    My Girls Are Pullet Princesses

    For the last ten years or so I have had the strangest urge to raise chickens. It started with an article I saw in a gardening magazine. The story featured a woman who lived in New England and kept a small coop of hens in her garden. The coop was the centerpiece of her garden...

    We kept a few pet chickens at my house for a little while. They stayed in the kitchen hallway. My uncle bought three bantams, a red rooster (George), a black rooster (Matt), and a black hen (Erica). Matt and Erica stayed in the same cage, and we had to keep George in a separate...

    The Pecking Order

    I like chicken, and chickpeas and Chiclets and chick flicks and chickadees. But mostly I just like chickens. The winged feather version. Bawk-bawk-bawk style. Female chickens actually. The ladies are feisty *******. Real life mean girls with a very estranged status structure. Yes...

    The Curious Playful Chick...

    My landlord has a large collection of chickens. When one of them had a large group of chicks, I decided to "tame" them. I would crumble bread/seeds/chips in my hand and sit in front of them with my hand out. They would all climb into my hand and jostle each other for space and...

    My Pets Were Taught To Approach People Who Clap And Call Their Names

    I find it cute. =) Some people think chickens have a small brain - I still think they're smart, and will grow smarter, still. Especially if you treat them nicely (I think it goes for most animals ^_^)

    We Have Chickens Too!

    One day I came back from a fast food place, and decided to eat my lunch on a seat outside. Two of our hens, I don't know the breed, were outside under the bushes and came shyly up to my feet. After looking at me and "talking" to each other for a moment, one of them suddenly...

    Chickens Rule Ok

     they are probably the most underrated best, but the most rewarding. Most people dont realise that they all have a different personality, and can be as loving, funny, and sometimes even caring. Definitely more entertaining than any dog or cat.

    Ours Are 4 Weeks Old..

    We have 10 chickens, all girls we think.  This past week we moved them into the coop.  They aren't free ranging yet, when the weather gets nice though they will be feathered enough to go outside.
