I love chickens. I had pet chickens as a child. Actually I had a large flock of various (bantams, polish - loved the 'hair'-dos, buffs, barred, etc) but a few were very special pets who I would cart around, love on and what not. My next campaign, after pasture pal for Aero, will be to add chickens to the "farm". I miss having them around, and they were great bug eaters.

Let me know how the eating of the turkeys goes. Whenever we'd butcher chickens we ended up giving them to neighbors because I couldn't eat my pets.

Funny title. I'm sorry to hear that your riding season is over, but I'm glad you found something to keep you busy. I hope all goes well with your surgeries.

Hey KT glad to see you! I love chickens, never had any other types of fowl. Do you really think you will be able to eat the turkey at Thanksgiving?
