Do you raise chickens for the eggs, the meat, the companionship?? Well for me it was the eggs, then the fun of watching them, feeding them, watching them brings a peace to you. Are you shaking your head with me, 😁 You become overtaken by them, with love ❤🐓
Chickens become family, a friend, joy unknown. So the next time someone asks you about your chickens, tell them all the reasons you raise chickens, smile and let your chicken OCD Come gushing out. 🐓💗
