Raising Chickens class....

Was a yolk! Never found the place. Spent an hour driving around downtown flipping scary Phoenix and never found the place. It's a good thing The Peddler is understanding. Maybe I should just settle for a good chicken book and take it from there! Seriously, how hard can a few chickens be? Kristin? Anyone?

Dan is trying to get me to get rid of the chickens- I think he is trying to get Rick to take them- He just doesn't like cleaning up after them!

For a while we thought they had stopped laying eggs- but today while cleaning up in the yard we found 20+ eggs that they were hiding in a bush- so funny those chickens!!!

Seriously- you need to take some of our eggs- (fresh ones of course!)

Piece of cake really- I thought that I should get 6 because maybe a few would die- but they all made it but 1- (poor little chick- Ben ate him.)

They are easy!! Get you a book then order some chickies and get a bag of Chicken scratch from the feed store..Build them a funk hen house and your in bizness~

You can probably find all you need to know on the internet. Just google "how to raise chickens". I love Google! I'm still trying to figure out why anyone would want chicken poop in their yard though. I have awful memories of the chicken farm in our town when I was growing up. Stink doesn't begin to describe it.

If I could have animals other than dogs, I'd have sheep. They wouldn't do anything except eat grass, but I could at least look at them and pretend I was in England.

Kim,
Have you eaten fresh eggs? It was fun when I was a child to collect them from my grandmother's hen house for her---BUT I don't even like the taste of them now that I am no longer a young chic myself. They are strong!
Hey, but if you build a hen house you could use the extra space for visitors! Enjoy your loved ones visit.

I vote no on the chickens...but yes for sure on the house! Just coordinate with Justin & Liesl. They are going to put some of their stuff in the house for the weekend while their house is de-termited. Just tell them what rooms you want for sleeping. The basement is nice, carpet just got cleaned after we left and it's really soft.

Did i mention we are extremely interested in getting us some chickens. Let me know when you get started and how it goes! Good luck!

Oh dear, what a disappointment. Dr. Casey just read something about chickens the other day in one of my magazines ~ possibly Mary Jane's Farm. Something about a really cool chicken coop. Right now, he's sticking with dirt farming. But I agree ~ how hard can they be?
