One of my many dreams growing up was to have chickens. Don’t ask me why but I used to fantasize about living on a farm or a sprawling rural property where you could disappear and be ‘lost’ for hours. I wanted horses (of course), cows, goats, pigs (who doesn’t love pigs?), my own dog, and chickens (and maybe a few ducks). As I grew up, I filed my little daydreams, thinking maybe one day. Well, guess what. After 2 years of living on our sprawling (read jungle) property – we now have CHICKENS!!!! So read on to find out how we get on. I wonder if it will be everything I dreamt of!
