I know I do not have time to have chicks in a cute chicken coop in my yard. But, I sure would like to have some and also it would be so nice to have fresh eggs.
Isn't this the greatest luxury chicken house ( too beautiful to call a coop) you have ever seen? Check out https://heatherbullard.com/2012/11/at-home-chez-poulet-coop-chickens/ It is special. Needless to say, I would never be able to have such a luxurious home for my babies
I have not been able to get this idea out of my head for the past three years. This year is not a good year to start this project since I will be traveling in June and again in August which I am very excited about. But, I still want some chicks.
When I was growing up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, we always had chickens in the back yard and I clearly remember the fresh eggs. I did not realize how wonderful it was at the time. The chicks were not free range but they surely gave us great eggs.
Maybe, next year will be the Year of the Chick for me. It usually takes me some time to bring my ideas to fruition. Check back with me. There still may be chicks in my future!
And, to all of you chick owners - Enjoy.
