Yes, I have been referred to as the Crazy Chicken Lady, and guess what! I love it! Being crazy about my chickens is a compliment, besides, what's the old saying, "Don't knock it, til' you try it"! So, yes, I absolutely love and adore chickens! I never would have known, but will never be without chickens in my life again! First experience, and nearly 50 yrs old, nearly. We had so much to learn, hens to heal, integrating to manage, coop/run problems to solve, and dogs to train, but feeling empowered by it all. Well functioning now though, garden not so much, but we'll problem solve that in the Spring! Could not have done it without the help of BackYard Chickens.com either! Many thanks to all the advise, support and wealth of information. The different personalities are amazing, watching them range in the yard, follow the dogs, peck at the dogs, jump for treats, and run to me (especially when I am calling the dogs in!), and most importantly how FUN it is to care for them! Next, can't believe the delicious eggs! I'm new to this, and vaguely remember my grandmas neighbor bringing eggs, but heck, I was like 8, so don't remember being all OOOOH and AAHHH over the incredible taste, like I am today. I had to research yolk color, because we did a side by side cook off, with a store brand, and our yolks were orange. I know I don't need to tell you which egg won the cook off! Happy Holidays to all our fellow chicken lovers, may your flocks be as spoiled as ours! Just sharing photos like a typical, proud "CRAZY CHICKEN LADY"!
