Just had to share this little story. I have a friend whom I met through the parent club at my DD's school. A few weeks ago she said she had a huge roll of new fencing that they wanted to get rid of and asked if I was interested. Of course I was. Even though she offered it for free, I've been giving her free eggs as sort of a payment. She loves our eggs, and said she was pleasantly surprised when she first opened the carton and saw all of the colors we have. Anyway. She finally was able to drop off the fencing last Sunday and I walked her over to our run so she could see our chickens. I handed her the can of oatmeal and let her toss some in. She said she could not get over how beautiful our birds were. She said she's seen a lot of chickens (there are a lot in our area), but they always look so raggedy. And then she kept repeating "bee-eautiful". I was proud of my birdies.
