So, you want to keep backyard chickens? Some lessons are painful and expensive to learn by experience, so in the hope of sparing some growing pains for those about to embark on chicken-keeping, I have asked my Facebook fans what they wish they had known before they began keeping chickens. The following are some of their replies and a few of my own.

Is this the next step? Raising chickens is no longer for the rural farmer. Hobby farming within the boundaries of a residential lot is all the craze, making your morning omelet taste so much better with fresh eggs from the backyard. Most chicken coops take up less room than a toolshed, and although raising chickens may seem overwhelming, daily tasks are easy enough for teens to complete
I love the sign on the door

Are Chickens in Your Future? Spring has a way of rejuvenating the soul and enticing us to seek out new life. We plot our gardens with great anticipation, already tasting that first ripe tomato in our minds. We eagerly keep our eyes open for the first robin. We explode with joy as the first daffodil peeks out of the awakening soil.

After she hurt her foot, Mabel the chicken was brought into a home with new Rottweiler puppies. The chicken watched on as the mother of the pups nursed, and as soon as she left to take a break, Mabel hopped right in! Immediately she took to the puppies as if they were her own and a new, modern-day family was born
Interspecies animal friendships: Hen and puppies
A one-year-old hen has adopted a litter of puppies much to the bemusement of their canine mother. Mabel has taken to keeping the small dogs warm by snuggling up to them while their mother, Nettle, sits out in the yard at a farm Never have I thought a chicken with puppies is cuter than this!
Silly chicken, those aren't eggs!
