Raising Chickens.

Along with my three kids, I also have eight chickens that I am raising.  I never realized how wonderful chickens were as pets until we got our first six chicks last spring.  We lost one this winter, Pepper RIP.  And we just got three more chicks to introduce to the flock this spring.

They are wonderful companions in the garden, they eat most of the pesky insects and grubs, and my kids love to help take care of them.  Not to mention all the delicious eggs.  There is nothing like retrieving eggs from the nest box and cooking them fresh.  Yum.
