    Hello all!

    For my media writing class I'm writing a documentary about raising chickens and for the project I need to interview some people. But I don't know anyone to interview, so I thought you all could help me.

    I'm going to list some questions below and if you could answer some or all of them that would be great! And if you do answer some or all of the questions, if you could include your name and last initial as well as what you do for a living that would be great, but you don't have to if you're not comfortable.

    How long have chickens been part of your life?

    What is the best place to raise chickens?

    What is the best way to house chickens?

    What do your neighbors, if you have neighbors, think about your chickens?

    What are some common misconceptions about chickens?

    What makes raising chickens worth it?

    What is challenging about raising chickens?

    What breeds are the best to raise in backyard settings? Rural settings?

    What predators do you think are the most dangerous to chickens?

    Have you lost any birds to predators? What predators? How did it happen?

    Do you name your birds? Why or why not?

    Have you had any trouble with disease affecting your birds? What disease?

    Would you or do you eat the birds you raise? Why or why not?

    How do chickens compare to the other animals in your life? (ie. dogs, cats, other poultry, livestock)

    If you have children, do your children and chickens mix well?

    What breeds of chicken do you/have you raise/d? Which breeds are your favorite? Why?

    How capable of flight are your chickens?

    What are some complaints you've received about raising chickens?

    Why do you think some people don't like the idea of raising chickens?
