Hi . Nifty-chicken would like to make a one-page PRINTABLE informational paper. This will be something any member can print off and give to someone who would like the information about THE IMPORTANCE OF CHICKENS, as pets, egg layers. There are many people in the public who think of chickens as "worthless", or even refuse a fee and refuse to help a chicken because of an uneducated opinion. We need to educate people that children love them as pets, some people with high blood pressure need them as their pet. But you all know this. I think we would like to make this page very interesting reading to those who are not chicken owners, perhaps, educating people to their value as a pet . There's alot of info to put into an 8 x 11 page. Artists, writers, and especially ideas are needed as to what needs to be on the page, how to say it, etc. within the space we have on one page. Nifty-Chicken will provide Graphics to the finished page!!!!!! THIS IS IMPORTANT! IT'S A BYC ALL MEMBER PROJECT!!!!! Get your talent in here! Any post or picture used for this project will have automatic permission by the submitter to be used in a printable page to be used by anyone who wishes to print it off. QUOTES: ...." Did you know.... A chicken will keep the snakes out of your yard." They can be very loving and sociable, like hopping into your lap and cuddling, and enjoying being petted, much like a cat or dog... Keeping pet chickens is great fun and relaxing at the same time. They make productive pets and they’re definitely a magnet for children. I can unwind after working by sitting outside with my chickens and having that cup of coffee Feathered Valium.
