Okay, this is a vent session (I hope those are allowed on here). Ever since I got my chicks I am constantly fending off criticism from family & friends about owning backyard chickens. While I honestly don't care what others opinions of my choice to raise chickens are, I'm getting pretty tired of being ridiculed, and constantly having to defend & explain (especially when the explaining isn't because someone wants to LEARN about chickens and raising them, it's a response to the criticism). Does it ever stop? Once my girls start to lay, will people lay off??????? Please tell me I'm not the only one who is experiencing this.
