Rush Hour


Think your morning commute is tough? When I pop open the trap door on our chicken coop, it's like a Chinese fire drill. The chickens, ducks and goose come charging out like there's no tomorrow, follow me over to the grain bin, and chow down--all while a couple bullying roosters enforce the pecking order. Just another day at the office.

Great photo! We have 3 little chicks on order with our local nursery. Can't wait to get on the backyard chicken bandwagon.

Ohhhhhhh, I want chickens!

Kim and Victoria--You're gonna have fun! Chickens may not be cuddly pets, but their antics are always amusing.

Sheila--They are fun. We got bantams, which are kind of dinky, hoping they'd not do much damage to the garden. Ours free range, and they sure do dig and scratch! We'll see what happens.
