Once upon a time there was a magical land. The Land of Poultry Raising. In this wonderful land a lady could drape her basket over one arm, waltz out the door with a tune on her lips, and return with lovely brown eggs that were so pretty you'd wish you could keep them forever. I'm happy to say, this isn't make believe. Sure, it's dirty sometimes. Ok, most of the time. Alright. It's always dirty. But, there's magic in that dirt. There is something so inherently satisfying in keeping chickens. They are so....Green! You feed them leftover vegetable scraps. They use the energy to create what you will eat for breakfast. Have a bug problem in your yard? Not with five happy chickens roaming around. Even their poo can be a valuable resource - fertilizer. I believe any creation as marvellous as a chicken deserves a little TLC. And even though I am a naive novice, I am one happy chic right now.
