    I think I know where my love of chickens came from, I found this picture of my uncle that had just collected the eggs from the hen house! This picture was so nice to find in my mothers attic!

    I never knew he or they had chickens or how often they collected, but I've always wanted chickens and finally got my own flock a little over a year ago, and then to find this pic just really excited me! [​IMG]
