Friends tend to be incredulous when I say I'd like to raise chickens full-time somday. The truth is that I don't even know if I'd be able to do it "part-time." But I saw a story on TV last Friday on ABC 7 News (San Francisco) about suburban dwellers (including one former mayor of a small town) who were raising their own chickens (primarily for eggs). That reawakened my interest in raising chickens, both for healthier food and also to save money. Rod Dreher makes this suggestion 0n the Texas Monthly website. Avian flu! I hope not. So who wants to raise chickens with me?
