The country girl still in me
Country Living with Chickens .... good and bad idea! Fluffy chicks are making an appearance in pet and feed stores right now, just in time for spring. Gathering eggs is the biggest benefit to keeping chickens, but the birds also contribute to the garden. They produce tons of manure that you can compost and they gobble up weeds and slugs if you toss them into their run. Thinking about getting chickens? Consider a breed that not only lays lots of eggs, but makes a good pet.
