It seems you love chickens and monitoring their habits and moods. Are you running some sort of chicken business or just have them as pets.


We do love our chickens! Chicken business? Well, we are hoping to sell some organic eggs once we have built up our flock. In the meantime, we enjoy our daily and delicious farm-fresh eggs, the occasional broiler chicken that we butcher, and the pest control that our free-range chickens provide (in one year, a single chicken can eat over a million bugs, including ticks and other nuisance bugs!). On top of that (literally) their manure is one high-grade fertilizer!

oh my is right. We had our first snow fall, I let the chickens out, but they did no come back at dark just four of them and I had to hunt around in the dark to find the other 7. One was in the middles of the lawn (for a second I thought it was a rock) I picked it up and put it in the coop, I found the other 6 huddled up behind the barbeque on the deck and had to carry them in one by one. It is going to be a challenge.
