  • Backyard chicken flocks are popular in all areas of Kentucky. If you want to have a successful flock and produce your own eggs, preparation and education are essential.

    Not everyone is suited for keeping a poultry flock. Make sure you check that your local city and county ordinances allow backyard flocks. Some ordinances require a minimum amount of land, and some subdivisions even have their own rules.

  • Deciding what to have for dinner each night can be a daily conundrum for many of us. As a result, we may find ourselves in line at a fast food restaurant more than we care to admit. But it does not have to be this way. By preparing at least portions of our meals in advance, we can have home cooked, healthy meals on a regular basis.

  • As soon as the weather warms up, most of us head outdoors. If outdoor activities like camping or hiking are in your family’s near future, make sure everyone knows how to keep themselves safe.

    Planning is one of the most important safety measures you can take. Proper planning ensures your family has enough water and food in the event you get lost. It also means you have clothing like rain jackets and boots that you can use if the weather rapidly changes. Talk to your young people about your expectations for their behavior before you go on an outdoor adventure.
