Have you considered joining the back yard chicken craze?
I keep hearing more and more people are getting chickens. If you are considering it or have done it recently, what is your plan for taking care of them?
We've had chickens for the past 5 years. 25 of them at least at all times. They are really easy to care for, can live in a small space- 2 sq ft per bird shelter space and eat bugs, weeds and pay for themselves in eggs.
I remebmer we had chickens growing up....I loved going out and getting the eggs for breakfast in the morning but I didn't like having to clean the coop once a week. I think we had about 40 (but I was a kis then so I could be remember that number wrong...there were a lot of them). They mostly just ate the bugs and stuff in the ground but we did scatter chicken feed in the areas we wanted them to go to them most.
I'm not going to join, partly because I live in a city and partly because I remember how horrible the smell was when the neighbors had them a few years ago (of course, they were not properly cared for...).
I'd say if you have enough space and have the resources to properly care for them, go for it.
No. I hate chickens and would never consider having them near my home.

Is the newest craze, "Sunburn Art", really an art form?Sunburn art is the idea of placing a template on your skin and laying in the sun until you burn the form onto it. Is this considered art or not?

I think we pretty much decided it was the egg before the chicken. So, the seed came before the apple. But how did the egg and the seed form?????Wondering(Actually,I would say, in the realm of science there is no answer...
