My favorite minutes of chicken keeping are when my hens talk to me. I don't talk back much, mostly mmhm... yeah? ...ok... uh huh.

So i put companionship as #1.
I sure like the feeling of getting eggs and a slightly sustainable existence, meat grown in my yard. And garden health was sorely lacking before i got fertilizer-makers.

Can you tell me what your other is so I can add it as an option, please?
Sustainability.

And history. I am considering adding Dominiques to my list of desired breeds in hope of being able to bring a few exhibition birds to American Revolution historical reenactments and events (DH works at a Rev War site).
