City Dwellin, Chicken Havin Folks

I heard that at a New Year's gathering from one of my neighbors, who was decribing some other neighbors who have some "heirloom" chickens. Here in Roanoke, we're allowed to have chickens and other sorts of birds. I wish I could have a couple of sheep, but alas it is not to be. And yes, I fantasize about having pretty egg laying critters all the time. It's prolly too much work for me at this point but wouldn't it be fun to be a city dwelling, chicken having folk?

I love my neighbors.

Mmmm... fresh eggs! I love them. I don't think my dogs would get along with chickens, but when we moved into our house our neighbor had chickens. The raccoons got them, though.

My neighbors have been great about sharing their eggs. So incredibly yummy - even the oragnic free range eggs at the coop don't taste as fabulous.

If I ever get chickens I am going to have to build them a fortress. :) Maybe a Taj Mahal? :)
