I was thinking yesterday about what made me want to own chickens (don't have any yet), and I starting wondering what got all of you into them. So please, share your story! What got me into chickens is my mom has a friend that owned them. They were red, I think they were hatchery RIR though I can't be sure. I used to love to watch them eat and would catch frogs for them. It seems like the more research I do on chickens, the more I want them, haha! .
