So out of the blue one day, my wife says "I think I want chickens". I probably looked at her like she had 3 heads. Where did that come from? is what I was thinking. Yes, we are animal lovers, we have a dog, cat, turtles, fish, normal pets. Yes, in the past I have had what may be considered "exotic" pets, snakes, lizards, etc. but Chickens? Where did she hear that you could have chickens in your backyard. After she said it, I started to think about it, and it sounded like it wouldn't be that crazy of an idea. And besides, as most husbands know, "happy wife, happy life".
So I went online and looked up pet chickens and found www.backyardchickens.com. WOW, you guys are great. Not just "backyardchickens.com", but all you members that have told your stories and shown your coops.
