Welcome to our new website!

From Meyer Hatchery it’s The Coop - where we talk all things poultry in hopes of inspiring crazy chicken keepers and educating future flock owners. I’m your host Kendra and on the show today we’re talking to a gosling advocate and author who you may recognize from Instagram where she showcases restoring her 200-year-old farm while raising a flock of 17 geese in addition to chickens, ducks, pigs, goats, and sheep. 

Here to share her best advice is Kirsten Lie-Nielsen of Hostile Valley Living. Located in rural Maine, Kirsten has been raising geese and enjoying their query personalities and practicality in her sustainable permaculture practices for years. For a poultry type with many misconceptions, how does one become intrigued to raise such a large flock of them?
