I just had to post this note to say I have loved Chickens in the Road since the first moment I found it on the internet.  (Which was about a year ago) During that time, Suzanne has influenced me to finally break down and get those chickens and ducks and geese I always wanted. I have learned how to care for them from the posts both she and the fine folks on this forum have posted. I have learned to cook wonderful delcious things from both Suzanne’s posts and from the absolutely fantastic posts by the ladies and gentlemen on farm bell recipes.

I just wanted to say thank you to each of you. I have learned so many things on this web site that has helped me live a better life with variety in my meals and frugal ideas galore. I spent this afternoon making new batches of laundry soap, baking soda shampoo, apple cider conditioner, dishwasher detergent…all recipes I found on this site.  We are having stuffed bell peppers that the recipe was found on farm bell recipes. Dessert will be coming from there as well just as soon as I decide WHICH fabulous thing to make!

I’ve bought a few things I always wanted…the tortilla press and pasta machine knowing Suzanne’s tutorials will walk me thru them. There are more I want to try.

This web site is like having a huge extended family of sisters, aunts, grandmothers and even brothers that have already tried the things you want to try and are there to give you advice and help you along the way.

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate each of you and especially how much I appreciate Suzanne for putting this all together and every day without fail making my life brighter.

You are an awesome bunch of people!

Hi, lifeisgood!  I’m glad you’ve come out of lurking and finally joined the forum!  happy-flower I hope you continue on the forum with us.

Suzanne has given so much more than I think she could ever imagine to us…..in our own little much needed way.  Just the opportunity for us to gather here on the forum to discuss things that many of us can’t with the people around us (they simply don’t know a lot of what we’re even talking about….and we get many stares).

Was that a couple of “Amens” I heard in the background there?     yes

What a nice thing to say.  There are a bunch of us who feel the same way and just haven’t gotten around to saying it lately.  Thanks for doing it for us, lifeisgood!  happy-flower

Suzanne will never know how much she has eased my homesickness for the southeastern hills of Ohio. I don’t think I ever want to move back but I sure do miss those hills and valleys! Her farm stories,pictures, and recipes are memory joggers for some of my most cherished times. The tips and advice found here is like having a family gathering everyday. Even a little 2 year old friend is a follower of this site. The other day she asked if she could see the “video of the goats”. After some questioning she finally said the “computer chickens”. Everyone has a soft spot for CITR.

Suzanne, you have a talent for what you do. It’s wonderful that you bring so much joy to others. It doesn’t get much better than making a difference in peoples lives. Thank you.hug

I agree.  This site changed my life!  I know have chickens, render lard, drink raw milk, make wonderful bread, make vanilla, home made wine, ginger beer, butter, clotted cream, clodded cream, kefir, and a garden!  I am sure there is more, lol.  I have loved starting my day with Suzanne’s post!

A very BIG THANK YOU! to CHICKENS IN THE ROAD!!!!  a lot of what we do, raising chickens, homemade bread, canning, growing our own food, making our own soap, living a simple life and enjoying nature at its finest is a lost art.  I am glad that I can come here to this site and meet people who enjoy this kind of living.  Thank you,  Suzanne for all you do!!!!  heart

Thank you lifeisgood for putting my thnoughts into words.  I am another who stumbled across CITR while searching for a recipe.  From the first time I saw this site I have been hooked.  Suzanne is my mentor and I feel that all the wonderful knowledgable people here are my friends.  Thank you all so much.  And while I am here, knowing this isn’t the proper place for this I would like to let all of you in Ohio who went through the severe storms this weekend I am sending prayers to you for your safety and hope none of you suffered horrendous losses.

Thank you to YOU ALL!  You all inspire me to keep working hard and coming up with new ideas–and a lot of times, I learn it from you all here (like rendering lard!).  I’d probably have to sit on the couch if you all didn’t keep me wanting to Do!!! heart

Clover made me do it.

Here, here!  I discovered CITR through a Facebook page where someone mentioned it, and I’ve been hooked ever since. I don’t always post, but I’m here every day. I’m glad Suzanne does what she does!

I don’t know what I would do if CITR were not here!  I find all my answers to questions that I can’t find in the books about chickens.  Some topics just never seem to make it into published books. 

My garden this year is going to be awesome because of all the chicken poo in the garden.  My tomato plants are just about to bust out of the trellis–dark green leaves and loaded with blossoms.  There are even a few tomato fruits forming (which in previous years doesn’t happen for another month!) 

 

With a bit of help, we can all get through these tough times.

My budget plan is NOT getting a cart when I go to the store.

I  too haveto give kudos to Suzanne. I found her site while searching for a knitted or crocheted birds nest. I’ve only been here about a week but I absolutely love it. While I never be able to live the farm life since I allergic to straw and hay and even cut grass(while it’s beeing mowed) I have already learned so much.  I have already made my own laundry soap and candles and am soon preparing to make soap. and I can’t wait to try the Grandmother bread.

 I am so glad I found CITR. Thanks Suzanne for a great place to come and hang out.

JenW, my youngest son is allergic to trees, weeds and grasses…

One of his chores is to mow the lawn.

He takes a spray in the morning..and when he knows he needs to cut the grass, horse riding, getting hay, or whatever he does …the takes extra meds..so it is possible to live in the country with allergies.
