    Even though I'm more of a duck person, chickens have a funny personality that just makes your day!

    I am one of those people that doesn't "get it". I have chickens. I have lots of chickens. I just don't like them very much. (I miss my ducks. I like them much better!) That being said, I think your ninja chicken is good looking!

    Well I traded my chickens for a half dozen butchered rabbits for the freezer this a.m. I was forced to get rid of them because I am moving back to town.

    Is this a move for the better? Maybe you can have a few hens in the back yard.
