I’m a backyard chicken keeper who thought it would be nice to have a few chickens. What I didn’t realize was that there were so many things that I didn’t know about chickens when I brought those adorable little chicks home.
The reason that I’ve decided to write about chickens is to share the Chicken Scoop about things that are happening around here. Things I’ve learned along the way, times my chickens have done something to make me laugh or I’ve had to deal with something related to caring for them. There is never a dull moment with my little Seramas or in my larger Chickens Coop.
I love spending time interacting with my chickens and watching them interact with each other. A whole new world has opened up right in my backyard. I hear their chatter, their different calls, their little squabbles, and their egg songs. Its absolutely fascinating to watch them. They each have their own personality and they are very smart. Not long after I brought that little box of baby chicks home I fell in love with them and while I knew one day I would get eggs I never expected that I would get pure joy from being around them.
