You probably don’t know this, unless you are a close friend, but I like to try out hobbies most people would find quite weird. I can remember when I use to make everything out of duck-tape, and even made a duck-tape dress. I only wore the dress a couple times, because so many people would give my crazy stares. One thing I picked up this year is the hobby of raising chickens. The reason I wanted to try it out, was due to the chickens I saw at the White House. As I was walking by, I saw that they had a couple chickens in their backyard and thought it was pretty cool.
Here is a picture of my daughter feeding our chickens:
The rooster is named, Bruce, and is named after my sons favorite super hero; Batman. I let me daughter, Robin name all the hens, and they are all Disney princess names, like Bell, Jasmine, Elsa, and Anna. I missed a few but we have 12 hens in total and one Rooster. I did get two more hens, Elsa and Anna, so we used a barn type coop design, so all the hens would have room to spread their wings, no pun intended. I was able to talk with Susan Orlean, and she was able to help me expanded by little chicken farm. As of now, I would say that I love this hobby and plan on doing it for many years to come.
Let me know, if you plan of getting some hens for your backyard in the comments.
