6 Top Chickens to explore
Thinkin' 'bout Chickens...
Chickens have come up several times, lately, as noted below. Just could not resist the opportunity to do an article about Chickens.
First, my early days and chickens. Then, my good friend at StateoftheOzarks.net magazines writes about Chickens.
Finally, there are already some good articles of Chickens, of different kinds. What more could I ask. Come take a look! ;-)

The funny thing was, in 30 years, thanks to Tyson, etc., being a BIG chicken farmer was a very desirable career, in my hometown! ;-)

This appears to be a very important topic, so I am pleased to add it to this lens.
Leave your comments on 'rescue chickens' below. I look forward to them.
