    Hi everyone...

    I know this is probably the wrong space, but I figured people behaviours fell most closely to this catagory. Hopefully the mods will move it if it is too incorrectly placed.

    My father told me he was watching a tv show and it featured famous people that are raising their own chickens. But having the memory of a seive, I forgot who he was talking about. So, I thought there must be people here that know this sort of thing- and I might be able to get even more names... (I am writing an article and this would be very helpful!)

    Thank you in advance for your time and consideration...

    I recall that Alton Brown said in an interview that he wanted to start raising chickens this year, but don't know if he actually is or not.

    I googled it for fun, I'm bored while I wait for my 10 egg pound cake to bake, and found this one I didn't know about:

    Jennie Garth and her husband Peter Facinelli have eschewed the Hollywood lifestyle for something a little earthier. The actress and her family live on a ranch outside Los Angeles, and it's populated with the kind of animals you might expect in the country: "Horses, dogs, cats, goats, chickens and a pig."
