Fine Feathers in your Backyard


It has been awhile since I posted about raising your own chickens....

This couple is trying to overturn Imperial Beach's ban on urban chickens, which is happening all around the country. See Urban Chicken Ordinances.

For more great
 information see Urban Chickens.




They are great entertainment and they really do make the best eggs ever!

I would love to have chickens, but am not home regularly enough to care for them. But I do love fresh eggs of the non-commercial farm variety.

Wow chickens!!
Do you raise them for just the eggs or do you eventually butcher them as well (new here so please no offense!)

At this point just for eggs. They all have names and personalities...they are great pets with benefits.

Hi,
Thanks for the visit to my blog. I love chickens but unfortunately am unable to raise them here in my little Colorado neighborhood. I was just in Key West and had a great time watching them run around the island.

We to have chickens, I just wish I had room for more....

Janet we found wandering around outside out junior school, so I picked her up, tucked her under me arm and bought her home...

Mabel was just in our little back garden when we woke up one Sunday morning, we have no clue as to how she got here..

and Cedric is a cockeral that me matie had and her neighbours complained so she ask me if we would have him.......

Janet and Mabel are right proper famous over on Twaddle lol

I'd love to have chickens around here, but I'm afraid the distance between houses is not great enough. We get great eggs from our CSA, though!

I think its own how some communities allow chickens like the city of Seattle but the rural island I live on has bans in many neighborhoods. I'm all for chickens since we own 15 girls.

I can vouch for the coolness of your chickens! Now that I'm taking care of them while you're gone, which includes feeding them, I've been accepted as one of the clan. There have been 5 new eggs every other day that I've been going and they are the best eggs ever! Last night I went over with my friend who is visiting from out of town and she had so much fun feeding them and leading them up and down the path to the coop! Thanks for the opportunity to experience what it's like to take care of them. Not as scary as I thought it would be...

We share chickens with our neighbours and it is wonderful. It is so great to have fresh eggs from happy healthy hens.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
