BYC Mentioned In Canadian News Site - Funny Quote

    BYC was mentioned in this article: Novel money-saving tips for tough times

    My favorite part:

    Websites like Backyardchickens.com will help you along. And don’t worry—the people on these sites are just like you and me. They’re totally normal. For instance, when the topic turned to whether to eat your hens after their egg-laying days are behind them, one woman sensibly responded: “If we were all starving to death I would chop off an arm or leg and feed it to my kids before I would eat one of my laying hens!!!” (Awww, Mom—arm sandwiches again?)

    Ya, too often chicken owners are viewed as being on the fringes of society... like the peeps in that "history of chickens" video. People that put chickens in their purses, take them to the grocery store, and give them mouth to mouth.... not that there's anything wrong with that. [​IMG]

    I snuggle mine....cheek to cheek. They rub their little faces across my chin and close their eyes with their little necks stretched out across my jawbone.

    Chicken Love!

    ps: if we're normal, what does that make them?
    lol

    People put chickens in their purses? Mine have to wait out in the car while I am in the grocery store! Although I have been known to tote my goose in my hoodie when he was younger!
