Hi everyone. I'm not an owner, breeder, or shower of chickens, nor do I live on a property that has room for them. I am an unfortunate urban apartment dweller with three cats. But I love chickens! And I'm happy to be here to see all the wonderful chickens, to learn a ton of information, and dream of buying a house somewhere with a back yard. And a front yard. And oh, why not dream big? A side yard too! (I miss having a yard, can you tell?) I grew up on a farm with skinny brown chickens, and a very huffy rooster so I wasn't allowed to go near the chickens. The chicks, however, could get through the fence and were fluffy and cute. I was horrified later to learn that we ate the adults. I was even more horrified that we sold rabbit meat, after all they let us play and name the cute little babies....Ah well. That is life on a farm.
