Here a chick. There a chick. Everywhere a chick, chick.

Ol' Mc.. ME? had a farm? 

No, not exactly.  But we are considering keeping a few chickens.  Seriously considering.  And researching what exactly is involved.  Reading some things online, getting ready to grab a few books at the library, or maybe B&N.  Looking at chicken coop ideas and plans.  That sort of thing.

What has brought on this sudden surge of domestic homesteading?  Well, I could blame it on the cost of groceries.  But to be honest, it's more than that. After watching the documentary "Food, Inc", I am quite frankly grossed out.  And I'm starting to have more than a little concern about where exactly some of my food is coming from and what is going into it. 

I don't think I can harvest chickens for meat.  Unless the Man of the House takes up that duty.  But eggs are completely do-able in my opinion.  And the idea intrigues me.

So, we will do a little more research.  And I'll keep all of you posted on any new developments in the Happy Home Farming movement around our home.
