You Big Chicken

Here are my memories of raising chickens in picture form. 

I couldn't find any pictures of the following items:
-Skunks in the chicken yard
-Adriane falling in chicken poop in the rain
-10 year old girls struggling to carry 5 gallon buckets of water across the yard
-Handmade paper signs that read "K & L Chick Hatchery" taped to the barn

But I did find these and they bring back some pretty fond memories!

We never had any chickens that laid eggs.  I always thought that would be fun but it never happened.  I also know there are no pictures of me holding any chickens.  There was no chicken holding going on on our farm.  A lot of yelling, shooing, chasing and door slamming but no holding.

We did talk Dad in to a few of these fancy breeds towards the end so it was all good. 

Nowadays,  my exposure to chickens is limited to the meat department at the grocery store.  And the 2 1/2 dozen eggs I pick up a little further down the aisle.
 I am pretty  happy to keep it that way, for now.

Hey, Happy National Poultry Day! Who knew??

(And all chicken tastes better when served up in Pyrex.)

Especially chicken (shaped) cut out cookies.
