Our chickens have definitely been a huge adventure for us. We have repurposed a barn from Home Depot, you know the pre-built kind, into a chicken coop. We’ve researched how to free-range and raise them ethically. We’ve studied how to take care of them properly to get the best egg production while still caring for them as animals, not just producers.
And we have loved what they give us. Their beautiful, tasty, delicious eggs. I was leery at first, but I will tell you, store bought eggs just do not compare in my opinion. Not only the taste, but just the knowing.
Knowing what our girls eat, how they are cared for, and how much they are loved makes eating what they give us a pleasure. It’s their gift to us.
But I will tell you, as much as I love our chickens, I’m not jumping in line to sign the petition to change the Georgia state bird from the brown thrasher to a chicken. Would you?
