All articles posted here on the Backyard Chicken Lady blog are written based on my personal experience, or the experience of myself and my family.  I am not, and do not claim to be, an expert on any particular subject, I just share what I know.  Before trying anything new I do my own research, and I encourage you to do the same.  As a reader of the Backyard Chicken Lady blog you must be responsible for your own actions and decisions. 
When reviewing a product or book, I strive to give the most honest review of my personal experience.  I share my experience and opinions in the article, and disclose if any compensation was received in exchange for me sharing my own experience and opinions expressed in the article.  I will NEVER post an article that a sponsor prepared for me.
All recipes, content, photos and articles are my own work, unless otherwise stated.  If you would like to share my posts or photos, you  must link back to my site.  Please note that simply making a reference or copying and pasting is not acceptable, and I will take legal action.  You do have my permission to share my posts, photos and work on social networking sites, such as, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, provided I am given full credit and there is a link to my original post.  You DO NOT assume or retain any rights to my work. 
From time to time, I add affiliate links to products or companies that I shop from or support.  Occasionally, I may be compensated with a small commision when a reader uses my link to make a purchase.  There are no additional costs to you for using an affiliate link.  Any affiliate links added are done after the article is written; I do not write posts for advertising purposes.
