How old were you when you got your first chicken? I have the feeling that I am a pretty late bloomer - in my 40's. It could be that the kids are all flying off to college and I was looking for something to fill the empty nest, at least at first. But now, I'm totally in love and could not see my yard without the pitter-patter of little chicken feet. My youngest daughter got me my first three chicks for Mother's Day. What's your story?
