    The chicken thread

    They love overripe tomatoes, too, Doolittle! I have an adult Plymouth Rock hen and silver laced Wyandotte hen, and just picked up some new chicks on Saturday: Aracauna, Black Star, and Buff Orpington! I had a couple more hens but the neighbor's feral cats got them in November.

    Buff Orpington's are pretty. We had some of those.

    We want chickens! In minneapolis we've gotta get annual permission from neighbors within 100ft and we could have some, no roosters allowed.

    Once we have our own place..

    We're also trying to convince her parents to move to their weekend place full time (where we have 120 acres of woodland, a large garden, and plenty of space for farm animals) for the summer and raise some poultry.

    The chicken thread

    Doolittle,

    I've been trying to convince my girlfriend (solarsoldier) that we need to get a chicken. She keeps saying no..

    Tell her how ridiculous that is!

    Seriously??? GET CHICKENS!! They are awesome. Fun to watch and listen too. Fresh eggs are the best. And chickens have the goofiest quirky personalities. Check out backyard chickens, all the info you could ever want.

    I keep trying to tell her. I'm just going to put one in the backyard and see how long it takes her to notice

    I've got chickens!

    Speckled Sussex, Golden-laced Wyandotte, Silver-laced Wyandotte, Columbian Wyandotte, Buff Silky Bantam, and Americauna/Maran cross (2 blacks and a blue).

    Not actually supposed to have a rooster, but my neighbors haven't complained.
















    From when they were itty bitty chicks:



    I have more pictures, but need to get them uploaded.
    Why keep a snake? Why keep any animal? Because you enjoy the animal, find something beautiful and fascinating about it, and it fits seamlessly into your lifestyle.
