I was forced to take a public speaking course this semester in order to graduate (grumbles) and it's time to give our informative speeches. I thought it'd be great to do one on backyard chicken-ing since it's becoming increasingly popular and a lot of people seem unaware of it. I'm running a bit last minute here because I had an entire other speech planned out, but decided it'd be better for my persuasive speech. So, I've got to get everything all ready for Monday night Just wanted to ask if any of you would like to contribute some of the great pictures I know we all have--snuggling our chickens, kissing our chickens, and just plain interacting with them. I have some of my own, but I figured if I just showed mine they'd all just think I'm crazy For anyone who lives in larger metropolitan areas and keep chickens, it'd be great to hear about your experiences as well. I remember reading about a woman who kept chickens in NYC, I believe, and that really drives the point that people are doing it everywhere home. Anything you want to share, stories or whatnot, is completely welcome! Thanks guys!
