Thank you so much, all of you that have been interested in learning about chickens and how to give them a good life. Chickens are really incredible and have so long been considered disposable, stupid, and worthless beyond food, and nothing could be further than the truth. I have been lucky enough to be around birds my entire life, and have had companion parrots since I was 5 years old. I love my parrots, but it is clear that they are complex, emotional, and for the most part still very wild animals and only make good pets/companions for a small number of people. Chickens have been domesticated for thousands of years, and love living around people. My chickens have been the sweetest and most entertaining pets/companions I’ve had in my life, and I’m happy that so many people are interested in them! Chickens are often what people think they want in a pet bird but don’t realize it– intelligent, entertaining, personable, and some are very friendly. Some will sit in my lap and nap while I pet them like a cat, with no emotional baggage or social behavior that is complex beyond the understanding of the average owner (the way parrots are!). Chickens are just wonderful pets. That said, please don’t make a chicken into something it is not; only a few breeds are truly suitable as house pets, and most chickens are very social. Meaning: Most (not all but most) chickens are happiest outdoors with other chickens! As with all animals, careful research and suitable housing will result in a much happier relationship!
“Howdy Folks! You like blood? Violence? Freaks of nature? Well then, come
on down to Captain Spaulding’s Museum of Monsters and Mad-Men. See the
Alligator Boy, ride my famous Murder Ride. Most of all, don’t forget to
take home some of my tasty fried chicken! Ha ha! It just tastes so damn
Can’t even begin to say how easy this meal prep was! I made two of these little salads 3 days ago & it was still so so good! Used shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken, black beans, diced tomato, & I added avocado today (so that it stayed fresh), all on a bed of lettuce.
