Is it just me, or does it seem like there are a lot of knitting blogs out there that turned into chicken keeping blogs. Remember way back when - there were a handful of us uber-knitting-nerds who couldn't get enough bloggy goodness about other peoples yarn and pattern yumminess? And then some of the blogs evolved into cooking and cleaning an organizing and some blogs even showed us just how OCD some of our crafty friends could be.
I still knit. I really do. And crochet. Still working on my big, ugly afghan. But I'm so run-around-like-crazy-like-a-chicken-with-its-head-cut-off, that I haven't really had time to sit and knit and tell you all about it. And yes, I miss it. And mostly - I miss all of you.
But now that I've mentioned chickens. I may as well tell you that after about four years of researching and scratching my head and lobbying heavily at the doorstep of The Husband - I finally called my local happy-hippy farmer store and ordered four chicks. You know, they are not expensive and they don't even do a background check. What if I also happen to own a boa-constrictor? Wouldn't you want to know if you were selling chicks? I would.
I don't have a boa, but I do have a bird dog. Did they sell them to me anyway - YES! And they were very nice about it. And did the husband approve? Kind of. Did my city approve? Nope. Am I going ahead with it anyway? Yup.
So for now, this little bloggy will be about my new adventure with my little hens. I know there are people out there like me who have about a million questions about raising chickens and so hopefully I will entertain you and answer some questions along the way. But it will be a learn as we go, people. I'm just figuring all this out in real time.
And now . . . . ONWARD!
