No, I personally don't hate chickens...quite the opposite. 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. I would love to go on a "chicken crusade" and convert this chicken hating mentality! 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?!? It seems so many people are missing out on the joy and calm having chickens can bring.
