When we moved here to So Oregon almost a year ago. I wanted property, and I wanted to raise some chickens again. Several people lightly ribbed me for wanting chickens. "What are you going to do next? Buy overalls and walk around with a long blade of hay hanging from your mouth? A-huh, a-huh, ahuh." I thought to myself...is that a bad thing? Flash forward to present. I now have 16 eight week olds in the hen house. One friend has 5, another has 4, another yet is talking about getting some, and a fourth has ordered 12. It's contagious! Have you witnessed chicken fever yourself?
