    No, I personally don't hate chickens...quite the opposite. [​IMG] But I'm finding when people ask me about our chickens, they mention how much they HATE them and would NEVER have their own! This usually accompanied with a back story as to being attacked by a mean old rooster when they were young, or their brother, cousin, mother, etc., etc., along with showing me the physical scar they have today. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I would love to go on a "chicken crusade" and convert this chicken hating mentality! [​IMG] I wonder if I would be wasting my breath mentioning all the beautiful docile breeds out there that ARE NOT mean like grandpa's rooster?!? [​IMG]

    It seems so many people are missing out on the joy and calm having chickens can bring. [​IMG]

    The photo I "think" is a stock photo...the hen has been pictured as a RIR, a Production Red, that OEG (maybe that's what that is?).


    Muggs, sometimes people just don't have the guts to deal with chickens. Their parents never armed them with a baseball bat when they went to collect eggs...
