i want to be a famous person with chickens. i have a back yard, an old farmhouse and a fenced space.
Sound like it's time get a few chicks!
My city home has a back yard and a chain link dog enclosure that I use as a chicken yard. Bought my Rhode Island Reds as babies, when I was on a driving vacation through Georgia. They traveled well. I took rest stops and let then play a little in road side grass. When we got to a motel that night I took them into the room. The manager came in to fix something and mentioned "No pets". I said I was an ecological contamination inspecter and those chicks were my assay for pollution. He never said another word.The girls have a traveling pen, a circle of chicken wire that I move from place to place in the yard and so they can scrounge for bugs. My carpenter built a house for them on a frame similar to a wheel barrel with two wheels in the front and two handles in the back. That way I can move them around so their droppings go into different areas of my vegatable garden. Listening to those girls sing, watching them take a dust bath, it makes my day. Ann
Great photos on this blog. Thanks a lot for sharing.
A self portrait with chickens isn't a good idea at all it's such a bore
