“Chicken People”

I have a confession to make, I used to think “chicken people” were weird.  What’s all the fuss about?  Aren’t chickens dirty, stinky, noisy and dumb?  Who has the time or money to mess with chickens when you can easily buy all the chicken and poop free eggs in a quick trip to the store?  And all chicken people seem to do is talk and brag about their chickens…


I now find myself driving my husband nuts running in and out of his shop showing him eggs and telling him stories about my wonderful, funny hens.  Then I text my family and friends pictures and brag about all the nice big brown eggs they are laying.  Oh, and by the way,  MY hens aren’t dirty, stinky, noisy or dumb; and there is no comparing a farm fresh egg (even with a little poop) to a store bought egg!!

So maybe “chicken people” ARE weird, but what’s wrong with being a little weird if you are having a good time and supplying your family with good wholesome food….Right?

As long as I’m admitting that I’m a “weird chicken person” and my family is sick of hearing about my hens, I guess I have to do all my bragging on my blog.  So here are a few pictures of my girls…and my other girls (wow, I have a lot of girls).  I guess weird chicken people also take TONS of pictures of their chickens (and their kids). 😉

Look how fast their feathers grow!

  1. It is great to know you have joined the “weird people” who name their chickens and find them more entertaining than television. My group of girls won’t touch cabbage, but go nuts over lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower and yogurt. I will have to try squash.

    Great site Grace. I look forward to hearing from the red doublewide!

  2. The love of chickens sneaks up on you. We inherited three hens when we bought our property five months ago and it was such a blessing. We now have five hens and two roosters. I want to talk about them all the time and my once only sewing/quilting blog is turning into a chicken blog!
