People always ask me "why chickens?", "did you grow up on a farm?", or "have you always wanted chickens?". The odd thing is, I did NOT grow up on a farm (neither of us did) and I have no idea why I was so hell-bent on getting chickens. I guess I just liked the idea of them, there is something so quaint and country about chickens. Honestly, I thought they would be an easy first step toward livestock. Three years in, easy is not a word I would use to describe them.
