Who would have thought twelve tiny balls of down could change so many things? They had to have a coop, and a run, so the appearance of the back yard changed. I fell in love with a book advocating holistic care of the flock, and herbs became not just desirable, but essential to my garden plans. We will not be keeping roosters out of consideration for the neighbors, so we must decide what breed, or breeds, we want as replacements. Hank and Low Rider, the family dogs, must be trained not to harass the chicks. And we must train ourselves to be reasonable in the time we spend observing our flock as they go about their daily routine. Yes, chickens change things.

COMING SOON!!! The Chicken Caper Chronicles. A journal of living with a small backyard flock of hens. Drop by now and then to follow along with our new venture.
