LOL If my DH has one complaint about the chickens (and there are always a couple) it's that travel becomes much harder and I'm much less inclined to go anywhere. We're lucky to have a great farm sitter that takes good care of the goats and chickens.My least favorite part about keeping chickens is that I can't leave town unless my one daughter is home from college to chicken-sit. It's impossible to find chicken-sitters where I live.
My least favorite part? Having a raccoon or the neighbors dog kill one. The heartbreak is so horrible that I find myself being irrationally overprotective (as a mother hen) with the survivors.Although cleaning up poo and coops isn't the funniest thing, my LEAST favorite thing about keeping chickens is having a limit on how many I can keep!
It's not that I can't keep more on our 15 acres, it's just that I know I'll have to add more coops and having more than 100-120 chickens seems overwhelming... it's so hard not to keep chicks or introduce new breeds! Lol
