the great chicken conspiracy


OK - I am not making this up. Everywhere I turn, there's more info on backyard chickens.

More stuff on how cool it is to have chickens around - see This Week in Chickens at Garden Rant. What to do for vacation chicken care? Check out this article.

It appears:

1. They're not noisy
2. They don't stink
3. They're not much more trouble than the average dog or cat

So there.

Now. I wonder how hard it will be to find a couple that lay those pretty blue eggs?

Ask Martha Stewart....she has that particular breed (Ana....something or others; sounds like Anaconda, but that's a snake) They come in blues and greens......but I'm definitely still not in favor of raising chickens. They DO smell (the manure) and they are a lot of work and Martha once said she figured that a dozen of her eggs would cost about $76.80 if you figured out what she spent!!!!
