COVID chickens for us too. Kids were starting virtual school in fall of 2020, and husband working from home, and we decided to take the plunge. Thought it would be a great project/learning experience for the boys, after we had sort of jokingly talked about it for a long time. We started with 3 and now have 10 and we are addicted!
Yes, a lot of people in my area also started buying chicks and rabbits, after Covid started and all the mess about meat shortages in the stores. Chicks sold out fast at places like Tractor Supply. Fortunately, I had started raising rabbits and chickens before the pandemic. I have to say, God knew it was a coming and helped me out! Just saying!
