It’s funny you should ask. A year ago, I’d say, “Heck no…chickens are BORING, DIRTY, DUMB creatures!” Mike was the chicken fan. I wanted “real” livestock, like goats, sheep and cows. Now? Well, I’ve kind of become a convert. Obviously, there is the cool factor of collecting your own eggs, and sharing them with friends & family. But, let me tell you…you won’t need reality TV once you get a few hens in your backyard. Don’t believe me? Check out what went down at Blue Yurt Farms yesterday.
Here I was, minding my own business…trying to get a few good shots of our single Easter Egger chicken (the grey hen) for a Facebook photo contest.
And, that’s when the drama started.
