    My husband and I just bought a little barn house in the NC mountains. The neighbor has about 10 chickens and 1 rooster who like to spend most of their time in my yard. Crazy as others think I have become fond of these chickens and after the birth of my neighbors twins, their time is none. I am hoping they consider selling them to me, as they (the chickens) spend much of their time in my place and i feed them. (I don't believe they get much care at home). Either way this experience has helped us decided & we want Chickens. We are looking into the best coop, and I am doing research to care for them. I am a cancer patient / survivor and there is something so peaceful about hanging out with the chicks! :)

    Welcome to BYC.
    Chickens are wonderful pets and they can provide food.
    How cool/neat is that!

    I love it, One little gal has left me a few eggs. I always look at it as a thank you gift for providing them with food and fresh water.

    Chickens are very therapeutic, and entertaining. Who doesn't like sitting down and watching the "daily chicken show?" We call it chicken TV, no reruns, live performances, no cable or satellite bills. Wow!! :welcome
