I will not deny that I have been thinking about chickens, but it was a "later on" thing. I wanted pygmy goats first, and that was still a few years off. Then I heard them peeping at Tractor Supply .... I am now a week into chicken farming. I only have six, but everyday that number seems smaller and smaller. What do they call it? Chicken math? I just saw a video on how the chicks get treated before being shipped. I will NOT buy them from a large company again. I think I will hatch my own, or find someone nearby. Anyhoot, here I am! A proud momma waiting to take the chicks on the Harley (No, I am not kidding. Our dogs and fish have all ridden!).
