    All the time I get people saying WHY??? when I mention we raise our own meat and eggs. It cracks me up. If the uninformed masses would do a little rug-lifting and discover where and how their store-bought eggs and meat came from they might think about getting a couple of their own chickens. Our ladies give us a lot of what we need without asking for much in return. The roosters gave us a little more crowing than our newborn could handle and ended up in a pot of soup! What's wrong or weird about caring about what goes in our mouths?

    Sometimes 'weird' can be a good thing - I've been telling myself that for a long time. [​IMG] Welcome to BYC.

    Greetings- I have a sign in our laundry room that says "normal around here is just a setting on the washing machine"
    I live by that motto daily. I can't say you are unique while we are all in the same chicken forum. However, I can say we are
    all in great company. Our girls haven't started laying yet. I hope to get my first batch of meat birds after the girls
    start laying. Don't ask me why, I just have to take baby steps right now. The anticipation is exhilarating [​IMG]
