    This is such a fun place to visit. I'm glad I finally joined :)

    I started researching chickens a year ago. Then I had to "sell" the idea to my husband. I told him that I had a great idea for a "Lawn Improvement Program". I explained how there are chicken tractors that you move around the yard, thus making chickens the best "Lawn Improvement Program" around!

    I told him the chickens would:
    Mow the grass,
    Fertilize the yard,
    And lay eggs for his breakfast!

    He liked the idea and thus began our chicken adventure!!

    LOL...I told my husband that the chickens would keep the weeds down around our fence. At that time we had five chickens and 2.5 acres of fenced property. Needless to say, he still had to weedeat. [​IMG]
