Of course you want some!

Everyone should have a few chickens as pets.

Seriously!

Even city dwellers with tiny back yards should have access to a couple of hens - did you know that many cities and suburbs allow you to keep a few as pets? You should totally check it out, you may be in a lucky zoning and be able to discover the joy of chickens!

They offer you:
  • fresh healthy eggs
  • pest and weed control
  • excellent fertilizer
  • hours of entertainment
  • chatty, personable pets
  • great subject of conversation
  • excellent for kids
  • chicks are sooo sweet
  • easy and inexpensive to keep
  • etc, etc

The only problem is they're quite addictive, you start with just a few and end up with a bunch... a big bunch... :-D

Speaking of which, I may be due to add a couple of girls to the flock soon.

He he!

I agree, it would be fun only I know that there is no way Skye would allow it!

I don't think they are addictive. I started with 6 and now only have 134. Nope not addictive at all.

I would love to have 2 or 3 chickies, always been a fan, but I think they would drive my puppies nuts
