Happy Birthday, Hens!

Last year our birds hatched on April 18 (we think, since they were day-old baby chicks).

They were fluffy and VERY cute.

"Peep, peep, peep!" they said.

We are going to give them a birthday present this year.

They deserve it because the main problem we've encountered is "what to do with all these eggs?!"

The people around here all have chickens or a steady supply of local eggs.

So you see that chickens are a good idea (maybe there are people who can eat your extra eggs nearby!)

Books for the possible chicken owner:

Keep Chickens!
The most friendly chicken book available!
Informative and funny with three amusing true stories and
photos of beautiful hens and coops in the back.

Hobby Farms: Chickens
Another useful book.
Full color photos and a page of information to help you choose
a great breed for "pleasure or profit!"
