    Just wondering if anyone else out there is amused by the new yuppie trendy chicken raising thing. To be fair, I only got mine a year before the chicken explosion hit and Sunset raised them and wrote a blog.

    Still, is it a good thing for chickens or bad? Will people learn to appreciate their food? Will they just flood the animal shelters with unwanted chickens in a year or so? Thoughts?

    Well this may be the first trend that, when it goes out of fashion, you can just eat the product!

    I wanted chickens for years. It's not a trend for me. I am in it for life. I love my feathered kids.
