Moved out of the city recently, thank goodness. Not a city girl. I have never had chickens before, although almost everyone else in my family has had them at some point. I also have a fear of birds(except birds of prey, makes no sense) thanks, Dad, for letting me watch The Birds at six years old, and thanks to my sister's huge, giant, did I say ,huge and mean Leghorn rooster, Pete. But, for some reason, I have recently developed a strong urge to have chickens. So now I have eight adorable little Barred Rocks residing in my dining room and a coop under construction.
