Before I post pictures of the girls, I wanted to share this article that a friend shared with me a few days ago. In England, there is a movement to curb depression and isolation by introducing chicken keeping to the elder community. I think this is a heartwarming idea – I know how happy my chickens make me! Anyway, it’s impossible to read this article and not smile. I wonder how a similar program would give over in the States. See the entire article here: Chickens helping the elderly tackle loneliness.
It’s 37 degrees outside right now, and while I would like to be spending times with the chickens, it’s too cold for me! They don’t seem to mind the temperature at all – they’re out roaming the yard and snacking on cauliflower! I took a bunch of pictures, but most of them came out very blurry. The girls do NOT like the camera.
