So the adventure begins. Although the novelty will surely wear off, we are excited to begin a new adventure in pet ownership.
We have decided, as a family, to raise chickens as pets and to take full advantage of their products and by-products. Although we are in a regular (1/4 acre) city lot, we expect to find a way to incorporate these animals into our lifestyle (not the other way around). Months of research and a commitment by all family members to care for and raise these animals enboldened us to take the plunge.
On St. Patricks Day, 2009, they were delivered to our local feed supply and we picked them up that afternoon. Snapped some photos...
We were able to 'repurpose' an old toybox...perfect!
