Fresh eggs daily

I have always wanted chickens in my backyard. What a great way to connect to the environment and harvest fresh food, besides chickens are fun and can be very beautiful.

My dreams of raising city chickens reached a new mod level when my mother showed me a picture of Chicken Cribs ( Because one of the things that was holding me back from being a city farmer was actually constructing a well crafted coop, I now feel my new obsession is suddenly, stylishly within reach.

Only a few simple steps left:

1. What until Chicken Cribs start shipping their coops out of state (which is supposed to occur this month).

2. Choose and attend a backyard chicken keeping class from Seattle Tilth:

3. Decide whether or not I want to start from eggs or chicks. When I was in elementary school I created an incubator from a cardboard box and hatched a chicken from a fertilized egg. I was such a proud mama!

Happy chicken keeping!

  2. Oh wow! This makes me happy and hopeful that you'll have chickens and we can come visit them since life in the suburbs=no urban farming for us.
