|My Chicken Coop 'Coup du Jour'|
[Turns out my coop is very old, having been the historical estate home next door's coop before they subdivided the land post WWII to build my home. ]
It all seemed serendipitous since not only did I have a coop, lived in a chicken friendly town, but a feed store, aptly named The Feed Store that carried chickens was the same place we got those ducks and bunnies as a kid. A quick chat on chicken raising with the staff and I drove home with 6 baby chicks and bags of chicken chow. I created my French kitchen garden the same summer. Eggs were gifted to me by fall as well as something else - Community.

Why I love my Chickens:
- Daily fresh organic eggs.
- The best organic fertilizer for my garden.
- All my veggie, bread and fruit scraps that would have been in the garbage - feeds my chickens.
- When free ranging, eat bugs keeping my garden pest free.
- Creates community.
- Fun to have
