New Chicken Mom
Drove my daughter to school today and saw two neighbors with half built coops. I guess I am not the only one with chicken fever in my neighborhood. Seriously think I have the fever!!

you are in no way nuts youre smart and you are seeing where things are headed all you need to do is look around. I think some people are walking around with blinders on and dont have a clue. then there's people like us that prepare for the worst and hope for the best but either way we got it covered there's nothing nuts about that! plus look at all the things we learnYes, I think that is at the bottom of all this. The message is clear that we have to remember who we are and where we came from. There seems to be very little trust in the good chain anymore. We love our kids too much and we are a little tired of being lied to.
Or am I just nuts?!?
My thoughts exactly! I think that keeping chickens sparks a little independence in people and benefits us all. Making people less dependent is a great thing! LOLI'm not sure about the "new trend" thing but one thing is for sure people are beginning to see how good it feels
to be a little bit self sufficient with the sky rocketing prices of groceries these days and how hard its becoming to feed thier
families, here a dozen brown eggs are 3.99 a dozen so that little bit I save at the store and the eggs I sell makes up for
the price of feed and then some. I also garden and can fruits and vegi's all summer long so my cellar pantry is full all winter, the ladies eat
very well in the summer with all the gardening I do plus every year I get really cheap sweet corn from local farmers and fill the chest
freezer full so the ladies can enjoy corn all season, I trade eggs for corn as well. I think the bottom line is we as chicken keepers are getting
back to basics and enjoy the value of doing things for ourselves rather then being completely dependant. there's nothing like making a good breakfast
with your own eggs, toast I make with my own bread fried yellow gold potatoes from the garden and homemade pork sausage yum now I'm hungry!
the bennefits far out weight the effort in my oppinion and I hope more people see how rewarding it is....
