I can hardly contain my excitement! Tomorrow afternoon we are adding new (temporary) members to our family.

25 White Cornish Rock hens! (or meat chickens to those who don't speak chicken).

We have issues with the way meat is made, but seriously, have you checked out the price of pasture raised chicken, let alone local pasture raised chicken? Well I have, how about 3.99 a lb? Oh and you buy it by the whole chicken. Eek! Talk about an expensive chicken!

Lucky for me I have this friend who has the perfect yard for our little cluck (gaggle? mob?...) of urban chickens, and she is crazy enough to have had the same idea at the same time.

So tomorrow Fish, Pup, Kanga, and Roo will have 25 little white pets, I would venture to say one may even be named Biote.


  1. Are you serious?! This is amazing. I can't wait to see/hear about this adventure! You're awesome amy...

  2. This is crazy! Can we have chicken???? Oh I miss you and your sweeties!
