I have this lovely dream about raising chickens one day on our farm. I know the whole cleaning the coop thing is disgusting but I figure that is one perk to having so many littles around, right? ;) I know chickens will be work but it would be splendid to not pay $4 for a dozen eggs or $3-4 a pound for meat. (For those of you gasping, remember we buy pastured, organic chickens.) Plus, can't you just picture my sweet little ladies gathering eggs? Ahhh.
Well, after reading this , I'm re-thinking chickens. I've always said snakes don't bother me but the idea of reaching in & touching one under a chicken, freaks me out a bit! There are no snakes in my dream.
