Have you ever kept chickens? We acquired our first flock last summer and fell in love with them. First of all, they are a riot! When we kept finding ourselves just sitting around and watching the chickens we decided to call it chicken TV. Seriously, they are that entertaining!
There is really nothing cuter than new chicks (except for that granddaughter of course). They really aren’t that hard to keep, they make great pets and are a great project for kids to learn about responsibility and Nature.
In regards to issues of sustainability, well, chickens are awesome. They are basically pigs with feathers, so they will eat all your scraps, take care of the weeds in the yard and eat the mosquitoes that drive you crazy. And their poop (once composted) is great for your garden. Less waste and fresh eggs too!
Yep, those are our eggs…..pretty aren’t they, and believe me, you’ve never tasted better!
