect them from predators.

10.  He knows how to build chicken coops.

11.  He knows how to build chicken bunkers.

12.  He knows how you can build your own chicken coop.

13.  He knows how to clean the poop.

14.  He knows how to make compost out of the poop.

15.  He knows how to slaughter them.

16.  He knows how to cook them.

17.  He knows how to hold them.

18.  He knows how to cure them from what ails them.

19.  He knows the best places to buy them.

20.  He Is The Chicken Man.

And, he wants YOU in his class.

You don’t want to disappoint The Chicken Man.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Growing up, the closest thing I had to farm animals were a cat and a cockatiel. In 2009, Herbert (my husband) and I bought our first milk goat and I instantly became an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life..before I knew “urban homesteading” was a thing. That’s when we began The Goat Cheese Lady Farm, hence The Goat Cheese Lady blog you’re visiting now. After moving to the country in 2014, I embarked on life as a rural farmgirl. We continued teaching farm and cheesemaking classes, raising more goats and began construction on our cheese creamery. But life had other plans and in 2017, we decided that, due to financial and health issues, we had to close the farm for business. No more classes, no more creamery, a lot less milking. We went back to off farm jobs, I as an Occupational Therapist, Herbert in construction with his business, D&A Home Remodeling. At that point, I made a silent promise to myself that I would corral my entrepreneurial mind and focus on a job for a year. Well, it has been a year and I am back. Not to classes, cheese, soap or lotion, but back to writing. I love it. I’m not sure where it will lead me, but that’s where I’m starting. I’ll continue to write as The Goat Cheese Lady for now, and whatever the future holds, I’ll let you know. Our two boys are 14 and 11 and continue to be louder than my sister and I ever were. We have two dogs, Montaña and Flash, a cat, Jumpy, a flock of chickens and three goats. Yes, we still have Lucy, the goat who helped us start it all and was milked by over 1,000 people. She’s retired but still the boss. Chocolate provides enough milk for our family with some to spare for the dogs. Soccer friends, school friends, coyotes and mice are frequent visitors. There are way too many flies and every so often we see an owl. I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes you’ll laugh out loud, other times you’ll be inspired to appreciate the small things. My hope is that, over your morning cup of coffee or your afternoon work break, you’ll enjoy the antics and inspiration that are my daily life. Lindsey

    I LOVE THIS! I already have chickens, but this should be a successful class for you! Are you aware of the Take a Peak Chicken Coop tour around the end of April? It would be an awesome, subtle promotion for you and “The Chicken Man!” I think it will be two days this year.
