    I have wanted to have chickens so badly but have not lived where I could keep them. If it were up to me I'd have 2 of each type of chickens. I was an Activities Director in Nursing Homes for about 8 years and loved it. I am currently unemployed and instead of waiting to find another job, I've decided to start a blog for Nursing Home Activity Directors. If you want to find out want Nursing Homes and Chickens have in common, please go read my post. And please leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

    I used to work in a nursing home. We had Don, an RN, who brought many animals while he worked his shift. His big red hen was always a hit. She would walk around and found favorite people to visit, he'd just put a diaper on her (a real people diaper LOL!) and she'd quietly walk from room to room, friendly. I don't think anybody complained.

    Always got a few complaints when he'd come to work covered in baby racoons, though.
