Here's my entry, written this November, but I've never submitted it to a contest.

 

I submit it with hopes it will make it to the BYC front page to receive exposure as this topic is not well covered. I wrote it before a word count requirement, so it could be broken down into 2 articles... the why and then the how... if needed. I hope to encourage others with chronic illness to experience the healing joys of raising chickens (which my doctor concurs is an excellent prescription!)

The trap was broken and we escaped.
Our help is in the name of Jehovah,
The maker of heaven and earth."
