    My very first chicken Lucky is celebrating her 7th year entertaining me in "Chickens as Pets 101"

    [​IMG]

    Top 10 things I've learned....

    1: Nothing runs faster or pecks harder than an upset Lucky
    2: Chickens make fantastic pets
    3: Your not a bad person if you still crave chicken wings
    4: Don't tell your Mom you have 6 chickens living in your hallway. This is bad on so many levels.
    5: It's OK to FORCEFULLY remove guests for making avian flu jokes or bringing their DOGS to your dinner party
    6: Friends will still bring their DOGS over & tell you they will be fine around your Chickens since they are now trained.
    **SEE #5 ABOVE**

    7: Never assume the VENT is NOT loaded and ready to FIRE
    8:: Having CHICKENS will make you smile (EVERY DAY)
    9: Chooks are like potato chips, you can't have just ONE
    10: BYC RAWKS!!!!!!!

    Miriam, we think Lucky is a Belgian D'Uccle, with something else mixed in. Since she showed up as a stray when we first moved to the country, we don't really know her true age.
