    I wanted chickens for so long and with my husband's help, I now have a beautiful coop and 6 adorable hens. I recently read a very sweet little book by Alice Walker called "The Chicken Chronicles". She relates to her life in memories of her duties of chicken raising as a child and how she enjoys their company now as an adult. One of my chickens is named Alice Walker after her.

    I really love to sit with them and enjoy their daily antics.

    It's been great to see my neighbors reacations. I was fearful that there would be a backlash against us for keeping them. Although it's fairly rural where I live, there is an association and some rules about pets and animals. The neighbors I most thought would take issue are the very ones that enjoy them the most. I love to watch kids interact with them.

    I read "The Chicken Chronicles" and agree...it does a great job of describing how we all at BYC feel about our chickens! I totally identified! Glad you are enjoying your chickens. We can all relate!
