Chickens make great pets

posted 6 years ago

We kept chickens for years. They were are pets and the eggs we got were an added bonus. My father (passed on now) used to teach them tricks. We let them free roam during the day and locked them down to protect them at night, so when ever we pulled in the driveway they'd come running like dogs. A great pet, especially if you have allergies and can't have an indoor pet. [getting off my egg carton, I mean soap box now].

The annual subscription price for this magazine is $21.00 US and I think it's well worth the price. I wish it had been around when we first got chickens.

The December 2008/January 2009 issue has the following articles:

Homestead Flock: Pets or Partners?
Preparing Poultry for Winter.
The Eggcentric Artist ( carving eggs as art)
The Cock's Crow (anatomy of crowing, how to minimize it, why do some hens crow)
Poultry Saddles (breeding article)
Hoilday gift ideas for your chickens
Breeds: Asils
In addition to the articles they have:
Coming Events
Youth pages
Breeders Directory...and lots of ads.

Pros: Wide range of topics covered. Specific section for youth

Cons: None.

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
